Faith Earley

Chief Operating Officer (COO)

Anyone who has spent time with the team at The Wilbers Law Firm is likely to have interacted with our incredible Chief Operating Officer (COO), Faith Earley. And if you haven’t yet had a chance to meet Faith — or if you simply wish to learn a bit more about her — here’s a glimpse into a few of the things that make her an invaluable member of our team.

Education and Affiliations

Faith graduated from Drury University with an impressive 4.0 GPA and a degree in Organizational Communication and Leadership. Her passion for education burns bright, and in addition to routinely attending numerous continuing legal education courses, she is currently working on her master’s degree in organizational communication at Drury University. She is also affiliated with the St. Louis Paralegal Association and MATA’s paralegal chapter.

Faith’s Career History

Faith began her career as a paralegal in 2001 when she accepted a position at a large national firm. She was quickly identified as being adept in commercial policy and medical malpractice claims and was asked by the managing partner to specialize in those more complex areas. After deciding that she wanted to incorporate more of a managerial role in her work, she transitioned to a single attorney firm where she focused on in-depth litigation, managed the support staff, and assisted in planning two firm expansions.

Throughout her professional journey, although Faith has achieved a high level of management and corporate responsibility, she is most excited about her ever-increasing role of leadership, as she finds immense personal satisfaction in guiding others on their own journey of success. Her discursive leadership style enables her in assisting team members to achieve their optimal individual potential while fostering a collaborative and supportive team environment. She also enjoys the opportunity to work alongside the paralegals in handling case and client matters and working to ensure everyone who hires The Wilbers Law Firm has a positive experience.

Faith Joins The Wilbers Law Firm

Faith joined the firm in 2016 when she moved into the St. Louis area and, using her keen understanding of innovative structuring and effective training strategies, grew the support team from one to 16 team members in under five years. She continues to bring a high level of experience and professional knowledge to our firm in managing the team and taking care of daily operations. Faith has been instrumental in developing efficient office systems, policies, and infrastructure, and has orchestrated two physical moves into upgraded office spaces. 

In addition to her leadership and management responsibilities, she continues to focus on commercial policy cases, complex medical cases, and difficult or high-level cases requiring intricate legal strategy.

A Glimpse at Her Personal Life

Faith is a native of Long Island, New York. She has had a thriving marriage with her high school sweetheart for more than 27 years. Together, they have three children, two girls who are now grown and have families of their own, and a teenage son they enjoy supporting from the stands of the football field.

Faith enjoys volunteering through the firm and in her personal life. She partners with a variety of charities both in her local community and around the globe and has a particular soft spot for Special Olympics. She is also an avid gamer, whether it be video games, phone apps, virtual reality, board games, cards, murder mysteries, puzzles, or escape rooms, she’s in for the win!

We are fortunate to have Faith as part of our team. Her enthusiasm and dedication are evident in all her personal and professional endeavors. She is a true advocate for all the clients she interacts with at The Wilbers Law Firm, and we know she will be a pillar of our firm for many years to come.
