Richard Farnsworth is an attorney practicing family law, including adoptions, divorces, child custody, wills, trusts, and other civil litigation. Richard received his Bachelor of Arts in English in 1978, and received his J.D. degree in 1982 from Emory Law School. Richard has served on PATH’s Board of Directors since PATH’s inception in 1996, and was instrumental in obtaining non-profit status for the organization. His wife, Anne, and he have been married 38 years, and have four children. Richard credits his late father, Herb, with instilling pro-life values, opposing both abortion and capital punishment. In 2016, the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers gave him an award for his frequent pro bono representation of victims of family violence. His article about family violence was published in the August 2, 2017 Daily Report. When he speaks for PATH, he always shares his admiration for the courageous women who accept PATH's healing and then become the greatest spokespeople against abortion. He says, "It is humbling to watch these women speak from the hardest and most emotional experiences of their lives, putting their own embarrassment aside to help others avoid the same pitfall." Richard’s interests include “a life-long struggle to play the piano well”, reading, soccer, and writing.
