About me

As the managing partner of the law firm Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP, I have been an avid believer in pursing justice for those injured and killed as the result of a personal injury. Early in my working career, I was a long-term employee of the Norfolk Southern Railway Corporation. I saw first hand the devastating and life-altering impact of work place injuries to railroad workers during the eleven years he worked as a laborer in the Maintenance of Way department. For almost two decades, I have dedicated my practice to representing victims of personal injury and Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
