About me

I joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2010 as a
Litigation Attorney in the Personal Injury Department.

I received my Juris Doctor from the University of North Carolina School of Law
and my Bachelor of Arts in History from the University
of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill. I have more than 23 years of experience in a variety of
practice areas including personal injury, Workers’ Compensation and Social
Security Disability. I have had a great deal of experience as a defense
attorney for insurance firms, so I have seen personal injury law from both
sides of the table.

I believe that honest communication is key to a successful case. All clients deserve an attorney who will
spend time talking with them about their case. I spend as much time as I can talking with clients. It’s my job to
educate clients about the legal process and how their case fits in. Their job
is to educate me about their particular situation.

I am a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, Auto Torts Section;
the North Carolina Bar Association and the Wake County Bar Association.
