Ms. Farber is an excellent attorney and a very compassionate human being. That is why for quite a number of years, I have referred my client's employee claim matters to her and no one else. She has always represented them in a first class fashion and I have never heard one complaint. I highly recommend her for the highest rating possible.

Mindy,

Hi Mindy,
I am retiring on April 3rd, so I don't have too many days left! I will miss working with you as you are one of the finest attorneys I have ever dealt with during my 40 year (Federal) career.

- Lori Suto Goldsby, Head of Mediation Services, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission

 

“First and foremost, I want to thank you very much for all of your help with my case. As you know, you came recommended through a friend whose cousin works at the Montgomery County Police Department. I was aware of your reputation, but having experienced it personally, I can say I am extremely impressed.”

- M. Brown Washington, DC

 

Dear Ms. Farber,
It was a pleasure speaking with you on Wednesday, July 2, 2014. I have had a career in law enforcement, over 38 years' experience as a private investigator, and I am currently employed as a Federal EEO Investigator. Never before have I had the pleasure of an attorney putting forth the effort that you have displayed in returning my phone call, and establishing a relationship that causes me to look forward to our continued professional communications. Your extensive 38 years' experience and accomplishments certainly have not dimmed your enthusiasm, and I appreciate it.

- Sincerely,
Robert A. Bolton, EEO Investigator, Office of Resolution Management, La Plata, MD 20646
