About me

Herbert G. Farber
started practicing law 1977 and has more than 30 years experience in Washington
State. He limited his practice to people with serious personal injuries and
victims of negligence.


Our firm handles all
of our cases on a "contingency" basis meaning that no fees are
charged until we win your case. We have won millions of dollars in wrongful
death, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and other serious
personal injuries for our clients.


Mr. Farber provides
each client with personal service. He is committed to being attentive and
respectful of the each client’s needs and concerns. Most of our clients have
serious injuries yet their claims are defended by huge insurance companies and corporations
who have great resources to defend against a suit. With the help of Mr. Farber’s
aggressive representation, the playing field can be “leveled.” Mr. Farber has
recovered millions of dollars representing deserving individuals and find it a privilege
and an honor to do so.


After graduating with
honors from Seattle University in 1976, Mr. Farber’s career has spanned 32
years in King County, Washington. He has completed more than 1000 hours in
continuing education and received advanced course work in advocacy courses
under the auspices of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.


Mr. Farber is
recognized by Martindale-Hubbel with an A/V® listing which is given only to
attorneys with considerable accomplishment and is at the pinnacle of
professional excellence with a significant track record. This recognition is
given with consideration of Washington State lawyers and judges who have
observed his abilities and skills.


At The Farber Law Group,
we work with clients who are experiencing a time of huge stress, dealing with
physical and financial matters brought on because of a traumatic accident. We
work tirelessly to help people recover compensation for their injuries
including medical bills, loss of wages and for pain and suffering. We also
represent families with children who have suffered serious injuries.


We handle each and
every case with diligence and care. Every case is our most important one.
