    "Judge Parr served as an arbitrator on a complex tax matter involving substantial dollars. She handled all pre-arbitration aspects of the matter in an experienced and professional manner, reflecting her experience on the bench. She was well prepared for the arbitration and handled the proceeding with decorum and respect for the parties. We were very pleased with her work on the case and would recommend her without hesitation."
