Ron Parravano began a solo practice in Monterey in 1976 and enjoyed a varied professional career in his early years, practicing in such areas as civil and business litigation, appellate practice before the First, Third, Fifth, and Sixth State of California District Courts of Appeal and the California Supreme Court, where he accepted an appointment as co-counsel in a capital case.
In the last fifteen years, Ron has represented clients primarily in the areas of transactional law. He has developed a particular expertise in the field of business escrows, having served as escrow holder for hundreds of business sales, both large and small, in the counties of Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Fresno, Stanislaus, and Merced.
Ron served as an instructor at the Monterey College of Law for several years, teaching in the fields of agency, partnership, and corporations. He also was an adjunct professor of business law at Golden Gate University’s Monterey campus for 25 years.
Ron lives in Carmel Valley and enjoys traveling, hiking, and producing wine and olive oil from his small vineyard and olive orchard. Ron also co-authored the book American Sports Car Racing in the 1950’s.
