My name is Jared Parks. I graduated from Wilmington High School, Wilmington, MA. I have contributed to my community by coaching youth basketball, being a summer camp counselor, tutoring a 7th grader in reading, sharing my love for music (various town events and volunteering to teach drums), consistently fundraising for children and adults with disabilities, and more. All of these meaningful experiences have led to my desire to become a teacher.
Music has been my passion since I began playing drums at the age of 9. I have been heavily involved in my high school (playing the drums) and college bands (playing bass and electric guitar). I am a proud member of the UMass Amherst Marching, Pep and Marimba Bands. I am finishing my freshman year at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, studying History and Secondary Education. My goal is to become a high school History teacher. I am committed to giving back to my hometown and college community for years to come.

Kevin K.

I was referred to Peter after my divorce to put documents together to protect my assets. He suggested a number of documents that would help protect my children and their future. Also, he put together wills, power of attorney and living wills. I initially spoke with him on the phone, he took 30-40 minutes to understand my situation and explain the benefits of having such documents. After a week or two, I met with him in his office and signed the documents. Everything else was remote phone calls and emails. He re-explained these documents and what whom to share. I am in good hands.
