Young Adults
I referred DeAnn to my daughter who was in college and searching for housing. She was able to walk her through the perils of being a renter, reading and comparing leases. And the obligations of life and signing on the line. She gave her sound advice and laid the foundation to use her services again. DeAnn bridge the gap and my daughter walked away with a wealth of knowledge. I would recommend DeAnn to any parent and 20 somethings to get all those important papers in order before they are off to college and life; power of attorney and for medical treatment.

Comforting and Thorough
I was referred to DeAnn from a trusted friend. She walked me step by step and guiding me with sound advice and solutions. A process that can be filled with large amounts of stress and emotions ended with peace and comfort. Her attention to details and status updates keeps the process smooth and timely. I have since used DeAnn again and referred her to several others that have also confirmed that she is an attorney that will work for the best out come. I would highly recommend DeAnn again and again.

Outstanding!
My father’s investment counselor recommended DeAnn Farthing to help me administer my father’s estate. It was especially challenging for me since I live in Illinois, and he lived in Indiana. DeAnn and I were able to complete all tasks via email, phone calls, and mail. She responded immediately to any correspondence. It was wonderful to have an attorney who let me do as much as I wanted on the administrative side, but was there for all my legal needs. She was truly a godsend as I maneuvered the maze of issues surrounding an estate.

Estate Reconciliation
I found DeAnn through my Father's CPA firm. She shared space with the firm. Upon leaving a voice message, she returned my call immediately. She offered basic advice that I didn't expect and was available for my sister who also was co-executor. She met with us almost immediately. She had a checklist of everything we could do on our own to save us fees from her practice. Her initial appointment was a free consultation. Our Father had everything completely ready and organized for us to delve into. There are said waiting periods that are state laws, but she helped us and walked us through every hoop and that we encountered. She was also readily available with answers either by email or phone. Never did we have to wait. We encounter a huge hiccup that we couldn't get through; she immediately jumped on the credit unions to avoid year end penalties. Everything we could do on our own; she assisted in our journey and kept all siblings up to date on everything. Two brothers living out of state never questioned her or us. Smooth sailing with DeAnn. She offered personal contact with each of us, and made sure both my sister and I were on the same page at all times. Again, DeAnn was professional, efficient, and personable. I would recommend her for any legal situations you find yourself faced with. She has a Greenwood office and an office within walking distance to Castletown Mall in Indianapolis.

Out of the ordinary
I have hired and referred DeAnn Farthing on multiple occasions. In all cases she has never ceased to amaze me. Not your typical attorney. She will always greet you with a genuine smile and takes every case very seriously. She comes across as very sweet and innocent but when needed this attorney is tough as nails. As a business owner for over 30 years I've had to deal with many attorneys. Some good some not so good. DeAnn comes then head and shoulders above the rest. Fair honest straightforward, words you rarely associate with the legal world. I can't say enough about this lady she is very impressive.

Highly recommended!
I met DeAnn through work and immediately knew she was the attorney to help with our legal needs! We used DeAnn for our estate planning. She was very knowledgeable, and made sure my husband and I weighed all options before making final decisions. Estate planning can be difficult, but DeAnn made us feel very comfortable and answered all the questions. I have already recommended her several times to others. Great experience, highly recommended!

Great Service!
DeAnn helped me with some estate planning issues after my grandmother passed away, and her advice helped me tremendously. I was pleased with her knowledge and expertise, so I referred her to a friend of mine. My friend said that DeAnn is one of the easiest lawyers she has ever worked with, and it was refreshing to receive great advice & service while maintaining the human element. Not only is DeAnn great at her practice, she treats you like a person instead of a corporate account.

Deann is the Best! She thouroughly understood the nature of the request. She attacked the issue and cleared up the problem with ease. She is the best attorney I have ever used and I will NEVER use any one else. I can't speak highly enough of the professional job Deann did.

Great Person and Great Attorney
Deann took a very complicated family structure and was able to complete our wills and trusts and made it simple for us to make informed decisions and the right outcomes for both my wife and myself. I would recommend her to anyone.

Knowledgeable and Affordable
I consulted with DeAnn for my personal will and estate planning. She made me think about things I had not considered. I'm so glad I consulted her. She completed the documents in a timely fashion and it did not cost me an arm and a leg! I highly recommend DeAnn!

Business Contract Settlement
DeAnn was recommended to me by my CPA. A client of mine had not paid any of their invoices on time, and had indicated they would only pay when they felt they had the money. After an initial consultation, DeAnn explained what her approach would be and how the situation would play out. As there were many potential outcomes, she gave me sound advice which lead to my being properly compensated in a timely fashion. This situation could have gotten very ugly very quickly and she handled it brilliantly. Her rates are very reasonable, and I would say the value for money spent far exceeded what I could have hoped for. I can say that if I ever need further legal representation, I know who I will be returning to.

Quality Attorney
Ms. Farthing helped create an estate plan for my family. She was very professional and spent time answering all of our questions. We now feel comfortable knowing what will happen if something happens to us while our children are minors.
