Goldfarb & Associates

Goldfarb and Associates, a Washington, D.C. law firm and literary agency, was founded in 1966 by Ronald Goldfarb, an attorney and author. We work closely with MainStreet Media, a television production company created by Mr. Goldfarb. Our location in the capital enables us to represent many well-known print journalists, television correspondents, policy makers, and politicians, in both the fiction and non- fiction fields. We have a Miami office and represent numerous authors based there.  Many of our clients come from all over this country and some from abroad. Through our legal work with writers’ organizations, we are constantly adding new and talented writers to our list of literary clients, and matching collaborators with projects in need of authors or editors. We have found writers to develop book ideas at the request of publishers. Our roster of television and movie projects is growing.

Ronald Goldfarb is an experienced trial lawyer and veteran literary agent, as well as the author of thirteen books and 400 articles. Robbie Anna Hare, a native Australian, currently residing both in Israel and in the United States, is a literary agent with experience as a radio and television producer, reporter, and writer. Gerrie Sturman joined Goldfarb & Associates in 2011, and she handles special projects, research and selected clients.

The firm is accepting select new projects, usually on the basis of personal referrals, or from existing clients. Serious non-fiction is our most active area.
