Apparently it was a BRS parachute:

moron wouldn't have needed the parachute if he utilized a new invention-called a checklist. Idiots like this make ga look unsafe-then again, he's a lawyer-them and doctors are the smartest ppl.
Hey Alex, I guess you have been a CFI? .. IN all my years on this planet, the most challenging thing I have done was trying to teach a doctor to fly an airplane .. too shay

yea, capt. been a cfi for a while. doctors and older successful guys toughest to teach. think they know everything. they shldn't be allowed to fly cirrus or bonanza's.

Because he forgot a key piece of information and failed to catch it because he did not follow proper(checklist) procedures, may make his clients wonder how good of a lawyer he is.

Smooth. right after runup and the checklist is completed.. I say out loud and touch the hot-spot items..just as a double check.
FUEL (pumps on/ proper tank). FLAPS (set). TRIM (t/o). TRAFFIC (scan). SEATBELTS. I agree with Alex... GA gets a really bad rep from a lot of these little incidents... accidents do happen... but come on man..

With the fuel valve shut off, I wouldn't have expected the engine to have enough left in it to do the taxi, run-up, and takeoff to a high enough altitude for the parachute to even be effective.

cigars-c-controls free and clear, i-instruments-g-gas-fuel selector valve on both-a-altimeter-r-radios-s-seatbelts. There's ur checklist. lawyers-he'll prob sue the mechanic for not putting the fs valve on both for him
Quite a testment ot his thorough preparation. Wonder if his case presentation is so slipshod.
Too bad this happens too often ... Turbo 182 is right .. as a lawyer, he is preping a suit against someone.. glad I never finished law school ...
You guys are right ... wonder if he is a good defense attn't?

Key part of the story: "Prominent attorney John Farese has crashed an airplane before..."
