Andrea Gale Farmer

About me

Andrea G. Farmer was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but has resided in Rutherford County since 1996. After attending Isothermal Community College for two years, Andrea transferred her studies to Wofford College, where she received a B.S. in Business Economics and a B.A. in Government in 2000. In 2001, she began attending law school at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where she received her Juris Doctor in 2004. She was then admitted to practice in the state of North Carolina that same year and in the state of South Carolina in 2005.

Andrea has practiced law in Rutherford County since August of 2004. Her practice focuses primarily on Social Security disability.  In 2013, she became a Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law by the North Carolina State Bar.  She truly enjoys helping the disabled obtain benefits and bringing hope to their lives.  Additional practice areas include estate administration and special proceedings. She is married to Joshua B. Farmer and has one son, Thomas Bradley Farmer.
