Making a Positive Difference in the Antelope Valley
R. Rex Parris has made a powerful impact throughout the Antelope Valley as a leader in numerous community organizations serving the needs of residents. As mayor of Lancaster for the past eight years, Rex was involved with many city initiatives, including the Lancaster Wellness Homes, Lancaster Community Impact Homes and YOLO Lancaster. He has also made it his mission to reduce crime. Rex is a founder of the Lancaster Child-Abuse Task Force, the Antelope Valley War on Gangs and the Valley Volunteers Program. He also has served as chairman of the Antelope Valley Hospital Community Benefits Advisory Council.
Supporting Local Education
Education in the Antelope Valley has benefited greatly from the involvement and support of PARRIS. Rex dedicates his time, legal knowledge and courtroom expertise to educating our high school students by advising them as they prepare for mock-trial competitions. In recognition of his years of dedicated work on behalf of the valley’s students, the Antelope Valley Union High School District named a high school in his honor. R. Rex Parris Continuation High School is located in Palmdale. Every year, PARRIS participates in the Antelope Valley Fair Association’s Annual 4.0 Student Recognition Celebration.
The Jacob Hefter Foundation Partnership
The PARRIS Law Firm is a proud supporter of the Jacob Hefter Foundation, a local non-profit dedicated to keeping young adults safe while pursuing their dreams of higher education.
After learning about their mission, the PARRIS Law Firm jumped at the opportunity to provide support by donating a high-tech driving simulation trailer that is used to educate teens about the health, legal, and financial consequences of distracted driving.
PARRIS Institute for Professional Excellence
In 2014, Rex established an exciting partnership with the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law. This partnership offers first-year law students the opportunity to develop the most important trait every lawyer should have: upstanding moral character. The Parris Institute for Professional Formation’s goal is to develop the next generation of ethical leaders.
