Like many, facing the decision to file a lawsuit was something we hoped to never need to consider. And while the underlying reasons make the experience less than enjoyable, I can’t imagine a better experience nor guidance through the process than what Emily Farr provided. The amount of attention to detail and follow through exactly as promised can’t be overstated. The conditions driving the lawsuit reduced our faith in people a little, Emily restored every bit of it.
