Mr. Christopher Michael Farish

Attorney in Dallas, TX
Chris believes strongly that effective representation in family law cases requires that each client's case be adapted to the needs of the client and rare is the case that can not be resolved through collaborative process or litigation handled in an thorough, but respectful manner.

He was named Collin County Young Lawyer of the Year in 2010, former President of the Collaborative Professionals of Dallas and the Collin County Young Lawyers Association; and was listed on the Texas Super Lawyers - Rising Stars List in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 and was listed on the Texas Super Lawyers list in 2014. He was listed on the Best Lawyers list in 2013 and 2014 for both Family Law and Collaborative Family Law, and was listed nationally as one of the Top 10 Family Lawyers under 40 years of age by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys.
He is a Director of the Family Law Section of the Dallas County Bar Association and is also a member of several committees for the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the Dallas Bar Association.

    About Client Rating
    About Peer Rating

    Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

    Determining a Rating

    The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

    • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
    • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
    • 1-2.9 Rated

    Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

    The Reviewers

    Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


    Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

    Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

    Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

    Martindale-Hubbell's role

    Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

    It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
