Some attorneys can’t see
the forest for the trees.
We're Different.
Here's why.

Wire to wire,
we’re at the front
of the pack.

Led by attorney Joshua Farley, we are dedicated to guiding you through the legal maze.

Big money and powerful corporations shouldn’t be the only ones who get a “fair day in court.” If you’ve been hurt or found yourself stuck with a confusing legal problem, you deserve compensation and guidance. Corporations and governments may try and take advantage of your inexperience, we won’t let them. You deserve aggressive and experienced representation to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.

Farley Law is committed to the “Little Guy.” You want and deserve to fight back and we’re here to help. We know the rules, the legal mumbo-jumbo, and how to win the game. We don’t worry about the bottom line, we worry about you. Our representation is personal, attentive, aggressive, and detailed. Get in touch and let’s work together to achieve the results you deserve.

Our Attorneys

Joshua Farley was born and raised in Kentucky, which means he is just as comfortable in a courtroom with a suit, as he is on the back porch with a bourbon. Josh attended Vanderbilt University and the University of Louisville, Brandeis School of Law, graduating in 2006. Since law school he has become a distinguished and preeminent litigator, representing clients throughout the Commonwealth. He has years of experience practicing appellate law, business and contracts law, criminal defense, and personal injury law. Josh spent five and a half years as an Assistant Attorney General for the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General and has filed more than two hundred and fifty briefs in the appellate courts, garnering fifteen oral arguments and twenty-nine published opinions. At the age of twenty-nine, Josh became one of the youngest attorneys to ever appear before the Supreme Court of the United States on their own petition for certiorari and win; securing an 8-1 victory for the Commonwealth of Kentucky in Kentucky v. King, 131 S.Ct. 1849 (2011). He has also become a frequent presenter and speaker, both for attorneys and students, helping to educate, inform, and train others. Josh was named a 2013 Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, Distinguished Alumni.

Practice Areas

Farley Law is a litigation firm. We aren’t afraid to push the envelope and we will take a stand for you in court. With extensive appellate experience, we are one of the last great “generalists.” We’ve seen the errors that can occur at trial, whether civil or criminal, and we know how to fix them. If you’re lucky enough to find us before trial, let us help you avoid the pitfalls and put your best case forward. If you’ve already been to trial and lost, we’re sorry you didn’t find us sooner, but we can still help. Whether you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence or charged with a crime, don’t hesitate, let us help you.

Services

We aren’t your father’s law firm; not even close. We don’t focus on million dollar views and thousand dollar suits. We focus on what’s important, you. This allows us to keep business costs minimized so that we can keep our clients’ bills minimized. We utilize current technology to streamline business activities so that we can provide our clients with efficient and cost-effective representation.

Free Consultations

You shouldn’t have to pay an attorney so that they can tell you that they can’t help you or you don’t have a case. We offer free consultations, whether in person or by phone, so that you can be informed about your case before opening your wallet.

Flexible Payment Options

We offer flat fee billing whenever possible so that you know the cost for all of your legal services upfront. In those cases in which we cannot offer flat fee billing we bill hourly with upfront retainer payments, leaving you in control of how high your bill might go. We also offer contingency fee arrangements on all personal injury cases; you don’t owe or pay us anything until we settle or win your case.

Online Payments

Cash is king, but we don’t carry it anymore, so we accept all major credit cards.

How can we take a stand for you?

While we look forward to hearing from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Please do not send us any confidential or sensitive information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us confirming that we represent you (an "engagement letter"). In the event that we are representing a party with opposing interests to your own, we may have a duty to disclose any information you provide to our client.
