Meet the Critter Corner Team!

Angel the Cat

Angel joined the firm in 2015 when Saki and Alley retired from the fast-paced world of Elder Law to the domestic tranquility of Evan and Jeannie’s home in the suburbs, and eventually they sadly crossed over the rainbow bridge. Angel knew she had some big shoes to fill to replace the popular Siamese brother and sister act, but this stunning young tortoiseshell was up for the challenge. She attended the prestigious Panthera Leo Persica University where she majored in Shedding and Shredding and minored in Feline Hospitality. She enjoys long runs down the hall and cabinet climbing. Her favorite games are conceal-the-paperwork and pet-me-now. Be sure to say hello to Angel next time you’re in the office!

Bebe the Cat
BeBe is an 18-year-old cat that Evan and Jeannie Farr adopted from the Fairfax County animal shelter in 2011. He is a loving lap cat who gets along with all people and all animals. When not in the office, he can be mostly found cuddling in Evan or Jeannie’s lap or snuggling next to them on their couch at home.

Hayek the Dog

Hayek the dog is the newest member of our Critter Corner team. He joined the team of talented writers in late 2018 when his guardian, Sierra Kolasa of the Client Services team, started bringing him to the office regularly. Hayek, believed to be a mix of a Miniature Schnauzer and Yorkshire Terrier, is a sweet, gentle, and loving pet who greatly enjoys greeting clients, who always enjoy his elegant appearance and affections. Hayek can be found sleeping under Sierra’s desk or in the conference room learning the nuances of Medicaid planning or other exciting topics to share with our readers. Hayek’s other favorite activity is trying to play with Magic the bunny. Magic makes Hayek’s tail wag 100 miles per hour! Magic is very tolerant of Hayek’s attention, but unfortunately doesn’t share his desire to “play,” presumably due to their difference in species. Nevertheless, Hayek and Magic maintain a strong and cordial working relationship as Critter Corner team members. If you see Hayek in the office, give him a pat, and you’re guaranteed to get a tail wag and lots of love in return!

Magic the Bunny
Magic is a three-year old mixed-breed rabbit adopted from the Loudoun County Animal Shelter where he gained experience as a small-pet educator. Although he was adored by staff, volunteers and the many children he taught, he felt his true calling was to be a greeter and counselor of clients at the Farr Law Firm, and a co-author of the Critter Corner blog with his pal, Angel. His writing and ministrations are geared toward letting clients know that they can prevail through difficult times when a special some-bunny is there to guide them through the rabbit hole of Medicaid.

Ernie and Janette the Frogs
Ernie and Jannette, two African Dwarf Frogs, have been on the staff of Critter Corner for years. One Christmas, Jeannie’s secret santa kindly purchased them for her desk. They are excited about the opportunity to answer your questions! Come visit them next time you are in the office!
