Need a well informed and experienced attorney call Mr. Farrar
Mr. Farrar and his staff worked with me and helped me through what was the most difficult time of my life. They all showed me compassion and kept me informed on the status of my case.

Response to Motion
On behalf of my brother and myself, Thank you Mr Farrar. You took the time to listen to the situation and submitted a quick response to a motion that the judge found in my brother's favor. We are both very grateful. I highly recommend this Christian man.

Excellent, compassionate attorney
Mr. Farrar has represented us throughout the years through a very complex family law case. He is always available, and responds quickly. He is not out to drag a case on just to obtain more money. He is resolution driven and always thinks about the best interests of his clients. If you are looking for a trust-worthy, compassionate, honest lawyer, then he is your guy. His office staff is great as well.

I've known Mr. Farrar for over five years and have found him to be of high moral values and good legal advice. I seek his council often and have not been disappointed in doing so for personal and for my business. I will continue using his firm in the future.

Very Worried
Concerned. I am currently going through a divorce with Mr Farrar as my attorney. Communication is bad. Weeks often go by without answers to my questions. He and his team often lack essential knowledge regarding my case. Hopefully things will turn around. I will update this review once the case is over.

My family has been using this guy for years. Wel recently we have had to re-hire him and he has done abksolutelt nothing but take our $8,000 for TWO drifferent cases. He just say there in the court room with nothing to say to the judge. Once he got all the money it was over a month before he returned our phone calls!!! We left message after message and got no update on what he was doing for our case. We feel like we have been shammed. His lack of work has caused us to be even more stressed out and to lost all confidence in him. Do not hire him, find someone who you don't have to beg to do the work you hired them to do.

Gender Biased

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 1999.

Admonishment issued in FL, 1999
updated on 12/22/2016

An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Gregory's comment: “This discipline was not related to the practice of law, but was due to a billing error that occurred by a paralegal in our firm, over (15 years ago). The paralegal in question was dismissed immediately. This is the lowest form of reprimand an attorney can receive. There is a saying in the legal profession,"It is not will you receive a bar complaint, it is when will you receive the complaint." Mr. Farrar has received numerous accomplishments and awards during his practice of law.”
