Deborah was in solo practice before joining Barrett & Farahany in January of 2020. Deborah's legal experience has been in the Probate, Business Law, Social Security and Estate Planning areas.

She brings that same level of intensity, compassion, and empathy to the clients she assists at Barrett and Farahany.
