Waldorf Opioid Drug Crime Lawyers
Are You Facing Drug Charges Related to Opioids?
For decades, doctors have readily and freely prescribed a class of prescription painkillers known as opioids. Comprising pain medications like morphine, methadone, hydrocodone, and oxycodone, these prescription drugs are routinely prescribed and sold under the brand names of OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet, and Demerol.
While previously billed by drug manufacturers and physicians as safe and not habit-forming, opioids are highly addictive and have been linked to hundreds of thousands of overdoses and accidental deaths.
In an attempt to stem the growing opioid drug epidemic in Maryland and throughout the United States, new laws and restrictions have been put in place that limit the circumstances under which doctors are allowed to prescribe opioids and the quantity of drugs they can legally prescribe. Today, opioids are in high demand, and many people illegally obtain and use the drugs.
The Farmer & Klopfer represents those charged with opioid offenses in Waldorf and throughout Southern Maryland. Recently, Attorney James E. Farmer represented a defendant acquitted of murder charges in opioid overdose case.
A Successful Track Record Defending against Drug Charges
At Farmer & Klopfer, we understand the personal struggles and difficulties that many people who are charged with opioid-related crimes face. Our attorneys know that these charges, and the associated penalties, are serious and that a guilty plea or conviction will alter the course of your life.
We have the reputation and experience to properly represent individuals facing a range of criminal charges related to the possession, trafficking, distribution, and use of these potent drugs. This includes individuals who face additional criminal charges stemming from the sale or use of opioids.
In one recent case, we represented a 30-year-old man who faced serious criminal charges, including second-degree murder and involuntary murder related to the overdose death of a 58-year-old woman. In this case, defense attorney James E. Farmer presented compelling evidence to convince a seven-person jury that the man was not responsible for the woman’s death—helping his client avoid a potential 30-year prison sentence.

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!”
He got me the best possible sentencing I've could have asked for.
“I've had several lawyers over the last decade and James Farmer has been the absolute best.”
He will fight for you and do whatever he can to help you
“Mr. James Farmer is a very intelligent and skilled lawyer that knows what he is doing and will go out of his way to help. I am very thankful to have had him as my attorney!! I was facing some very serious charges and with Mr. Farmers unbelievable skills, I was found not guilty on all charges. I would highly recommend Mr. Farmer to anyone who needs legal help. I cannot stress enough that he will fight for you and do whatever he can to help you. Thanks, Mr. James Farmer for all that you have done for me!! I also want to thank Patrick, Gary and his staff for their hard work, kindness, and professionalism.”
Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with
I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.”
Thank you, Mr. Farmer, and may God bless you in your future endeavors.
“You and your team have given my family our son back. No amount can adequately compensate for that gift! I can only hope our heart-felt thank-you and 'God bless you' will somehow offset the imbalance.”
