Experience at the highest level
While still a law student, John Parras had the immense opportunity to work closely with the lawyers defending accused Oklahoma City Bombing suspect Terry Nichols. Sharing in the meticulous preparation and intense courtroom proceedings of the most important criminal case of its time had a profound impact that no amount of classroom learning could match. John followed that up with another marquee trial, Houston's “City Hall Bribery Case,” which resulted from an FBI sting on Houston's City Council. The legal work and the courtroom experience he gathered while working on these high-profile, high-stakes cases serve as the foundation for John's career in criminal law.
John's excellent work with the “A-list” of Houston’s criminal defense bar led to an offer of employment, when he finished law school, from DeGuerin & Dickson. As an Associate at DeGuerin & Dickson for just under 10 years, John honed his talents in state and federal courts, in trial and on appeal, while under the guidance and mentoring of the firm's partners - Dick DeGuerin, Lewis Dickson, and Matt Hennessy. John left DeGuerin & Dickson in 2008 to start his own practice.
