What it Takes to Win the Case for My Clients
I chose to become a personal injury attorney out of my desire to help people get the maximum compensation they deserve after they have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or disregard for the safety of others. It is my goal to thoroughly research and investigate all the evidence available to win the case for my clients. People deserve justice and that is what I set as my goal.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked in the insurance industry as a bodily injury liability claim adjuster. Having a background in insurance is a huge advantage. The insurance claim process is not always easy for someone to navigate through and insurance adjusters have too many cases to adequately explain the process to each claimant. Helping my clients recover the maximum due to them is my ultimate goal.
Getting Timing Right With Personal Injury Cases
In my experience as a personal injury attorney, I’ve seen how cases can be won or lost because of timing. Unfortunately, many wait too long to seek the advice of an attorney and the opportunity to recover their losses from an injury can be lost. When I was in law school, I earned a book award for the highest grade in a course on scientific evidence. I put in the work and saw the fruits of that effort. I think that’s why I excel in thorough investigation and evaluation of a case from the start. Putting in the work to build the best case possible and doing so in a timely manner allows my team and I to maximize the settlement for my client’s loss.
I aim to help my clients regain their lives after an injury so that they can go back to their families and move forward. Clients always come first in my day, whether it’s responding to emails or calls, or helping to set up appointments – I’m solely dedicated to prioritizing my actions in the best interest of my clients.
Navigating Cases for Personal Injury Victims in Fort Myers
I am a mom and that changes everything in how I work. I know what it means to prioritize your life around your family and an injury that takes that away is devastating. I work hard to be an organized and purposeful attorney who doesn’t spend a lot of time spinning my wheels in unnecessary pursuits. I will work for what’s right for victims in the Fort Myers area because I give my best to recover what my clients deserve to rebuild their lives after an injury. People have a right to be able to enjoy their families without an injury stealing their future.
When I’m not working hard for personal injury clients in the Farah and Farah Fort Myers office, you can almost certainly find me enjoying time with my daughter. We especially love visiting any one of the many beautiful parks and pools we have around our area. If it’s football season, I also love being able to watch a Packers game with my Dad.

Lori is that kind of attorney. She truly cares about families since that is a personal priority for her. She understands what it is to be a parent and wants what is best for her child. I could tell she would fight for what is right, no matter what.” – Chuck Farah, Senior Partner at Farah & Farah
