Ryan D. Farley contact information
I am a native of Wichita and graduated from Wichita High School East. I attended Emporia State University and obtained my undergraduate degree in history. After ESU, I returned home to Wichita, worked at Old Cowtown Museum as a blacksmith, was a District Circulation Manager for the Wichita Eagle and later wrote business development online education programs. I then decided to pursue law and attended Washburn University School of Law. Following law school, I worked for the Kansas Court of Appeals before returning home to Wichita in early 2008 to join Hinkle Law Firm.
My practice focuses primarily on estate planning. I enjoy estate planning because it gives me the opportunity to help people solve problems and draft documents to carry out their final wishes. My clients trust me to help them with the largest financial transaction of their lives. My experience helps me to find solutions to my client’s problems, and practicing with the Estate Planning Group at Hinkle gives me the opportunity to leverage the experience of my partners, paralegals, and staff to find the best solutions to solve a client’s particular challenge in protecting their hard-earned assets and building their legacy.
Part of my responsibilities include educating the public on the need for estate planning, encouraging them to ‘Choose to Plan’, and helping to explain the estate planning process. I regularly present estate planning seminars to the Wichita Women’s Investment Education programs, church groups, and at other community programs. I also serve an educational role for the firm, as the Director of Hinkle’s Associate Recruitment and Associate Development programs.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four children, brewing my own beer, and volunteering at St. Francis of Assisi Parish as a member of the Parish’s Finance Council and as Chair of the Extraordinary Stewardship (Planned Giving) Committee.
