Gives 100%
After being in a car accident I was referred to James E. Farmer to represent me in my case. He was there for me every step of the way and made me feel confident that we would receive the best possible outcome. I was more than happy with the support provided from Mr. Farmer and his entire staff throughout the tedious process of dealing with automobile insurance companies. James was always available for me to ask questions and receive feedback anytime I needed, and felt that he gave me 100% of his efforts. It was wonderful to feel so guided and supported in this experience. Absolutely give James Farmer a call for any type of law support needed!

got me best possible outcome I couldve wished for.
The judge I had couldve really layed down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did a incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble he keeps in touch with you throughtout the whole process and even after your case is over with and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on this is my first time hiring james and without a doubt I would hire him again He would be the first person Id call if another legal problem should ever rise tho I've made a Promise to my self to stay away from the law as much as possible He will be highly Recommended to anyone that ask me If I know a great lawyer.

OUTSTANDING
I was referred by my 2 bothers that got in trouble in Charles Co. multiple of times. When my daughter got in TROUBLE I remember my brothers got in the same trouble as my daughter. I called them up and ask them who was your lawyer because I need that same lawyer that got you guys off the hook for my daughter. They gave me Mr. James E. Farmer number and I call him up and schedule appointment and they gave me to Mr. Patrick Troxler I did not know anything about their office. I was soooooo scared when I went in with my daughter. Mr. Troxler saw that we both were scared. Mr. Troxler ensure us that EVERYTHING is going to be fine. Guess what it was Fine. Mr. Troxler is was knowledgeable and very professional in what he do in the court room. I would definitely command Mr. Troxler name and number to anyone that needs a lawyer. Mr. Farmer I know you are VERY PROUD of Mr. Troxler. He is BEST OF ALL BEST'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Client first!
I was referred by a family member. My family member hired him to handle several legal issues. The Law firm is very warm (important to me). When you arrive it feels as if you're sitting in your living room; it calms your nerves. Attorney Farmer's firm has the highest level of integrity. I never felt alone in my process. Highly recommend.

Highly recommended!
James Farmer and his team exceeded all expectations! I had a very serious criminal case and his firm was recommended to me by a family member. I was incarcerated during this time and he and his associate Stephanie came to update me on multiple occasions on the progress of my case. They were not only professional but the amount of time and energy they put into my case showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck! They prepared for trial, but in the end was able to work out a plea deal that did not include any jail time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Farmer and his team for any criminal case!

We found Mr. Farmer through an internet search. After meeting with him we were impressed with his intent, intelligence and professionalism. We hired him and were represented by him and one of his associates. I am very happy with the outcome that he got us.

Mr. Farmer and staff are awesome!!!!
I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.

Mr. Farmer and team worked hard for my Personal Injury settlement
Mr. Farmer and his team were impressive through their work effort and detailed approach in every phase the Civil Court Personal Injury case. They also were responsive to any questions/concerns, supportive and communicated well through out the process. In the end, a satisfactory settlement was achieved. Mr. Farmer would be a wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense.

Case DISMISSED!
AMAZING. I initially spoke with Mr.Farmer in regards to my case and he was nothing but amazing. Very kind, very knowledgeable. I contacted them last minute, and Mr. Farmer was busy and I got the chance to be represented by his associate, Stephanie Maddox. Ms. Maddox knows her job and what it takes to receive a good outcome. She was strong, aggressive, and super kind. It was like conversing with someone I’ve known forever. Very luckily, my officer did not show up and my charges of speeding and aggressive driving were completely DISMISSED. I trust this law firm entirely and would recommend them to whom ever. Thanks again!

This is who you want on your team
From the initial consultation, I knew I needed James Farmer and his team on my side. He was thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning prior to even hiring his firm. Once I officially hired his firm, him and his colleague Mr. Melvin Allen moved to strategically place me in the best position possible. They supported me through out the process by making sure I understood what was happening and I felt extremely grateful to have them on my side! Long story short, my case was successfully completed with a favorable outcome! An outcome I couldn’t even imagine was possible but Mr. Allen’s expertise, strategy and court room presence made it all possible! My wife and I are forever grateful and will always look to this firm on any future needs and you should to!

Excellent results.
I want to thank James for the outstanding service provided regarding my speeding ticket. The ticket carried a 5 point and $290. fine which would have cost me my job, as I drive for a living. The final outcome was Not Guilty with no points or fines and I didn't have to miss a day of work! They took care of everything with only a 5 minute conversation. Very painless with excellent results. I can't thank them enough.

Made a stressful situation, very easy!
James E. Farmer assisted me with both of my situations regarding my driving record. He was very personable and willing to assist me when I wanted to make a stressful situation as easiest as possible and he did! Both of my situations were handled with the best outcome. His office called me the day of both events and made sure that I knew when he was showing up and when to expect me to be there without leaving me to worry. Will be going to James E. Farmer Law Office again if I ever need an attorney!

Gun Charge KING in Southern Maryland
James Farmer did an amazing job. He has a familiarty with the Charles County court system. He was able to navigate the court room with ease. He was honest in his approach and in what postivie or negative could happen. He fought till the very end, and was able to win a dismissal of my case. This was done, even though all the facts of guilt where against me. He made a plan, we stuck to it, and he was completely right in his approach. James is clearly a winner, and I was impressed with his dedication to my case.
