When Parker was a kid, riding around Ponchatoula on his bike was everything to him. It was one of his most liberating experiences, and, it stuck with him when he became a car accident lawyer in his hometown.
He wanted kids – the ones who were not as fortunate as he was – to get that same free feeling that he had.
So, he vowed that when he earned enough money to feed his family and employees, he would start giving back to deserving kids who needed bikes.
Parker Layrisson Law Firm’s Bikes for Kids program has given away dozens of bikes since 2016.
Each week of the summer, Parker gives away bikes to kids who have been nominated by their fellow members of the community for their personal achievements and contributions to the community.
