  • Whitney Rae Lonker

    I had trouble picking just one area of law in which to endorse Jim Farah. He is the consummate professional. Truly. If you need a business colleague with a great reputation in this community who actually lives up to his reputation and exceeds it then Jim Farah is THE MAN! I mean it. He is trustworthy, ethical and knowledgeable in so many facets of business and law that he is a "go to" person for me in the legal and business industries when I need guidance.
