I had an initial phone consultation with Mr. Liles. He patiently listened to the case and provided very insightful comments. He has tremendous experience in his field and it was clearly evident. Even though he did not charge for this consultation, he did not appear to be in a rush to finish the call. Best of all, he was very candid and advised me that I did not need his services at this time and offered help at a more appropriate point of time in the future.
I would wholeheartedly recommend him on health law matters.

As I write this, I sit dumbfounded. Miss Ashley Morgan and Mr. Liles helped us with a problem we had in our medical practice, If you are a physician and are in need of an excellent attorney, I cannot recommend them more, I can not insist more to do your self a favor and contact them. Whatever legal troubles you may be having, or maybe its not troubles but you need legal advice concerning an acquisition, you really need to contact these great folks. I will probably just sit at my desk for the next hour in sheer amazement and gratitude for the great job they did for us. Seriously, call them, don't wait till the last minute, don't put this off, get them on the phone. They can help you, It is well worth it to save yourself the stress and the uncertainty of having to do this on your own. Call them.

I cannot say enough good things about Robert Liles. He successfully represented our company in a Medicare audit (due to technical errors) and was able to resolve every line item. Mr. Liles made himself available when we needed to speak to him and was very diligent in his work. He interpreted letters, rules and proceedings in verbiage we could understand. I would recommend Mr. Liles to anyone in need of representation.

Needing a lawyer is never fun - However, Ashley at L&P made the experience as comfortable as could be expected. When I needed a healthcare attorney with knowledge, experience and the ability to text back in a timely fashion I found Liles and Parker to be more than qualified - they were excellent. Could I have found a cheaper option? Maybe- but there are a few things you never cut corners on: toilet paper and lawyers... I couldn't recommend them any higher..
