About me

I enjoy spending time with my two dogs, Maverick and Goose, when I'm not working. I also love to garden and entertain in my backyard.  I love to travel overseas and am hoping to visit Denmark and Amsterdam in the next year.

  • Jonathan A Millet

    Attorney Farber's advice is spot on; as shown by the answers she has posted to questions on criminal law, she takes the time to answer questions in a common sense manner and plainly addresses legal issues. (As part of my practice, I am a prosecutor for a small town in Yavapai County, Arizona).
