Who’s Behind the Business of “We Mean Business”?

Jim Farrin on the cover of Attorney at LawAt the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we often get questions about the man whose name emblazons our building. What’s he like? Does he still take cases? Is James Scott Farrin one person or three?

Lawyer.

Businessman.

Family man.

(Not necessarily in that order.)

James, or “Jim” as we know him, had a rogue notion back in 1997 that running a law firm like a business – focusing on customer service, marketing, and improving the non-lawyering parts of legal service, while still striving to provide excellent representation – just might make good business sense.

This audacious notion turned a one-shingle operation into one of the largest personal injury law firms in North Carolina, with more than 30 lawyers and 125 employees operating from 14 offices state-wide.

To showcase this success,  Attorney at Law Magazine Triangle edition, featured Jim in February as attorney of the month.

And perseverance. Lots of perseverance.
