  • Douglas Blake Chanco

    When I was in law school, Jeff McFarland was my contracts instructor. It was the hardest class I ever took as Jeff is the most intelligent person I have ever met. His understanding of contracts law is beyond phenomenal. To this day if I had a question involving a contract dispute, he would be the first person I would call.

  • Christopher Chad Cronon

    I endorse this lawyer. He is my cousin. He is a top-notch transactional attorney and former law professor. Jeff is also a funny guy which is cool for an attorney that concentrates on an area of law that I think would want to make me stick a pencil in my eye hole. BUT you need corporate attorneys to keep you from having to visit guys like me in criminal court when you get busted for some scheme or caper.
