My Depth of Experience Makes Me a Better Attorney
In my time practicing law, I’ve seen and done more than the average attorney. After law school, I worked in a large firm that involved multi-district litigation. In my first six years, I worked on cases involving federal agencies, Fortune 500 companies, construction litigation, even offshore litigation before starting my own practice. There, I represented a lot of doctor’s offices but probably not in the way you’d think.
As attorneys, when we find the right doctor or specialist to treat a specific injury, we’ll recommend for our clients who have these types of injuries to see them. Well, the insurance companies don’t like doctors working with attorneys and sometimes try to make life really hard on them to continue treating accident victims. My job was to help protect these doctors from all of the legal hurdles being thrown at them by the insurance companies. I enjoyed what I did but I saw the real urgency in this was with the victims, who really need my skills and experience to be made whole again.
Now, I exclusively represent auto accident victims and people hurt in accidents like slip and falls. All of the experience I gained before coming to Farah and Farah simply means I know more about how the other side is going to present an argument and the best strategies to employ to help my clients get maximum compensation under the law.
Seeing What Victims Go Through Makes Me Fight Even Harder
In all my time as a litigating attorney, I have seen so many people going through the absolute worst time of their lives. They are usually scared, hurt, stressed, and being given the runaround, often by their own insurance companies. I have a lot of empathy for these folks and what they’re dealing with because I’ve spent my entire career seeing what they have to go through.
While there’s never a typical day when you’re helping get your client’s case through the court system, I make sure to prioritize critical needs in the trial that I know from experience require extra attention. This is where my experience again really helps me formulate an efficient and dynamic strategy to help bring the case to a successful conclusion as quickly as possible.
At Farah & Farah, It Really Is All About the Good We Can Do
I have primarily practiced in Florida Circuit Courts, but have participated in litigation taken all the way to the Florida Supreme Court and to the U.S. Supreme Court. It was a case I’ll never forget where a mentally handicapped individual was cited for walking along a public highway. Instead of helping this young man, the police officers involved used a terrible amount of force which put the poor man into a vegetative state. There were a lot of complexities in the case, but in the end I was able to get a great settlement for the family and do my part to help make sure acts like this never happen in Tampa again. I love our city and I love working for victims here because everyone deserves a voice, especially when they’ve been wronged so terribly.
I’m also heavily involved in the Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association (TBTLA) and currently act as their President. This organization helps to make sure that the new laws on the books in the State of Florida fairly represent victims’ rights. One of the largest volunteer drives of TBTLA during my tenure as President was in support of The Spring of Tampa Bay, a shelter that provides a safe place for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence and abuse. I’m immensely proud that Farah and Farah does so much for so many worthwhile community organizations; another of which is Rethreaded, which helps victims of sex trafficking in Florida. You can learn more about our efforts and ways you too can help on our community involvement page.
I Love that I Get to Call Tampa “Home”
I’m based in Tampa but help people from Ft. Myers to Ocala, and everywhere in between. When I’m not busy preparing for my next case, you can probably find me outside relaxing at any of the beautiful natural wonders we have so close to us. Clearwater Beach is one of my favorite places as I used to do a good bit of sailing. If it’s hockey season, you can bet I’ll be catching the Tampa Bay Lightning in action along with my wife and our labradors.

We are incredibly lucky to be able to count such accomplished attorneys like Bill among our ranks.” – Chuck Farah, Senior Partner at Farah & Farah
