Cheryl Farris, professional and personable
After eleven months of trying to deal with a large insurance company I decided to seek professional help. I then contacted Cheryl Farrish at the Certa Law Group. From that point onwards Cheryl and her very competent colleagues took care of everything in an efficient, professional and friendly manner. Eventually, they got me a settlement five times my initial demand. Without them, I would have struggled to pay the medical and auto mechanic bills from the accident. With them, I received a settlement that allowed me to pay all my bills and leave the accident in the past.

Car accident
I was unable to resolve an accident case so decided to seek legal assistance. After conversing with Cheryl Farrish at Certa Law Group regarding my situation I was encouraged by her understanding and felt comfortable about selecting Certa Law Group to represent me. During the negotiation phase with the insurance company , she and Cortney Williams, Paralegal, kept me apprised of developments and sought my opinion at appropriate times. I received replies to my questions without hesitation. I am happy with the settlement reached. I would definitely use them again if necessary.

Professionalism at its best!!
Having never needed an attorney before I was a bit skeptical about the process. From day one I felt well taken care of by Cheryl and her team. I was in a car accident in 2019 and it was evident that my well being was put first. She took care of everything and I was able to concentrate on getting well. My questions were always answered immediately and the explanations were easy to understand. The settlement process was quick and we were very pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Cheryl and her team. True professionals!

5 Star Professional Serrvice
My wife and I were involved in an injury multiple vehicle collision, causing vehicle stolen then hit & run, Our Uninsured motorist insurance was liable and with a law enforcement career, I felt I could handle the provider claims with our insurance company. My agent was non responsive and delayed bill payments to the point collectors were calling for payment. Stressed out, I contacted Cheryl who listened, asked questions and went to work. Cheryl kept me updated on her progress from the beginning to the end with no pressure to accept a settlement. Her paralegal Cortney was also an important part of her hard working Team. I highly recommend Cheryl and her Team for anyone involved in an accident.

Car accident claim
Cheryl was very pleasant to work with. She was a good listener and represented us very well. She was patient and was not pushy but at the same time fought for us fairly. We were very pleased with her work ethics and satisfied with what we were compensated.

Auto claim
I just recently settled a claim with Cheryl Ferris. All those I worked with were extremely professional, kind, considerate, and fierce with the opposing insurance company to get me the settlement I deserved. It was an emotional time for me and the firm really respected that and helped me through this process with zero added stress from them. They were quick to communicate with not only myself but all the other agents who often contacted me even when they weren’t supposed to. All I had to do was email the firm and tell them someone was contacting me. They immediately took care it even getting an apology from the other agents making me feel empowered through the entire process. I really can’t emphasize enough that this is the best attorney you can hire.

Great Representation
Following my car accident, my best friend (a family law attorney) referred me to Cheryl, so my expectations were already high when I met her. She definitely lived up to my expectation. Cheryl was informative, organized, and clear, so I always knew what was going on and what to expect. She worked to get the best settlement possible for me and helped me understand my options along the way. Finally, Cheryl was very professional but still friendly and approachable, and I felt comfortable asking her questions. I highly, highly recommend Cheryl.

Personal Injury Case
Cheryl was exceptional to work with on my personal injury case after I was struck as a pedestrian by a vehicle, and injured. She took care of all the paperwork, working with the insurance company, and talking with my doctors. In the end, she was able to negotiate a fair settlement. Throughout the entire process, Cheryl and her team were very professional and kept me up-to-date on the status of my case.

Attorney Cheryl Farrish & the Certa Team: professional, personable & successful
Following a 2014 motor vehicle accident in which I was injured, I hired a Seattle law firm (not Certa Law Group) to represent me. This firm and its lawyers were an extreme disappointment: poor communication, undelivered promises and a lot of frustration ensued in the several months I worked with them. I fired my old lawyer and hired Certa Law Group out of Edmonds, Washington. I was immediately impressed with Certa Attorney Cheryl Farrish. Together with paralegals Sasha Craft and Arianna Spung, Cheryl provided a more positive attorney experience than I ever anticipated. From the outset, Cheryl was transparent, professional, personable and reassuring. She and her team were detailed, fair, compassionate and excellent communicators. It was such a relief to know my case was in good hands, being taken seriously, and pursued until the best outcome was achieved. Every interaction and aspect of our professional dealings were positive, but this wasn't the end of it: Cheryl expertly negotiated two top-dollar (policy limits) settlements in my case, which far succeeded my expectations and brought a better resolution to my case than I had ever anticipated. I enthusiastically recommend Cheryl as a premier attorney and, by extension, Certa Law Group as a premier injury law firm. From the bottom of my heart, Cheryl, Sasha and Arianna, THANK YOU for your devotion to serving me as your client!

Very helpful, great communication
Cheryl Farrish helped me with getting my medical, auto and personal claims settled after a car accident last year. Cheryl and her office were very responsive, consistent and clear with communication and were able to settle the claim to my satisfaction.

Excellent Representation
I am writing this review on behalf of my sister who Certa Law Group represented in a personal injury case and, although my sister was the client, I was involved through out the entire process since she is not an English speaker and I have to say, I actually felt as if I was the client as well. Their service was amazing and we only have one or two personal contact but, we have developed an intense telephone relationship with constant updates on the case. The main attorney, Mrs. Farrish, was phenomenal as well as her paralegal. Even after the case was settled they went above and beyond to resolve issues that came across. We do greatly recommend this law firm for any of your personal injuries cases. We hope not to need their services again but if another accident is in the future, we know where to go. Thank you to everyone at the office.

Amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ms. Farrish is great more than I ever expected in a lawyer she works very quickly. She care about me as a person not just a case number. Even down to my elevator fear she always came down to meet me instead of making me ride the elevator up. She is a wonderful person and and an amazing lawyer

Cheryl Farrish Attorney Recommendation
Cheryl Farrish is a true professional! This was my very first case and Cheryl made it an extremely pleasant experience. At first, I was very reluctant and intimidated to begin working with an attorney. With all the unknown verbiage and documentation, Cheryl made certain that I understood everything. During the duration of my case, Cheryl made it a point to keep me informed on all processes and procedures, and she wouldn’t move forward unless given the OK. I felt that I could give her my upmost trust and that she always had my best interest in mind. At no point did I ever feel pressured to accept an offer that I didn’t agree with. If questions are to be had, she is extremely quick to respond and knowledgeable. I would give Cheryl the top of the line recommendation when selecting an attorney. Thanks again Cheryl!

Attorney Farrish helped with car crash
I was hit; other car traveling real fast from behind. Attorney Farrish helped me to settle and even in difficult negotiations she was very calm/confident and handled case with so much energy and proaction! I like her style. She never make me feel nuisance even though I call a lot. And she got me more than I thought case was worth. I feel grateful for her help and already send 2 friends to her for car crash.

Great Lawyer
Cheryl helped me to negotiate and my car accident case. She was very thorough and responded to all of my emails and phone calls, usually within a couple of hours and always had great insight and advice. I had another laawyer help me with a car crash 4 years ago and the difference was night and day. Cheryl not only helped me get a settlement I was happy with, but was very kind and genuinely cared about the impact the accident had on my life and on me as a person. She is the best!

Highly Recommended
Before meeting Cheryl, I was frustrated and confused. However, Cheryl took the time to meet with me, learn about my situation, and propose a strategy that I found intelligent and practical. Then, she doggedly pursued my case until I obtained a favorable result. I would highly recommend her services to anyone, especially if you are looking for an honest and hardworking attorney.
