I did a lot of research before finally deciding on Emily. My case was complicated and difficult, and the stakes were very high.
I knew I needed to find someone who was highly intelligent and knowledgeable in family law, as well as compassionate, and specifically experienced with (or at least well informed about) domestic violence/abuse victim's issues.
I had just escaped a very violent relationship, was super traumatized and needed someone who could help me keep myself and my son safe. Someone I could feel confident in and supported by; both in the courtroom and on a personal level as well. I felt like I had just fled one war zone, only to be thrown into another, and was ill equipped to navigate the realities of an extremely uneducated family law court system (specifically regarding the dangers children face when a parent is trying to escape an abusive partner).
Emily McFarling empathetically and capably met all these needs, and both her and her team far exceeded my expectaticons.
At first I hired her firm for a "one off" hearing; extending the protection order and requesting emergency custody. The late John Eccles (RIP), handled it with flawless grace and the judge ruled in our favor.
When my ex filed paperwork soon after, requesting dismissal of the protection order, sole custody, and making serious accusations about my fitness as a parent, I knew I needed Emily in my corner for the duration.
I am eternally grateful to Emily and everyone on her team who helped me achieve my goals of keeping my son as safe as possible under these circumstances. I feel we got the results we did, only because of her hard work, dedication to our case, to her attention to detail, experience in and superior knowledge of NV law, and her invaluable advice to me throughout.
Samantha Mentzel, Ashley, Micheal, and her entire office staff are also consummate professionals to whom I owe a huge debt of gratitude to.
Thank you Emily, from the bottom of my heart.

I came to Emily Law Office for help feeling stressed out ,overwhelmed with a custody/child support case of my Teen Father wanting to re-enter my child life after 10yrs. Of being absent. Right away after meeting with Emily listening to her I immediately felt sense of relief and hope that things will work out best for my teen. Emily and her staff are professional, informative with detail in helping me understand all aspects of my case. Emily has 100% exceeded in results of my case which led to work in my favor as well as my teen completely removing the stress from our lives. If you're looking for representation that's professional, works with integrity,knowledgable, amazing supportive staff and favorable results I highly reccommend that you work with her office. although I'm glad my case is closed but I will definitely miss her and the staff.

Between 2010 and 2015 I have used about 8 attorneys for various business matters and the McFarling firm is the ONLY firm I have ever used that actually sent me a check for a refund for hours not billed. I definitely admire this type of honesty coming from an attorneys office as it displays a representation of a firm that is focused on the clients needs.

I am very pleased with my decision to take on McFarling Law for my case. John Eccles is the lawyer that took on my case and Emily filled in for a hearing that John was unable to attend. The entire staff is extremely helpful, knowledeable and friendly. They also made it as easy as possible for me to handle things with them being that I live in North Carolina and they are based in Las Vegas, Nv. I regret that I never had the opportunity to meet them in person, but they went above and beyond from afar.
I already had custody of my children for 5 years but then my ex-husband withheld them from me where he lives in Las Vegas, while I live in North Carolina, and filed to take them from me. My children were returned to me, I am retaining custody AND my ex-husband has to provide more in child support being that his income has gone up exponentially since our 2009 divorce. It was a very long and emotionally stressful year for me and my children, but finally, thanks to McFarling Law, we may begin to move forward once again and live happily together. I would highly recommend this office.

Emily McFarling was able to do in 1mth what three attorneys couldn't do in two years. I'm reunifying with my little girl after a two years battle with DFS. McFarling didn't just empathized with my legal situation but she defended us like a mother would her children (tenaciously and diligently). McFarling has provided the strongest legal representation anyone can provide.

Emily Mcfarling was absolutely wonderful. She gave us an honest assessment of what to expect during our consultation, and then delivered on all terms. She was accessible before, during, and after our case, and always took extra time answering questions and concerns. Her staff were friendly and knowledgable, and immediately answered back via email communication or telephone. We finished our case quickly, and couldn't be happier with the end result. Emily argued well, and was clearly respected by the judge in our case. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through the difficult situation of a child custody battle.

This was my first time at hiring a lawyer and was a pleasant experience. Everyone at the office was very helpful and friendly, they answered all my questions when I called and got back to my emails quickly.
I never meet anyone at the office I had moved out of state and did every thing over the phone and emails. I would highly recommend them.
