Eric Farr is an attorney who represents disability claimants before the Social Security Administration. He also supervises the Social Security intake department at Keller & Keller.
Eric was born in Indianapolis but spent most of his childhood in the Florida panhandle. He received his undergraduate degree, a B.A. in English, through the Burnett Honors College program at the University of Central Florida in 2011 and returned to Indiana to attend the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, where he received his J.D. in 2014. While in law school, he worked as a law clerk for a small firm in Columbus, Indiana, that was focused on Social Security disability. He also participated in moot court and served as a Dean’s Tutorial Society tutor in 2012.
Navigating a complex bureaucratic process with its own special language and requirements is frustrating for everyone at the best of times. When you have to deal with such a process while also dealing with a chronic health condition, it can be a nightmare. I am grateful to work in a role in which our collective knowledge and experience can make it easier for people to get the disability benefits to which they are entitled.
Following law school, Eric worked as a solo attorney in Greenwood before joining Keller & Keller in the fall of 2019.
Eric is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association Social Security Disability Law Section and the National Organization for Social Security Claimants Representatives (NOSSCR).
Outside of work, Eric has retained an interest in the interdisciplinary study of law and literature. He received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Law & Literature while in law school for his paper that applied this approach to the work of Ursula K. Le Guin. He also presented work on the use of natural law concepts in popular video games at the Law and Culture Conference at St. Mary’s University, Twickenham, London, in 2016.
Eric enjoys reading histories and science fiction, watching movies, and playing adventure video games. When the weather’s nice, he enjoys attending local events, eating at cultural festivals, taking walks through cities and parks, and traveling—especially back to Florida to visit family and friends. He lives in Beech Grove with his wife, dogs, and cat.
