About the Presenters

Benjamin Farrow, Partner,The Anderson Law Firm

Benjamin Farrow was born in Texas and raised in Idaho, Colorado and Louisiana.  He graduated from Tulane University in 1988 and Louisiana State University Law School in 1992.  He started practicing as a admiralty lawyer in New Orleans doing work for Lloyds and other international insurers, ship owners and suppliers.  While he enjoyed that work and was paid handsomely he eventually became a coverage attorney for an insurance carrier.  His ex-wife took a job as a Russian History professor at Auburn University Montgomery and he was forced to relocate in 1999 to Alabama.  Passing the Alabama State bar exam in 2000 he began practicing at another insurance defense firm.  That work was financially rewarding but emotionally and intellectually draining.  In 2002 he accepted employment with The Anderson law Firm and was made a partner in 2006.  In 2016 he was admitted to the Mississippi bar and the firm opened its Jackson, Mississippi office in September 2016.  He regularly travels between Montgomery and Jackson and oversees the work of both offices.  The challenges of practicing in three states and keeping clients happy is something he enjoys every day, some more than others.  He enjoys zymurgy, probability and skiing in his time off.
