Licha Farah has been practicing law since 1994. After graduating from the University of Kentucky in 1991, and the University of Kentucky College of Law in 1994, Mr. Farah practiced law in his hometown of Carlisle, Kentucky for a year, and then practiced for 3 more years for a civil litigation firm in Louisville, Kentucky, prior to joining Ward, Hocker & Thornton, PLLC as an associate attorney in the Lexington office in 1998, where he has practiced since. Mr. Farah has been a partner in Ward, Hocker & Thornton, PLLC since 2004.
Mr. Farah practices exclusively in the area of civil litigation, with a primary focus on insurance defense, products liability, construction defects and trucking cases. Mr. Farah has tried numerous cases throughout the Commonwealth, including successfully defending a client and attaining a directed verdict in favor of that client in an 8-week jury trial in 2007 involving a factory explosion that resulted in the largest compensatory damages award in the history of the Commonwealth of Kentucky against the co-defendant in that case. Mr. Farah also has extensive experience in appellate cases, with numerous published opinions, including the seminal Supreme Court of Kentucky decision in Travelers Indemnity v Reker, which upheld the prohibition against a private cause of action for insurer bad faith in workers compensation actions and protected the exclusivity of the workers compensation system in Kentucky.
Mr. Farah resides in Fayette County, is married, and the father of 3 children. He is a member of Pax Christi Catholic Church in Lexington, and primarily devotes his free time to his children’s activities, including school and sporting events.
