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.

Oakley the Dog
The Critter Corner team is growing in leaps and bounds and we couldn’t be happier with the intelligent, yet cuddly staff! We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Oakley, a 4-month old brindle lab mix that belongs to Danny Bonner, our property manager. Danny knew he always wanted a dog of this breed (his brother has one), so he adopted Oakley from his brother’s co-worker. Besides acquiring a vast knowledge of elder law and estate planning, Oakley loves to sleep, enjoys treats, chews on his toys and his water buffalo horn, and snuggles on the couch with anyone who wants to snuggle (he’s not picky). He has witnessed a few signings, helps with filing, and runs errands for the office with Danny. He loves to spill Danny’s coffee, but Danny forgives him for that! Oakley is buddies with Rune, Kathy Limjoco’s dog, and gets along well with Magic the Bunny, which works well for knowledge-sharing and Critter Corner team meetings. Oakley is very friendly to clients and loves greeting anyone that comes by Danny’s office to meet him. Welcome Oakley!

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!

Rune the Dog
In August 2019, the firm was given the gift of our newest Critter Corner author, Rune. Rune is a Norwegian Elkhound puppy, who belongs to attorney Kathy Limjoco and her family. Instead of keeping Rune in a crate at home all day (which would’ve been “ruff”), Kathy has been bringing her to work, where she quickly assumed the role of office greeter. Rune loves all people and most other pets (she has taken a particular liking to Magic the bunny and Oakley the puppy (we will introduce Oakley in the near future)! When Rune isn’t greeting clients, her favorite activity is playing fetch in the hall at the Farr Law Firm. Rune may look like she is sleeping, but she is really soaking in knowledge of elder law, estate planning, and special needs planning, which she cannot wait to share with you! Join us in welcoming Rune to the Critter Corner team!
