At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we put two things first: our clients and our employees. We believe that satisfied employees tend to beget satisfied clients.

We strive to do great things for our clients, for each other, and for our communities. The line that separates the great and the good can be a fine one. It’s often the seemingly little things that make a big difference. We count on our employees making that big difference by going the extra mile, doing just a little bit more to achieve great results. And when they do, colleagues and managers, alike, are encouraged to recognize them.

“It’s an amazing feeling to work in a place where you know your supervisors and colleagues have your back.”

A Culture of Ambition and Innovation

We Are Ambition-Focused

We are a law firm focused on providing the highest quality legal services for individuals in North and South Carolina — something we call the James Scott Farrin advantage. We believe combining impressive resources with high standards of performance in pursuit of ambitious goals gives our clients a distinct advantage.

But what makes it work — our secret sauce — is the quality of our people. Bright, innovative, dedicated, driven, passionate professionals on a mission: to build a historically great firm by benefiting our clients.

U.S. News Best Companies To Work For 2024 LogoTo empower our attorneys and professionals, encourage their development, and help them help as many people as possible, we have created a work environment recognized for its positive atmosphere. U.S. News & World Report named us one of the “Best Companies to Work For” and the Triangle Business Journal selected us for their “Best Places to Work” list. And our firm President, James S. Farrin, was honored with a North Carolina Lawyers Weekly and South Carolina Lawyers Weekly “Diversity & Inclusion” Award for advancing “diversity, inclusion, and the dignity of people in the legal profession” in communities across the Carolinas.

We Are Innovation-Focused

Our goal has always been to build a great firm. And we realize that doesn’t happen by settling for conventional approaches. We innovate to create advantages for our clients.. We are leaders in applying business principles to the management of a law firm. We’ve received national recognition for our marketing campaigns, organizational systems, and use of technology (including two proprietary software programs we developed).

And what’s more, we bring that same spirit of innovation to each case. We expect our attorneys to creatively navigate around obstacles and build powerful cases. Our goal is to create an advantage for every one of our clients.

If you envision yourself thriving in this type of environment, we would love to hear from you.
