About Charles

Learn Charles’s areas of practice.

After I graduated from Mercer University School of Law in 1998, I focused my practice on helping people file bankruptcy. When my clients first come in, they have often been mistreated and knocked down by creditors, corporations, and situations in life beyond their control. I enjoy helping people pick themselves back up and start moving forward again. I believe there is a certain freedom and respect that everyone deserves, and my goal is to help them take control of their financial lives.

To me, every day at work should be a little like The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood. I like to meet with every client and crunch all the numbers myself. I run a small office because I realized that the large, suit-and-tie law firm life was not for me. I aim to do things differently, so that’s why I started my own law practice.

Great caring attorney
Hired Mr. Farrell for a chapter 13. All I can say is he is very helpful and I highly recommend him to anyone. He is very fast to respond with any questions you may have. He know what he is doing and is straight forward with you. He actually cares about his client unlike some who is just there for the money they make. Do not hesitate to hire him if needed he will do you an excellent job.

The Provided the Light
When you feel like you are drowning financially, you may think that you will never recover. Charles was there and helped me to see all was not lost. His knowledge and patience were such a comfort during a difficult and emotional time. He made me feel like I was his top priority.

Friendly and Professional
Charles helped me to understand the difference in the types of filings and was courteous and professional during the entire experience. I strongly recommend using for any type of bankruptcy work. He is a dedicated professional and understands the finer points of the law and goes above and beyond to make himself available before, during, and after filing.

Bankruptcy Professional
Explained in detail the process and difference in chapter filings. Worked with my trustee to ensure my payments were fair, since my income had me above the state median. Continued to answer any questions that arose after filing, and worked with my trustee to adjust my payments to a fair amount after life events changed my cost of living(moved cross country & marriage). Guided me on how to rebuild my credit afterwards. True professional, knows the laws, and wants help!
