Farrah L. Spencer
Farrah is a partner in the firm’s Park City, Utah and Evanston, Wyoming offices. Farrah has been practicing family law for over 20 years and her practice focuses on a wide range of family law issues, including complex divorce, child custody matters, modification, enforcement, and adoption. Farrah also has extensive experience preparing or reviewing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Farrah’s personal background enhances her ability to relate to her clients and enables her to be sensitive to the impact these matters have on families, especially children. When children are involved, Farrah keeps their interests in mind and advocates towards resolution outside the courtroom, as this has the least detrimental effect upon the family. However, she understands that there are times that the involvement of the court is necessary, and, in that case, Farrah is fully prepared to represent her client’s best interests in a courtroom setting.
Farrah is devoted to her family law practice and is also committed to developing the family law profession. She is practical and believes it is important for clients to have realistic expectations. She is involved with several national organizations dedicated to the family law profession. Farrah is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). In 2023, Farrah was invited to become a member of The American College of Family Trial Lawyers (ACFTL), representing the top 100 family law trial attorneys in the United States where fellowship is extended by invitation only.
Farrah has experience in the handling contentious custody issues and complex divorce issues. She draws on the expertise of her partners at Long Reimer Winegar for assistance in navigating tax and trust issues often present in complex divorce cases.
Farrah was raised on a Wyoming cattle ranch where she continues to spend significant time. Most of Farrah’s personal life is dedicated to her children and extended family
