The Farr Law Office PLLC was founded by Sherri Farr, Limited Licensed Legal Technician (LLLT).
Sherri is considered a “pioneer” LLLT practicing family law as provided by the Washington Supreme Court’s Admission to Practice Rules. Sherri has gained a wide variety of knowledge and skill having been employed full time for 18 years with a solo civil litigation attorney. Sherri obtained her AA in Paralegal Studies through Clark College approximately 20 years ago, graduating with Honors and receiving a Paralegal Certificate with Merit. Sherri completed the required family law courses through the LLLT program with the University of Washington’s School of Law, followed by passing the LLLT Bar Exam given by the Washington State Bar Association. Currently, Sherri is a member of the Washington State Paralegal Association.
Sherri is now employed part time for an Elder Law and Estate Planning attorney, is building her LLLT family law business, is the Secretary for the Cowlitz Wahkiakum Bar Association, on the Board for SWEAP (Southwest Washington Elder Abuse Prevention) and she volunteers with the Clark County Volunteer Lawyers in the family law and guardianship clinics as well as at the Clark County Courthouse in the family law clinic. Sherri also volunteers for the Cowlitz County Legal Aid in family law matters. Sherri is also on the Clark and Cowlitz Counties Superior Court Registry as a Title 11 Guardian ad Litem, she is the liaison for the guardian ad litems in Cowlitz County, and is a member of the Clark County Title 11 Guardian ad Litem Education Group.
Sherri advocates for her clients and navigates them through the legal process by providing skilled advice for a favorable outcome, for both the client’s current circumstances and what is in best interest of the client for the foreseeable future.
Sherri understands that domestic relations matters can be highly emotional and often scary with unpredictable circumstances. Sherri focuses on providing professional, qualified representation, meeting deadlines, giving detailed direction for each client’s individual case at an affordable rate. Sherri’s goal is to make each client feel confident that their needs are being met with the best possible outcome.
The State of Washington is the first state in the United States to create the affordable legal professional known as the Limited License Legal Technician. Other states are following Washington’s leading role in this profession as many families cannot qualify for subsidized legal representation and also cannot afford an attorney.
A LLLT may give legal advice and assistance to those who are representing themselves in domestic relations cases. LLLTs are regulated by the Washington State Bar Association and must meet educational and experience requirements, along with passing a national core competency exam and the LLLT licensure exams before they can be licensed to practice law (within the scope of the license).

Thanks for all your help, you were fantastic - R.Q.
I was really frustrated with the attorney I hired and began investigating the options available on the Clark County Court and Washington Bar Association websites. I discovered what a LLLT was licensed to do and I meet with Sherri Farr. I was amazed how knowledgeable she was about family law, which has made all the difference in my world. Thank you, Sherri! - I.R.
Sherri demonstrated great subject matter knowledge, maintained great communication with me, and gave me an honest opinion of what I should realistically expect before accepting my case. Her rates are reasonable and I was pleased with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend her services. - A.M.
“Divorce isn’t easy – but Sherri makes it so much better. From the start, Sherri was supportive, understanding, communicative, and proactive with all of the documents and signatures. She made the process extremely easy, and walked me through every step, taking time to make sure I understood everything. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a competent and professional Licensed Legal Technician.” -ZW
