About Spencer

Learn Spencer’s areas of practice.

DEDICATED TO INJURY VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES.

The law was once considered an honored profession. I believe that it still is, and was blessed to study at one of the nation’s finest law schools, the Washington University School of Law. After working for several of the Midwest's most respected and talented attorneys I founded The S.E. Farris Law Firm. Our focus is on the needs of injury victims and their families.

 

Spencer has been the lead or supporting trial attorney in cases involving defective baby seats, dangerous drugs, defectively designed automobiles and airplanes, medical mistakes, nursing home neglect, discrimination, motor vehicle crashes involving motorcycles, semi-trucks and passenger vehicles, falls and work related injuries. Currently helping clients with injuries due to exposure to dangerous drugs such as Vioxx, and asbestos related injuries.

 

When you hire our firm, you meet the attorney who will be with you throughout the legal process. You won't be "passed" around the firm as your case progresses. We approach our cases as a team, and you have the benefit of our teamwork when your case is ready for trial. We understand that your only case is your most important case!

 

Since we are by design small, we don't advertise tens of thousands of clients "served." In order to give you the personalized attention you deserve, we are selective about the clients we choose to represent. Once we have chosen each other you can depend on honest, prompt answers to your questions, professional expertise, and dedication.

Personal
I thank God for my blessed and highly favored Attorney Spencer E. Farris. Very professional and concerned. Attorney Farris explained everything to me, then moved into action. Oh it gets better, Attorney Farris has top of the line staff. When I called the office 98% of the time they answered the phone on the first ring. Also if they have to call me back, it was within minutes or an an hour. They treat you like family. I am telling you what I have experienced with Attorney Farris and his staff. Excellence. Who does this? Only the children of God Almighty.

Simply the best.
I could not have been more pleased with an attorney. Spencer and his team made every aspect of my case a breeze. Anytime I called or emailed, they were there with an answer right away, not to mention some of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of giving my business to. This was my first time needing a lawyer, but I couldn't imagine anyone doing better work, and if you're in the market for a lawyer, it's a no brainer, Farris Law Firm all the way!

Handled my case well
I would highly recommend working with Mr. Farris, his assistant Stephanie, as well as the rest of the team at the firm. Mr. Farris has assisted my family and I in a few cases now! He has never failed to represent us well and has helped us to receive the compensation and justice that we deserve in all of our cases. If you're looking for a personal injury case lawyer I would definitely recommend Mr. Farris and his team without hesitation!

BEST LAWYER I’VE EVER HAD
Spencer is a very knowledgeable lawyer but also he fights tooth and nail for you. Stephanie is his assistant and she’s wonderful to talk to and they both go above and beyond their duties. I couldn’t have asked for a better team during our 5 year relationship

Head injuries from golf court accident
Spencer was an amazing lawyer!!! My daughter suffered fractures to her skull from falling off a golf court. Let me tell you choosing Spencer to represent us was the BEST decision made. I was able to call him and his team Anthony and Stephanie for anything. They were always ready to answer my calls. When it seemed as if my case was not going to prevail Spencer asked me to give him time to figure it out and he did just that. My daughter case was won!!!

Spencer Farris, Attorney
Mr. Farris answered my questions about the process, and explained what to expect. He was courteous and patient, thorough and tenacious, and he and his team achieved the best possible outcome and settlement for my situation. I highly recommend his services, and would refer family and friends, should their need arise.

Look no further
The S. E. Farris Law Firm did any excellent job with my case. I felt very safe with letting them handle it. Always available to answer any and all questions I may have. Up front and honest with everything. If I ever need a lawyer again I am definitely calling on The S.E. Farris Law Firm team. Thank you again for all you did.

Ms.
Spencer and his team care about their clients. I have hired Spencer for 2 accidents and he went above and beyond for me. He advised me through the entire process but ultimately let me decide what was best for me and my situation. Spencer fought for me and got me way beyond what I ever thought I could receive. I will ALWAYS call Spencer and his team if I ever need an attorney.

Personable, but Professional
I couldn't have asked for better representation than Spencer Farris and his team. They made the long, arduous process as easy and painless as possible. At one point I didn't think I'd live to see another birthday. Believers in celebrating people, they sent me birthday cards every year for the last four years. It was a small gesture, but very meaningful to me. It gave me hope.. Something I didn't know lawyers were capable of. Thank you Spencer, Stephanie and everyone else of Farris Law. Hopefully, I'll never require your services again, but if I do, I'll be sure to give you a call.

I am so very glad that we was able to work together. They was very professional and fast. I could not ask for a better law firm than The S.E. Farris Law Firm. If you thinking about going to a different law firm please don't because you found the BEST!!! Thank you for everything again.

Impressed and pleased client! :-)
Over 3 years ago / back in 2017, I was in a bad car accident, where I was hit from behind - through no fault of my own. The damage to my car was substantial and my physical well-being was affected in a major, negative way, that altered my lifestyle. When it comes to matters like this, I'm a firm-believer in doing my homework with extensive research / investigation, to make sure that I choose the right representation for success. Prior to choosing the "S.E. Farris Law Firm", I actually tried two different attorneys, but both of them proved to be most disappointing. From my initial conversation with Mr. Spencer E. Farris to finally reaching a nice settlement package this year, I've been impressed and pleased with Mr. Farris and especially his wonderful staff - Mrs. Stephanie Hannasch, Mr. Anthony Shepperd, with whom I developed a fantastic relationship, like a family. Everyone was consistently: professional, ethical, personable, competent, friendly and down-to-earth with a great sense-of-humor. (Please give Stephanie and Anthony a nice performance appraisal and especially a raise, ha! They definitely deserve it) To whom it may concern - I "highly recommend" the S.E. Farris Law Firm, if you desire to hire an attorney / law firm that truly knows what they're doing and will walk along side of you from the beginning to the end. Thanks a lot, peace and be blessed, safe and healthy!!! :-)

S.E. Farris law firm is A Number One!
Spencer Farris and his top notch Assistant Stephanie totally and unequivocally believed in me and my story. They went above and beyond to settle my case. Although nothing can turn time around, they both did more for me than any other law firm that I looked into. I couldn’t thank them enough for everything they did for me. I would highly recommend and suggest that you check them out first! I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
