Eric Parker was born and raised in Friendswood, Texas, where he graduated from Friendswood High School. Growing up near the Texas Gulf Coast, he developed a love for fishing and hunting that continues to this day. After graduating from high school, Eric attended Baylor University, where he received a business degree in economics. Through his time at Baylor he discovered he had a natural interest and knack for business and entrepreneurship that led to him entering Baylor's business program, where he earned six consecutive semesters of Dean's List recognition and perfect marks. Eric graduated from Baylor with many honors and during his senior year was awarded Baylor's Outstanding Student in Economics Award.
Eric attended law school at the University of Texas at Austin, where he graduated with honors and married his college sweetheart, Elizabeth, of Senatobia, Mississippi. Eric and Elizabeth chose to make Fredericksburg their home where he started The Parker Law Firm, while his wife serves as a RN in the Hill Country Memorial ICU. In 2010, the earliest date possible in Texas, he became Board Certified in Estate Planning & Probate Law, an achievement only a handful of attorneys in Texas have.
Today, Eric and Elizabeth raise two children and are both active members of the local community. Eric sits on the board of various committees in Fredericksburg including the Hill Country Memorial Hospital Bioethics Committee, Gillespie County Historic Review Board, and Leadership Gillespie County. Eric has earned a reputation of being straightforward, accurate, and passionate about representing his clients.
Welsley got her first taste of business interning for Ark Royal Investment while just a high school student in Houston, TX, where she also obtained her Associate's Degree simultaneously. Those experiences led her to the University of Texas at Austin where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Business & Global Studies in only two years. In the process, she served as co-chair of the International Affairs Society and earned the College of Liberal Arts Geography Scholarship to study in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a result of her strong sense of community and leadership, she dedicated her free time in college to serving the coalition efforts of Service for Sight and the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired to assist children with disabilities in their social development.
Her time at South Texas College of Law garnered Welsley several awards and accolades, such as the National Finalist of the St. Johns School of Law Alternate Dispute Resolution Triathlon in New York City. Those accomplishments aside, she also had the privilege of serving as judicial clerk to Harris County's 248th District Court before becoming a law clerk for Baker & Patterson LLP, whose clients included HEB Grocery Store and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. She later was offered and accepted an opportunity to work alongside in house counsel for the company MAN Diesel & Turbo North America Inc. In recognition of her work, she was selected for inclusion in Texas Lawyers as among the youngest to graduate a Texas law school. Throughout her career, she has earned a reputation of representing clients with vigor and grace–always being mindful of each individual's needs.
After law school, Welsley chose to build roots in Fredericksburg when she met local rancher, Travis Reeh, with whom she is now engaged to, and soon after joined The Parker Law Firm. When Welsley isn't working, she enjoys spending time with family, learning to cook, and staying active.
