"Marjorie Farris is one of my favorite attorneys to work with. She is a very strong advocate for our company whether in court, deposition, or in negotiating settlements. Marjorie writes clearly and effectively, such that I usually have few changes, if any, to make to filing, which saves me time. If I were a teacher, I would give her an "A"."
