Meet Gregory S. Parvin
Mr. Parvin is a trial lawyer who has devoted his professional life to representing Alaskans in courts throughout the State. Since being admitted to the Alaska Bar in 1998, he has litigated countless cases in most State Courts and the Alaska Federal Court. His trial practice focuses on negligence, wrongful death, fraud and misrepresentation and criminal defense. In 2014, Greg was co-counsel in the matter of RDS v. Trimble Navigation where his client was awarded one of the largest compensatory verdicts in Alaska History and the 40th largest verdict in the United States for 2014–$51,300,000.
Mr. Parvin’s professional experience is as varied as his various life experience. He graduated from the Marquette University School of Law (1997) and Villanova University (1990) where he obtained his BA. During the 1990’s, before attending law school, he worked as a high school English teacher and as a deckhand on various commercial fishing vessels, longlining for halibut in the Gulf of Alaska, seining for salmon in Prince William Sound and crabbing in the Bering Sea out of Dutch Harbor.
He worked as a temporary staff attorney for the Alaska Court of Appeals, as a Law Clerk for the Hon. Eric T. Sanders, for a private law firm in Nome, then for the Office of Public Advocacy in Palmer. During those same years, he found a passion for running and training sled dogs. In 2005 he finished the Iditarod and is a member of the Iditarod Official Finishers’ Club.
While he is no longer running his own team, he remains involved in the mushing community. He is a Board Member for the Jr. Iditarod, a member of the Iditarod Rules Committee, Race Marshal for the Copper Basin 300 and Race Judge for the Yukon Quest.
