We’re Treated Like Family, So That’s How We Treat Our Clients
I can honestly say I have never worked for a law firm like Farah & Farah before. The team atmosphere that Eddie and Chuck have created is both encouraging and motivating. I have the privilege of working with some of the sharpest minds in the legal field. Though the Gainesville office is a tight-knit team of local attorneys, we have the full support of the broader Farah & Farah family.
Because we have such a supportive atmosphere at work, there is a trickle-down effect to the experience our clients receive. I love that I get to take the time I need to really sit down with my clients and hear what they’re going through and what problems they’re facing.
As an advocate, I help people through some of the hardest moments of their lives. No one is a number at Farah & Farah. We prioritize communication and take the time to truly understand our clients’ needs and then work to make a plan to make them as whole as possible.
My Experience on Both Sides of the Court Means More Wins
At the beginning of my legal career, I handled personal injury and defense cases for a small firm in Pennsylvania. When I moved back to Florida, I worked in workers’ compensation and defense for several years before coming to Farah & Farah as a litigation attorney.
Having been involved in so many areas of the law, I’m able to put together pieces of the case others may not see. Time spent on both sides of the courtroom means I can better anticipate how the other side will react during the course of the trial. I absolutely thrive being in court in front of a judge and bringing all of my experience to bear for my clients.
I’ve had my hands on hundreds of cases and each one presents its own set of unique challenges. However, my experience supplies me with the skills and tools necessary to successfully fight on my client’s behalf. Every case I’ve handled has helped shape my intuition, understanding, and strategic recommendations.
Some of the most challenging cases involving auto accidents or slip-and-falls require specific understanding and wisdom. My experience in the courtroom affords me the know-how to seek the absolute maximum for my clients. When people come to me with their personal injury cases, they can trust that I have the skills and tools needed to fight for their right to compensation.
Helping My Clients Is a Primary Motivator
One of my main motivations is helping my clients move forward after an injury or accident. By the time they come to me for legal help, my clients have been through a very traumatic experience. It is my passion to fight for my clients tooth and nail. I work with my clients to understand the issue thoroughly, and then I work to get them the compensation and relief they deserve.
Communication is an absolutely essential part of what I do. I always take the time to understand what my clients are going through. In many cases, the folks that come to me just need someone to listen.
As my clients tell me about their cases, the gears are turning in my head. From the moment they come through my door, I’m strategizing the best way to help them. This is built on the relationship I form with them and the trust we establish early on.
Genuine care and compassion are essential to the way I handle the client-attorney relationship.
Your Local Gainesville Injury Attorney
As a member of the Gainesville community, I really value supporting my neighbors. We’re stronger together. After all, Gainesville is my home too! I put my negotiation and legal expertise to work every day for the people of my community and always prioritize what’s best for my clients.
Outside the Office, It’s All About Family
When I’m not working on a case, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing soccer, and running. As a loving partner and proud father of two boys, family is everything to me. My family and I enjoy local sports events and we are avid Gators fans. Every opportunity I have will be spent cheering on my Gators the Swamp.
I believe that community involvement is a civil responsibility. I commit a good portion of my free time to coaching youth soccer teams and investing in my local Gainesville community. Coaching allows me to share my passion for physical exercise and positively impact the youth close to home.
As a personal injury attorney, I channel my passions outside the office into my passion for work. I’ve found this is crucial to my client’s success, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
