Joshua D. Farley was born and raised in Kentucky, which means he is just as comfortable in a courtroom with a suit, as he is on the back porch with a bourbon. Farley attended Vanderbilt University and the University of Louisville, Brandeis School of Law, graduating in 2006. Since law school, he has become a distinguished and preeminent litigator, representing clients throughout the Commonwealth. He has years of experience practicing appellate law, business and contracts law, criminal defense, and personal injury law.
Farley spent 5+ years as an Assistant Attorney General for the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General and has filed more than two hundred and fifty briefs in the appellate courts, garnering fifteen oral arguments and twenty-nine published opinions. At the age of twenty-nine, Josh became one of the youngest attorneys to ever appear before the Supreme Court of the United States on their own petition for certiorari and win; securing an 8-1 victory for the Commonwealth of Kentucky in Kentucky v. King, 131 S.Ct. 1849 (2011). He has also become a frequent presenter and speaker, both for attorneys and students, helping to educate, inform, and train others.
Farley has also represented personal injury victims, handling appeals, and represented businesses in civil matters. After owning his own law firm for five years, Farley joined the trial team at Bubalo Law PLC, where he represents clients that have been wrongly injured.
Farley was named a 2013 Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, Distinguished Alumni; AV-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell; 10.0 AVVO Rating; and a 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 Super Lawyers Rising Star. He is admitted to the practice of law in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, all Kentucky federal courts, and the Supreme Court of the United States. He is a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, the Louisville Bar Association, American Association for Justice, and the Kentucky Justice Association. When not fighting for his clients, Farley enjoys spending time with his family and dogs in the outdoors, traveling, and cheering for his almae matres, Louisville and Vanderbilt.
