Review Frederick Fleming

About Me

I joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in
2002 and I became a
shareholder at the Firm in 2008. As a
Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law, I
currently head the Firm’s Social Security Department.


 


I received
my Juris Doctor from North Carolina Central University School of Law. I received
my Bachelor of Arts from Kalamazoo
College in Kalamazoo, Michigan and my
Master of Arts from the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


 


I derive great pleasure in assisting clients through
challenging times.  By providing our clients with the proper information they
need, they are then able to make well-informed decisions about their
case.


 


I am fluent in Spanish and take pride in representing
many injured people in the Latino community. I have discussed legal topics at
various Hispanic events and on several local radio programs. I am active in the
Disability Advocacy Section of the North Carolina Advocates for
Justice.
