We Are Available to Answer Your Questions & Address Your Concerns

No one likes to think about the possibility of incapacitation or a time when they will no longer be around. However, taking proper steps to ensure that your loved ones and assets are protected is incredibly important. In the event that a person in Maryland dies without a will, his or her property will be distributed to surviving family members or the state according to state laws.

Your life’s work and the legacy you have built deserve to be protected. Your loved ones deserve to be looked after. Establishing a solid estate plan ensures this will be the case. Reach out to the Waldorf estate planning lawyer at Farmer & Klopfer if you wish to learn more or would like to get started creating your estate plan.

  • 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.”

  • Nothing short of miraculous

    “Mr. Farmer and his associates go the EXTRA mile for all their clients! It's nice to feel safe at the hands of your attorney and get a great outcome! Every experience I've personally had, as well as watched, has been nothing short of miraculous!! Farmer and staff are who you want on your side!!!”

  • Thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning

    “From the initial consultation, I knew I needed James Farmer and his team on my side. He was thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning, prior to even hiring his firm. Once I officially hired his firm, he and his colleague Mr. Melvin Allen moved to strategically place me in the best position possible. They supported me throughout the process by making sure I understood what was happening and I felt extremely grateful to have them on my side! Long story short, my case was successfully completed with a favorable outcome! An outcome I couldn’t even imagine was possible but Mr. Allen’s expertise, strategy, and courtroom presence made it all possible! My wife and I are forever grateful and will always look to this firm on any future needs and you should, too!”

  • 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.”
