    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.

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!

  • “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.
