Who We Are
We’re one of the largest firms in our home state, a “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News — Best Lawyers3, a Fastest Growing Company in U.S. and (our favorite) a “Best Place to Work.” All this, so that people — like you — aren’t taken advantage of.
About The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin
The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin is a nationally recognized personal injury law firm. We’ve recovered more than $1.6 billion total for more than 60,000 people.1
Our mission is to do high quality work for as many people as possible.
Our Mission: Excellence One Client at a Time
We opened our doors in 1997 with one simple goal: to provide excellent legal representation, one client at a time. We believed if we treated people right, success would follow.
And it did.
One satisfied client quickly led to another, as they spread the word about their experience. And we continued refining that experience until we knew we had something extraordinary. Something we now call the “James Scott Farrin Advantage.”
You’ll notice it from the first call.
But what makes it work – our secret sauce – is the quality of our people. Bright, caring, passionate professionals on a mission: to benefit our clients and build a great firm.
A Formidable Team
Many of our 60+ attorneys are recognized professionals in their fields. They’ve won awards, authored books, and taught seminars for other attorneys. We know how the other side works because we have several former insurance adjusters, defense firm attorneys, and even a former state senator on staff.
A Strong Track Record
We fight for maximum compensation, and it shows. We’ve generated more than $1.6 billion total for more than 60,000 clients since 1997. Plus, we led a team of law firms in a historic discrimination case against the U.S. government that resolved for $1.25 billion.1 We don’t quit when things get tough.
No Attorney’s Fee Unless We Win Your Case2
We work on a contingency fee arrangement, which means we don’t charge an attorney’s fee unless we get a result for you – guaranteed. We will take your case only if we think we can get you a better result than you would get without us.
No Waiting Around
Cases don’t collect dust here. We fight to get you as much as possible, as quickly as possible. Our proprietary software and streamlined processes earn national recognition and lots of praise from our clients. We have a reputation for getting great results, fast.1
Communication You Can Count On
We listen – and respond – because your case outcome and peace of mind are our top priorities. We put you first by returning your calls, answering your questions, and updating you on your case every step of the way. That’s part of our “You-First” Policy.
We Were Founded to Help People — Like You
Jim Farrin, our founder, was hired straight out of Duke University School of Law to work for a firm in California representing corporate clients. It was prestigious, high-profile work – the kind many attorneys aspire to. What it lacked for him, however, was meaning.
Without meaning, there was little motivation. It’s hard to excel at a job you don’t love. Jim even thought about exiting the legal field. But, in 1995, he returned to where his journey with law began — Durham, NC — and took a position with a plaintiffs’ firm.
Jim still remembers the first personal injury case he worked on. It may have seemed like a relatively modest case. But when Jim met with his client to give him the settlement money, he saw what it meant for him. Jim realized at that moment that he had found meaning helping people with their personal injury cases.
This experience led him to open the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin a short time later. We believe that sense of meaning permeates the firm to this day. When we hire, not only do we look for talented people to add to our teams, but they must also be the right fit — people who see their work as a mission to help the “little guy” and keep them from being taken advantage of.

What Our Clients Say

Testimonials do not reference all the feedback the firm has received. Each case is different and must be evaluated on its individual facts. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome can be achieved in the future.
