If you need an experienced lawyer who will fight for you, one who will protect your rights and interests in a Family, Traffic/MVA, Accident & Personal Injury, Criminal or Employment matter at a reasonable rate, please contact me.  For urgent matters, I am often avaiable after normal business hours.

My clients benefit from my 20+ years of experience in a wide range of legal areas and I have experience throughout the Maryland and Washington, DC, Courts. 

I am a lawyer who answers his own phone.  Being a solo practitioner enables me to provide clients with individual attention at reasonable rates.  It means that I will take the time to get to know you and understand your needs, concerns, and goals, and that I will give you and your case the personal attention and aggressive representation you deserve—and my fees are reasonable. 

Bar Admissions: Admitted to practice Maryland and Washington, DC.

Simply, the BEST!
Mr. Farmer was simply the Best! Because of his diligence, knowledge, hard work not only as an attorney but also as my therapist at times, the outcome of my case was favorable(for me anyway). He made the process as painless as possible, worked with me and a very busy schedule, and not to mention, was available every step of the way. I cannot thank him enough for all of his help. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Mr. Farmer!

Passionate and Personable
I hired Michael Farmer to represent me and I am so happy I did. Prior to hiring Michael, I spoke to several other attorneys and they all seemed so cold. Michael took the time to learn all of the details of my very complex case and explained my options and strategies in a way that made sense to me. It was such a relief to have someone fight for me the way Michael did. Thank you Michael.

Michael Farmer Legal work
Michael Farmer has been my attorney of record on several major legal issues. He successfully resolved all three issues listed here. I don not want to go into too much detail here. 1. My Divorce issues including division of retirement funds and child support. 2. Obtaining clear title to abandoned property and recovery of past due rent owed to me. 3. Collection of funds owed me as result of an employment contract for professional Real Estate services rendered.
