Accidents—such as car accidents, trucking accidents, and motorcycle accidents—occur every day in the Waldorf, Maryland area. A fall at work can leave you with painful and debilitating injuries in addition to being unable to work. A slip and fall accident can leave you facing mounting medical bills, not to mention immense physical and emotional pain and suffering.

In short, an accident can leave you dealing with serious physical, emotional, and financial consequences. When your injuries and other losses were caused by another person, company, or party’s negligent or wrongful actions, you shouldn’t have to simply face these consequences on your own. You deserve to work with an experienced and aggressive legal team that is not afraid to fight for the full and fair compensation that you need and deserve.

At Farmer & Klopfer, our Waldorf personal injury lawyers prove every day how accident victims can benefit from the advice and representation of an experienced attorney. In addition to our extensive personal injury practice, we provide aggressive legal defense for those accused of criminal offenses, such as DUI or drug crimes, throughout the region.

Regardless of the matter at hand, we treat each client and every case with the utmost respect and care, always focusing on the client’s unique needs and striving for the best possible outcome. Whether you are up against the government or a massive insurance company and its army of lawyers, we are in it to win it.

  • “Showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck”
    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!

  • “Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable”
    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.
