I hired Mr. Farren after I was charged with DUI. He was easy to talk with and explained everything thoroughly. The office was very accommodating with appointments. In the end, because of Mr. Farren, all of my DUI charges were dropped. A horrible situation turned into a great outcome. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I flew then drove into Dewey Beach from way out of state for a bachelor party. I drank too much, acted like an idiot, got tossed from a bar, and subsequently thrown in jail for disorderly conduct. While in the drunk tank, I started tinkering with my surroundings and got criminal mischief thrown on top for disabling the camera in the cell. After being transferred to the county jail the following morning I started freaking out. Upon release later that evening, I immediately started searching for representation. It was a Saturday, so I wasn't expecting much while calling around to all my top choices. Fortunately, Mr Farren picked up even though it was the weekend. He listened attentively to my circumstances and assured me he was confident he could get a desirable outcome in the case - specifically, an absentia plea so I would not have to fly back from halfway across the country. He agreed to a very reasonable fee.
After handling my arraignment and obtaining a continuance to the initial trial date, Mr Farren negotiated a plea to have the criminal mischief charge dropped and probation before judgement for the disorderly conduct charge in exchange for a guilty plea IN ABSENTIA to the disorderly conduct, paying court costs, a fine, and restitution for the camera.
Having one charge dropped in addition to not having to return for trial and receiving a PBJ completely exceeded my expectations. I was very satisfied with Mr Farren's results.
The one minor quibble I had with Mr Farren was the difficulty in reaching him. I was stressed and concerned about the status of my case and I didn't really understand how the justice system worked. I did not know if he was able to secure an absentia plea so I did not know if I needed to start arranging for a return to Delaware. On several occasions I contacted Mr Farren by email or phone and didn't hear back for a few days so I had to followup. This did not put my mind at ease. HOWEVER, eventually I was always able to reach Mr Farren and/or his assistant Roz. Despite my concerns, Mr Farren handled my case very effectively from day 1 through dismissal.
I would not hesitate to hire Mr Farren again.

Found through internet research. Mr. Farren spent time on phone and reviewed documents and gave good advice.
