About Me

I joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2011 as a Litigation Attorney in the Personal Injury Department.


I received my J.D. from Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law and my B.A. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


I understand how the insurance industry operates and find it rewarding to help those who have been injured in an accident.


In 20 years of practice, I have seen the devastation caused by careless drivers and businesses. In my opinion, some Insurance companies constantly put profits ahead of people and ignore this devastation. Helping injured people fight the insurance companies is what I do and knowing that I make a difference in their lives gives me great deal of satisfaction.


I am admitted to the North Carolina State Bar; the U.S. District Court, Middle District of North Carolina and the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of North Carolina. I am active in the North Carolina Advocates for Justice and have served on the Education Committee.
