Wes Farrell set out to build his own law firm to make a real difference in the world and bring justice to those in need of a strong and passionate advocate. Starting the firm from humble beginnings out of his mother’s guest house just five days after passing the bar, Mr. Farrell tirelessly worked to bring justice for those in need, in cases ranging from immigration, human rights, criminal defense and civil litigation.
Over the next few years after joining forces with his best friend from law school, Ricky K. Patel, the two were able to build the firm from just a handful of clients to one of the fastest-growing law firms in America. Mr. Farrell is lead trial counsel for over 3,000 clients seeking over a billion dollars in damages resulting from the BP Oil Spill litigation, one of the largest environmental disasters in the history of the United States.
As a result of the difference he’s made in the lives of his clients, Mr. Farrell was recognized as one of the top 100 trial attorneys by the National Trial Lawyers Association. He is a member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a distinction held by less than 1 percent of practicing attorneys in America. Only attorneys who have recovered verdicts and settlements worth more than a million dollars can claim membership. Today, Mr. Farrell continues to bring his valuable knowledge and experience in class actions and complex litigation to clients throughout the country.
Mr. Farrell is an ambitious, goal-driven attorney who prides himself on running a professional, accomplished firm that examines every case from all angles and not resting until his clients receive justice. He focuses his practice on birth injury, product liability, business representation and class action lawsuits.
Mr. Farrell received his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He obtained his law degree and MBA in international business from St. Thomas University School of Law.
Wes was featured on the cover of Asian Hospitality magazine, and he appeared on Huffington Post Live to discuss the BP oil spill settlement offered to victims of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. He was featured several times as an analyst on the Legal Broadcast Network related to his knowledge of class actions and complex litigation.
Mr. Farrell is a young ambassador for the Miami Children’s Hospital and a member of the Young President’s Organization (YPO) of Florida. He supports the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization of Greater Miami, and he works with the City Year Organization to mentor inner-city youth.
