With over 30 years of experience, the attorneys at Drew Eckl & Farnham offer uncompromising legal service to our clients, and strive to implement innovative solutions to complex problems.

Our attorneys are renowned for their abilities in and out of the courtroom. There is no civil, corporate or individual matter, large or small, that our diverse personnel cannot handle.

Our approach to practicing law is to resolve each new lawsuit as expeditiously and efficiently as possible.  We view lawsuits as a problem to be solved rather than an economic opportunity. Thanks to the firm's longstanding reputation in working with the risk industry, we learned early how to be efficient and cost conscious.  Because of this efficiency, we strive to propose a strategy that directly correlates with the risks involved.  

Our Core Values:

  • Quality: We strive to produce work that effectively drives positive progress and peace of mind for our clients.
  • Partnership: We collaboratively engage with clients to protect and advance their interests.
  • Diligence: We construct the best resolution to achieve the client's objectives.
  • Problem-Solving: We manage risk and overcome challenges with foresight, creativity and strategy.
