Like Cervantes’ Don Quixote, Mr. Farhang began his higher education with a search for life’s meaning, answers to the deeper questions of existence, and the pursuit of noble virtues. He graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, with a minor in Religious Studies, and two years of Spanish language studies. After time tilting at windmills and discovering that life is a process, he turned his gaze to the law and the Aristotelian promise that all virtue is summed up in dealing justly.

He attended Southwestern Law School and graduated with a Juris Doctorate in 2009, a recipient of the Paul W. Wildman Scholarship for Academic Achievement, a Public Interest Law Foundation Grant (2007), and an Exceptional Achievement Award in Alternative Dispute Resolution. He served as a research assistant to the Justice Marshall F. McComb Professor of Law, Mr. Robert E. Lutz, and was a Senior Staff Writer (Politics) for Southwestern’s publication The Commentator.

“ Don’t explain your philosophy. Embody it. ”

– Epictetus

Having learned that justice requires practice, and holding Aristotle’s mandate that virtues are obtained first by exercising them – that we become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts – he completed an internship with the Working People’s Law Center in Los Angeles, as well as an externship to the Hon. Andrew C. Kauffman of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. Following admission to the California Bar, Mr. Farhang served as an intern-attorney to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office Police Litigation Section, while also managing a solo practice.

Mr. Farhang turned his attention to the safeguarding of California’s benefit delivery system known as workers’ compensation when he joined Kegel, Tobin & Truce in 2010, becoming a Shareholder in 2015, and the Managing Shareholder of the firm’s Ontario office in 2019. He represents a broad range of clients in workers’ compensation matters, with an emphasis on public entities and safety member claims. Mr. Farhang is a popular speaker at sessions and seminars on workers’ compensation issues. He is always available for customized training sessions for his clientele, or a coffee and chat about life’s mysteries.
