Like most people, I never expected that I would need legal representation. However, in the spring of 2012, I found myself seeking professional counseling for a divorce with child. After a few dead end referrals from ‘friends’, my luck changed for the better when I met Ms Farrar. I immediately noticed her high level of care for her client as she listened intently while I described my situation. Although, Ms Farrar never waivered from our goals and objectives of getting the best possible outcome for me, it was very clear that her primary objective was the well being of my child. I knew at that moment, that I had found my attorney.
Over the next few weeks and months, the case became more complex as poor communication from opposing council often left us with tough decisions. Although our patience was tested by a series of obstacles beyond our control, she never lost focus and provided me with excellent representation, guidance, and advice. She exemplifies the perfect combination of care, trust, professionalism, and toughness.
The end result….she achieved the results I wanted while making the journey as smooth as possible.

Amy reviewed my mother's personal documents and recommended the simplest and most cost effective means to meet her needs. She was personable, thorough, and efficient. Amy also recommended other appropriately qualified professionals when we asked questions beyond her area of expertise. I unreservedly recommend Amy and will return to her if we have need of similar work again.

Amy Farrar is an experienced attorney whose deep understanding of the law gives her an edge over other attorneys and greatly benefits her clients. Amy's unique experience in both trial and appellate courts and her calm but firm demeanor make her an excellent advocate. She successfully represents clients at trial, in mediation, in the collaborative process, and at the appellate level. I do not hesitate to recommend her.

Ms. Farrar handles appeals throughout Tennessee and is one of the state's leading appellate lawyers. Her knowledge of the law is deep and current. Yet Ms. Farrar is just as focused on the everyday problems facing her clients who come to her office on the Square in Murfreesboro. She approaches every issue and every client with interest, concern, diligence, and care. I do not hesitate to recommend Ms. Farrar.
