Mr. Palker was raised by a single mother and learned the value of hard, honest work from an early age and has unwaveringly been a member of the workforce since age fourteen. Having worked in a wide array of industries (including everything from restaurants, nightlife, events, and healthcare to professional sports), and even after starting multiple companies before the age of twenty, Mr. Palker found his passion for the law in college. In 2012, Mr. Palker discovered his true career path when he obtained a job as a legal assistant. While working as a legal assistant, Mr. Palker was involved with the litigation of catastrophic hail damage claims arising out of the March 29, 2012, and April 20, 2012 hailstorms in Hidalgo County. During this time, Mr. Palker learned how to draft lawsuits, demands, discovery, and motions — skills he has continued to use to this day. In 2015, Mr. Palker shifted gears and began working for a personal injury law firm as a paralegal, where he was rapidly promoted after he demonstrated that he always wanted to learn and do more — often by working into the late hours of the night, long after his coworkers had gone home. In the years that followed, Mr. Palker was promoted to senior litigation paralegal, all while still finishing up his bachelor’s and law degrees and attending classes full-time. Following his graduation from St. Mary’s University School of Law, Mr. Palker was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in December 2019. Since that time, Mr. Palker has tackled hundreds of First-Party Insurance Claims, been involved in mass tort litigation related to explosions along the Gulf Coast, and has undertaken the litigation of numerous other Consumer Protection lawsuits. Mr. Palker has been recognized as a Lifetime Charter Member by the Best Attorneys of America, as a Top 40 Under 40 attorney by the American Academy of Attorneys, and proudly holds the record for the largest residential storm damage judgment in South Texas.
