Laraclay Parker

Laraclay is a partner and trial lawyer with Golden Law Office in Lexington, Kentucky. She devotes her practice to fighting corporate wrongdoing in the healthcare system. In 2023 alone, Laraclay has obtained over $20 million in jury verdicts for her clients against national pharmacy chains, regional hospitals, and doctors for harming Kentuckians. Her jury cases have involved charges of records spoliation and deletion of evidence which required significant pretrial deposition and motion practice.

Laraclay is a recognized national speaker on issues relating to electronic medical records preservation, discovery, healthcare organizations, and healthcare fraud. Her cases have been featured in the national news media because they raise complex questions about the deletion and fabrication of medical records and physician ethics. She has been a member of the Super Lawyers Rising Star list since 2021, an honor awarded to just 2.5% of Kentucky attorneys. She is also recognized by the National Trial Lawyers as a Top 40 under 40 Civil Plaintiff Lawyer. She sits on the Executive Board for the American Association of Justice Nursing Home Litigation Group, a national plaintiff attorney organization dedicated to protecting the right to trial by jury.


Laraclay’s legal practice is informed by her background and training. When she passed the bar, her first legal job was at a large regional law firm that only did defense work. She spent two years defending national manufacturing corporations, nursing home chains, and pharmaceutical companies against their own employees, victims of malpractice, and others who had been injured by her clients’ businesses. In 2016, she nearly quit the practice of law rather than continue her defense practice. Instead, she decided to change her whole career to focus exclusively on injured Kentuckians and has never looked back. Laraclay’s inside experience on how large corporations operate from a financial, legal, and ethical perspective helps her expose the harm done to her clients in the courtroom.
