This was my first time at hiring a lawyer and was a pleasant experience. Everyone at the office was very helpful and friendly, they answered all my questions when I called and got back to my emails quickly.
I never meet anyone at the office I had moved out of state and did every thing over the phone and emails. I would highly recommend them.

Thank you for the expert legal defense you provided our small business over the past 5 years as we found ourselves the target of a lawsuit from a large corporation. Your knowledge, advice and recommendations were instrumental to the settlement that was ultimately negotiated; and, the results were better than we could have hoped for.

Amazing attorney and employees. When I had no one to help me with my child custody case they were there for me.

While divorce is not fun by any stretch, the McFarling Law Group made it as painless as possible. They were quick, efficient, and delivered exactly what we discussed on my first meeting with them. Thank you for making what could have been a terrible experience, easy.

I was referred to Emily by a friend. She stepped in and took my case, which ended in a victory. She worked with me financially and represented me better than I could have imagined. She fought diligently for me in the courtroom. I was extremely satisfied with her and her team(Tricia, Brittany, and Michael). Thanks to all of you for your support!

They were all very eager to help me in the beginning then I feel like once they got my money I was just another person waiting in line. No compassion. This may be ignorance speaking as I have never worked with a lawyer before but I was expecting a lot more legal guidance, knowledge, and compassion given my situation. I'm sure they have hundreds of cases just like mine so after awhile it becomes routine and they forget the people and the devastating situations that their dealing with.

I can't nor will I ever be able to say enough great things about Emily, Michael, Tricia and the whole team! It was an uphill 4 year battle for custody finances and everything else that comes along with it with another family law attorney. After retaining Emily and her team, it was only a matter of months before everything was settled and settled above and beyond my expectations. She was able to secure a trust in excess of $50,000 dollars for my children's college education. Secure every penny of back child support owed to me and my children! Also, to my own surprise was able to secure all attorneys fees from the other party. Throughout this entire process Emily and her entire team were alway confident, honest and comforting and just those last three things made for a much better nights sleep.

After having my free consultation with her I was told I would definitely get future child support because it's the LAW, change to joint custody from primary custody, and that a school issue would be a toss up. I lost future child support, got joint custody only because mother gave it up without a fight, and lost school issue, all other issues other party was fighting against myself I LOST all for $15,000. That may not seem like much but $15,000 and you win NO issues is A LOT of $$$$. Never cared to go about informing me in detail how I go about taking care of my judgments except wanting me to pay more $$$ and appeal to the NV Supreme Court or pay more $$$$ to have the judge reconsider. Reconsider what???? To reconsider LOSING AGAIN??? WOW! Doesn't know her judges, if she has been practicing law for amount of years as she says she should know how ALL judges would rule or favor a case. Asks you to write a 5 page paper on yourself and relationship to your ex and then morning of case/trial asks questions that could've been answered if only she read that 5 page paper.

Dealing with my child custody case was so personal that I found it to be too difficult and emotionally distressing to represent myself. From previous legal experiences I discovered Attys 'specialize' in numerous areas of law and in this case I needed a genuine specialist. So when I was searching for an Attorney to retain I made it a must to find someone who only deals with family law. I was very impressed with all of Emily's achievements when I found her page through a search engine. All of her team were prompt in responding to my calls and emails, which is amazing since I live overseas. They were very informative and kept me current on all activity within my case by scanning and emailing documents upon receipt or filing. Emily was very knowledgeable about what was relevant and composed all documents with the highest standard. I am sure this will not be the only time I will need Emily's expertise and am truly thankful to her and her team for all their brilliant support and work throughout.

my experience with this law firm was amazing! Not only did they do an amazing job on my case but they were also very emotionally supportive. The only law firm I would use for future need would them. Everyone in the office are amazing. I can't thank all of them enough. I have already recommended them to a friend and would recommend this firm to anyone. I will always be grateful to everyone at this firm for all they did for me. They will be very honest and upfront about what could happen, and they will fight for what's right. THEY ARE TRULY AMAZING ATTORNEYS! If your looking for a lawyer PLEASE call them first, you will not be dissappointed. You will be represented by the BEST!

I hired Emily on the spot while sitting in the court room. I had been there a month earlier and watched her as she was battleing another case. She was very knowledgeable and a great speaker. She definitly knew what she was doing. At that time, I did not think I would need an attorney because I thought I had the upper hand. About a month later when my ex walked into court with his attorney, I was praying to God for Emily to walk in the court room. I had no idea of her name or firm. By miracle and faith, she walked into the court room to battle another case after mine. I spoke to her briefly and asked her if she would represent me. She agreed. I felt a sence of relief and confidence with her. She is one of the smartest and most respected attorney in Las Vegas. Thanks again Emily! You rock!!!

Emily gave me the support and information when i mostly needed. I was emailed and informed on any updates and was guided during the entire case. I was able to community with Emily or her assistant when i needed.

Mrs. Mcfarland was very knowledgeable and readily available for any and all questions we had. She holds a positive attitude and outlook on your case. We appreciated her being upfront with us on anything she may have seen as a possible disadvantage to our case. We would seek her legal counsel in the future if needed.

Emily was easy to talk to; considerate of my situation, opinions, and the results I wanted. Her staff kept me informed and was always supportive. I felt that Emily and her staff respected me, wanted the best for me and looked forward to having both my personal and legal issues resolved.

Divorce is a tough situation, and a difficult decision when children are involved. From my initial conversation with Emily, I was never rushed and was given genuine care and concern. Not only did she have every bit of knowledge and detail that I needed to make the decision to proceed, but Emily also worked with us as a family and never put my ex husband and I in confrontational situations. Rather, she worked with our family as a whole and we ended on good terms and a fair divorce that left our family unit in a great place. I will be forever thankful for her and her entire staff for navigating us through this process with a very personal touch. I was not for one second taken advantage of financially and Emily protected me and my rights in a very timely and cost efficient way. I am truly thankful to her...

I was fighting an up hill battle for contested joint custody and modification of an existing court-ordered child support obligation. In the end, everything went my way; I was able to modify my child support obligation, I now have joint custody, but most importantly, I am able to have a significant relationship with my beautiful daughter and be truly ackowledged as her father!
I have worked with attorneys before and I have never had as much feedback and interaction through out a case as I did with Emily and her team. They really took the time to understand me, my case, and what I wanted.
She did a phenominal job of developing and implementing a strategy that worked exactly as she explained. She did a great job preparing me for everything that could happen; there were no surprises or anything I was unprepared for. She set realistic expectations and her price quote for legal costs were consistent with what she estimated during our initial consultation.
I would reccommend Emily to anyone!

McFarling Benson Law Office was wonderful to work with. Emily listened to any concern I had and answered all my questions. Everyone at the office was very timely with their responses via email. I would highly recommend McFarling Benson Law.

Emily assisted me with the short sale of my home. I couldn't have been happier with how it was handled and the results. It was done smoothly and went through pretty quickly. I even recommended Emily to my mother for some of her legal needs. My mother also was very happy with the outcome of her case. Emily is very professional, knowledgeable, and an honest person. I would definitely recommend and use her expertise again.

Emily provided me with the best advice, representation, and legal service I have ever received. She kept me informed as matters went forward and made her self and the services of her office readily available to me. I have nothing but good to say about Emily and her Firm.

Emily gave me the personal attention I needed at a very difficult time and always knew the answers to my questions and in the end I was very satisfied with the results.
