Raised on Oregon's South Coast, Shirley is a home-grown talent!
Whether you need help crafting an estate plan for the future or are facing the turmoil of a family law matter, Shirley has a special understanding of the issues facing residents of Oregon's rural coast and can provide the knowledgeable, skilled and caring attention you deserve.

Finding herself a single parent at an early age, Shirley chose to improve life for herself and her young child by completing an Associate's degree at Southwestern Oregon Community College. From there, she went on to obtain a Baccalaureate degree from the University of Oregon with dual majors in Psychology and Sociology. After years working as a paralegal in the area of Family Law in Eugene and Seattle, Shirley returned to the Oregon Coast in 2000 where she fostered the educational desires of other local residents as the Associate Director of the Southwestern Oregon University Center while herself completing a Master's degree in Business Administration (MBA) with high honors for academic excellence. When her son decided to enter the military after graduating high school, Shirley seized the opportunity and returned yet again to college, this time pursuing her law degree at the University of Washington in Seattle.

After becoming a licensed attorney in Oregon, Shirley first worked for a large law firm in Portland where she received excellent experience in the area of family law and legal practice in general. Coming full circle, Shirley returned home to Oregon's South Coast in 2011 setting up her own law office to provide exceptional and caring legal service to her fellow Oregonians.

Along with pursuing education and her professional career, Shirley enjoys volunteering time with various causes including homeless shelters, domestic violence service centers, and refugee and immigrant advocacy programs. A member of the Sustainable Futures Section of the Oregon State Bar, Shirley is also dedicated to running a green office and encourages the development and utilization of sustainable office practices in legal offices in Oregon.

Shirley is dedicated to providing caring and affordable quality legal services to residents of Oregon's South Coast. With the skill to understand the legal aspects of your situation and the ability to empathize with the personal issues you are facing, Shirley Farmer is the attorney you want on your side wherever the road of life is taking you.
