Andrea Farney
Attorney Farney is a no nonsense lawyer who cut to the chase with her opinion of your case quickly. She is not into running the clock longer than she needs to to get the job done. I would highly recommend her for any employment, civil rights, or discrimination needs.

Best call I ever made
I was dealing with some employment issues and wished to consult an attorney. A family friend recommended Ms. Farney. My first interaction was with the adminstative assistant, who was great. She took my information and performed a pre-consultation information gathering phone call. We spoke for almost an hour, and just from talking with her, I knew I made the right decision. Ms. Farney and I later met via Zoom for my consultaion. She was very personable and easy to speak with. She had reviewed all the pregathered information, listened and asked thought provoking questions. She good suggestions for dealing with my situation. After our over 90 minute call, I felt more confident about my situation. Hopefully I never need to consult an attorney again, but if I do Ms. Farney would be my first call.

Need Help Call an excellent Attorney "Andrea"
In the fall of 2020 with unemployment at its peak and the Pandemic roaring causing layoffs, its was a difficult time to consult with unemployment. I called Andrea's office secretary and her gathered information, and data from me for a virtual meeting. Within a few weeks the job was complete. She is an excellent attorney, efficient and well versed in her field. Andrea is the one to call if you need legal assistance. In my opinion Andrea is defiantly a 5 Starr Lawyer.

Andrea Farney Excellent Employment and Labor Attorney
Andrea consulted with me and listened to my issues. Prior to speaking with her, she had her secretary gather information from me and and Andrea used the data and all the facts prior to my virtual call. Andrea was well prepared. She depicted professionalism and communication extremely well. After chasing to find an answer for months, she solved my case quickly and a few days after my first conversation with Andrea, my case is now closed. What a great job. I highly recommend Andrea Farney as a Employment and Labor Attorney.

She was very reassuring.
I was distrustful of my employer for quite some time and I started looking for a labor attorney just in case I would need one someday. That's when I found Andrea's profile and read the excellent reviews. So I saved her information and sure enough it came in handy. We had a quick consultation and she stayed in touch throughout the unemployment dispute between me and my former employer. She even sent me cases to share with the unemployment office and she was very reassuring that I was on the right track. The reassurance alone was worth the consultation fee. Her assistant was also very kind and welcoming. Five stars!

Highly Recommend For Employment Cases
This was my first experience being represented in employment court and Andrea was by my side the entire time. She was very knowledgeable, professional and kind. She gave excellent advice not only prior to but also after my hearing. She was very attentive and got back to me with answers to my questions in a timely manner. Thank you for everything Andrea.

Thankful for all her help
I reached out to Attorney Andrea Farney at the suggestion of my workers compensation lawyer. I had run out of FMLA time and with no job protection and a workers comp injury that was still unresolved I was concerned about my rights and protecting my job. Andrea took the time to explain my rights to me and made sure that I had a much better understanding of employee law in regards to my workers compensation case. When I started receiving intimidating paperwork from my employer she took the time to review it with me and represent me in attaining more time to get the paperwork taken care of. I felt like she truly listened to me no matter how small my question may have been. She offered me sound advice and I am appreciative of what she did for me.

Andrea Farney Review
Ms. Farney was very thorough in her review and consultation of my employment and contract concerns. She honestly and succintly provided feedback and information, as well as suggested actions steps to help me work through the process and reach a decision about my continued employment.

An Attorney Who Cares
I hired Andrea in May, 2012 to handle an age discrimination claim against my former employer. It took around two and a half years but we finally reached a favorable settlement. The most impressive thing about Andrea and her partner, Sharon Lopez, is the fact that they actually care about their clients and they are not in it for just the money. Andrea works very hard for her clients and is easily accessible when you have questions and concerns, and most importantly she loves what she is doing. I used to kid her that she was a "law nerd" because that is how much she is into what she is doing. If you want an attorney who will work her butt off for you and actually cares about you, then this is the attorney for you. I can't thank her enough.

Better Than a Therapist!
When I went to see Attorney Andrea Farney, I was a nervous wreck from a nightmare employment situation. Meeting with her took away 70% of my stress. She made me feel safe and it was such a relief to have someone protecting me and my rights. She was more than fair with billing, often not charging me for emails and short phone calls so we could have open communication. I did not have to worry about what I should tell her about for fear of racking up a large bill. This is so important in an attorney. I have seen details of friends attorney bills where they are charged for every five minute phone call. She also did an amazing job. I was more than satisfied with the outcome. She informed me of money owed to me by my employer which more than covered my attorney costs. I was definitely blessed when a friend referred her to me. If you’re in a nightmare employment situation, skip the xanax and therapists. Hire Andrea!

Discrimination and Employment Law attorney
Attorney Farney represented me on an employment matter from July 2011 through February 2012. I found her approach to be thorough, timely and professional. Her professionalism keeps her attention on the pertinent facts of the case and her method of inquiry was very effective at obtaining the information she needed from me to proceed with affective litigation of my case. I would recommend her to anyone seeking employment law representation.

Superb
Andrea took the time to understand my situation and explored all of my options. She explained the legal process for my situation and explained the realities of our case in a way that helped me decide what avenue I wanted to take. She kept me informed throughout the negotiation and I had no doubt that she was working diligently on my behalf.

Andrea Farney review
Andrea is the best lawyer that I have ever worked with. She differs from the others in that she truly listens to her clients and is concerned primarily with getting the best solution for them, which is not always the fastest or easiest one. I never felt that she simply wanted to clear her desk of my case and move on the the next one. She always responded to my calls and email, usually within 24 hours or less. Andrea is also very fair with her billing. I felt that she was worth every penny that she charged and that she did not try to nickle-and-dime me for every little thing. I have recommended her to my colleagues, who have been very satisfied with her. If you want someone who is sympathetic, knowledgeable, reasonable, professional, and effective, you can do no better than Andrea Farney. Even the bigger firms in town will direct you to her for employment law.

My review of Andrea Farney
I hired Andrea Farney and Triquetra Law to represent me in a discrimination matter with my previous employer. Our case took about 3 years to resolve. Andrea was without a doubt the right person for the task. She worked extremely long and hard for me, and never gave up. She introduced me to the Constitution and its laws, which i never gave a lot of thought to previously. I now know and believe that everyone must know their rights and if in doubt, hire a professional attorney that specializes in the area of law needed for representation. Andrea and Triquetra Law Firm, are without a doubt the best i know. She gave me the hope and confidence i needed to believe in myself, our case, and that justice will prevail...and it did. She guided me professionaly and compassionately and made me a believer in the legal system. By that i mean...allow the attorney to do his or her job, ask the right questions, and believe in them. She is a very determined individual and tells it like it is, without sugar coating it. She is a true professional and i will recommend her to anyone that needs representation with similar issues. The legal system needs more people like Andrea !!
