Ty Alan Farnsworth

Managing Associate
Anchorage, Alaska

After spending years managing successful businesses and being frustrated with business attorneys, I decided to go to law school so I could be a better attorney for my clients than my attorneys were for me. Now I help clients start and run their businesses, and I help protect clients' property from bankruptcy when times get tough. For me, it is all about seeing people succeed and helping them when they don’t. Whether you are a business that needs help, or a person looking for a fresh start, I am here to help protect what matters most.

In Addition to my business expertise, I have clerked for various legal offices including the Judge Advocate General's Office of the U.S. Air Force, the Washington State Court of Appeals, and most recently Vial Fotheringham LLP, a large multi-state debt collection law firm. All these experiences come together to offer my clients the level of representation they need in the hour they need it most.
