About Us

Farrah S. Wax, Esq.

Born and raised in New York City, Attorney Wax began her career in a challenging and rewarding family law practice before deciding to make the bucolic Berkshires her home in 2009.  Prior to opening her own practice, she was an associate for DeRosa Dohoney, where she primarily handled family law matters in addition to civil litigation.

In 2012, Attorney Wax opened her own family law practice and is pleased and proud to be located in her home community of Great Barrington.  The practice handles and supports all complex aspects of family law, including divorce, child custody and support issues, alimony, real estate and retirement account divisions, pre and post-nuptial agreements, guardianship and adoption.

Attorney Wax achieved her undergraduate degree from State University of New York at Buffalo in 1999 majoring in Political Science.  She attended New York Law School, from where she received her J.D. in 2002.  While a student, Attorney Wax worked at the New York City Department of Education, serving children with multiple disabilities and those on the Autism spectrum, in various capacities including special education teacher.

Attorney Wax resides in Southern Berkshire County with her husband and two daughters.  Although you can take the girl out of Brooklyn and replant her in the Berkshires, you can’t take the Brooklyn out of the girl.  She is fiercely competitive.  Attorney Wax brings that service to her clients and advocates with calm, intelligent and passionate fervor, never losing sight that at the heart of the dispute, is a family.

Attorney Wax is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and New York.  Please see her contact details below to schedule a consultation.
