Best 30 Minute Consultation I Could Ask For
I was starting my research on divorce from my spouse and reached out to several lawyers on Avvo. I would either get totally ignored or have to chase people down to call me back. Devlin got back to me within a day and I was quickly able to schedule a phone consultation. He was very understanding and empathetic to my situation. He gave me some great advice and free resources. I wrote down a full page of notes and directions during our conversation. He was so generous with his time that he even looked over my draft separation agreement. He couldn’t mediate my divorce because he already gave me personalized advice but referred me to a few reputable colleagues. I would definitely recommend Devlin to a friend or go back to him if I need any more legal help.

Excellent experience.
We worked with Attorney Farmer on a collaborative divorce and he provided excellent expert advice and service. His careful work made our divorce as cooperative and gentle as possible. We are very pleased with the outcome, largely due to his fine work. We recommend him very highly, without hesitation, to couples who want compassionate, expert legal service.

Reliable Attorney
I just recently finished divorce proceedings, and I'm extremely thankful I chose Farmer Family Law. Devlin was knowledgeable, organized , personable, and always made me feel confident that he had my case under control. Even when I wanted to go in a direction that seemed to be logical to me, Devlin gently moved me in the right direction, explaining the reasons why, and how it would work in my favor in the long run. I trusted him on this major move, and in the end, it was his advice that led to a decision that provided me the legal leverage I needed to get a fair settlement. I'm more than satisfied, and on a personal level, Devlin is very easy to get along with, and I thought that his rapport with my ex-wife's attorney was professional, while at the same time friendly enough to get the deal that I felt was fair and equitable. As for expenses, I believe the cost was more than fair, and that Devlin was reasonably flexible in accommodating my financial situation. I would highly recommend retaining Attorney Devlin Farmer for your mediation or divorce.
