  • Kristen Boswell Amonette

    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.
