Bob Farley is a fearless advocate for people injured due to the negligence of others.

 

He is a seasoned and aggressive trial lawyer whose experience of representing clients on both sides of injury cases gives him a unique perspective (and some might say an unfair advantage). Simply put, he has the defense playbook. His experience continues to be a tremendous asset to his medical malpractice and personal injury clients. His renewed focus on representing victims of negligence has been met with an overwhelming positive response from his former clients, colleagues, and members of both sides of the bar.

 

A Maryland SuperLawyer, Bobhas been recognized in thetoponepercentofallattorneysinMaryland, and now joins “The Big Dogs from the Small Firm” as yet another superstar trial attorney at The Jaklitsch Law Group.

 

Bob began his career in 1986 after serving a clerkship to the Honorable James F. Couch, Jr., of the Court of Appeals of Maryland. He then began his private practice as a medical malpractice and personal injury defense attorney.  For more than three decades, Bob has handled many hundreds of personal injury and medical malpractice cases, and has tried over 125 jury trials to verdict as lead counsel in Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia and all state and federal courts in those jurisdictions.

 

Raised in Maryland, Bob is a graduate of Loyola University of Maryland and the University of Baltimore School of Law. In his free time, Bob enjoys spending time with his kids, golfing, riding his Harley and “Rocking the Red” (Go Caps!).

Professional, attentive attorney with integrity
We could not have chosen a better attorney to help us navigate through a difficult process. Bob took great care to answer our many questions and did an excellent job in explaining the stressful court process. We truly feel that he was instrumental in bringing the best resolution to our case.

Amazing service
I contacted Mr. Robert Farley after I was involved in a serious car accident. Mr. Farley and his team worked closely with me, the insurance company, and all of my doctors/medical services that I dealt with. They took a lot of work that I thought I would have to handle and helped me every step of the way. I am very thankful for the careful attention that they gave to my case, and feel certain that if I had used another lawyer that I would not have had the same amazing service and results I had with them.
