She was amazing. Understood my case, had a wealth of knowledge surrounding it. Had great empathy for the nightmare situation I was in. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone need help!!!!

I would absolutely 100% recommend Erin Farley to a friend, and have already done so twice! LOL!
I can't understand why anyone would give a subpar review for Erin here on Avvo, and have instead found her to be an incredibly kind, intelligent and competent attorney.
I was first referred to Erin by a friend in 2013 when my ex and I decided to separate. I was obviously anxious and upset at the time (not to mention a little untrustworthy of anyone in the legal profession...), but I knew I needed to speak to someone about what a divorce would actually mean for me and my family.
Erin really helped me understand and come to terms with my divorce, and helped prepare me for everything that would follow (divvying up assets, custody battle, etc.)
I eventually hired Erin to represent me during divorce proceedings in 2014, and could not be more happy with that decision. I was really angry at my ex at the time and at first thought of hiring a 'shark' lawyer to get what was mine, but through mediation with Erin I was actually able to come to an agreement with my ex and settle our divorce out of the court room.
Not only did the settlement swing in my favor, but I do believe that attempting to avoid conflict during the divorce was what was best for my children. I also thing that our divorce mediations helped my ex and I become better co-parents today because it helped us put our family first instead of ourselves. We will, after all, be in each other's lives forever through our children, and I want to thank the Law Office of Erin Farley for understanding that and respecting it.

Erin Farley helped me four years ago with a dicey landlord/tenant issue. Long story short: my roommates and I signed a contract and agreed to live in an apartment without being aware that our unit would be under construction while we lived there. After living amidst sawdust and construction workers who walked in and out without knocking, I asked a friend for the name of the lawyer who had recently helped her out. She recommended Erin, and I am so grateful she did!
Erin was gracious, intelligent, determined, and even more importantly - personable! It was so lovely to work with an attorney who actually genuinely seemed to care about me and my situation. I've experienced other attorneys before who were 'wooden' and anti-social. Erin was the exact opposite and was truly compassionate.
Not only was she helpful, she got the job done! My roommates and I soon got a drastic cut off our rent, got money back, and even got to stay in a different unit while they finished construction.
THANK YOU ERIN!
