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 the Farmer & Klopfer if you wish to learn more or would like to get started creating your estate plan.

The opinions that matter Most

Read our 5-Star Reviews
  • 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!”

  • A wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense

    Mr. Farmer and his team were impressive through their work effort and detailed approach in every phase the Civil Court Personal Injury case. They also were responsive to any questions/concerns, supportive and communicated well through out the process. In the end, a satisfactory settlement was achieved. Mr. Farmer would be a wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense.

  • A family member was in a bad situation and they resolved it with ZERO drama.

    “Don’t mess around when it’s your money on the line. Go with these guys if you want excellent, competent attorneys.”

  • 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.”

  • Could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem

    We could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem. James Farmer and Melvin Allen were very knowledgeable, confident and successful in handling our case. I will definitely be referring this Law Firm to others.
