Eric Farris has been the counselor to the Bullitt County Board of Education for many years. As superintendent, I find his legal knowledge, prominence in the community, commitment to public education, and his extraordinary sense of good humor and wit invaluable in coping with the myriad of issues that confront our school district on a constant basis.

I was facing serious criminal charges for something I didn't even do and was looking at 10-20 years in prison. Mr. Farris and his team went right to work. His personal advice helped keep us very confident of a great outcome. Mr. Farris kept in close touch throughout the whole ordeal and never made it difficult to reach him. In the end, both cases were dismissed with prejudice...and I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to have on my side.
