David Weinberg, Stephen Barnes, Jerbrina Johnson, Cade Parian, & Emily Rowell



CadeHSCade Parian w/ The Parian Law Firm, LLC.

When you call Cade Parian, you understand what it means to “Call Cade, Get Paid.”  He is not a traditional attorney, and his law firm, The Parian Law Firm, LLC, is not the traditional law firm. His approach is personal and compassionate as if you are a member of his extended family.  He has fought for individuals across America to get results they deserve in personal injury litigation, workers compensation, and consumer debt collection defense.

Cade actively participates in causes that further individual growth.  He coached youth football in his community each year, not to relive the his glory years past, but to become a role model to the children who lack such. Cade’s desire to help others build better lives can be found all over his community.

Cade has been named a Georgia rising star by Atlanta Magazine and Super Lawyers Magazine, and in 2014, The National Trial Lawyers and “The Fulton County Daily Report” both honored Cade as a “Top 40 Under 40” Lawyer.

Cade’s home base is Carrollton where he and his wife raise their two young children. While not preparing for trial or chasing children, Cade enjoys all things motorsports (except driving the things), and being the worst golfer on any golf course at any time.
