Eric Jeffrey Farber

About me

I have practiced over 20 years in the Bay Area representing athletes, entertainers and high-profile businesses.  After representing hundreds of athletes in their Workers' Compensation cases against teams for their injuries, we opened our practice to all workers. Our firm specializes in great client services to get the best results for all of our clients.  We represent hundreds of workers from all walks of life, health care, union workers, police officers, firefighters, tech workers and farm workers.  We pride ourselves on client service and aggressive advocacy.

Pacific Workers' Compensation Law Center is a wholly owned division of Farber & Company Attorneys.  We are 100% dedicated to serving injured workers.  

We accept and have done all kinds of injured worker cases from smaller injuries to death claims. The law firm is AV Rated by Martindale-Hubbel, the highest level of competence and ethics bestowed on a firm.  I have been named a Northern California Superlawyer 4 times and to the Best Lawyers in California multiple times.
