Read our 5-Star Reviews
  • 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.”

  • The staff at the office was very friendly and professional.

    “I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone who is in need of an attorney.”

  • 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.

  • 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!”

  • 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.”

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF), in the United States, about 268,600 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year. It is also estimated that 41,760 women will die from breast cancer this year. If found and treated early, most women can survive this terrible disease, which is why mammogram screenings are critical. This October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so do what you can to spread the word about the importance of mammograms and encourage the women in your life to take the proper steps to detect breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Risk Factors

Anyone can develop breast cancer, but there are some factors that can increase a woman’s risk.

Here are some breast cancer risk factors you should be aware of:

  • Having 2 to 3 alcoholic drinks per day increases the risk of developing breast cancer by 20%
  • Obese women are twice as likely to develop breast cancer
  • Women who partake in regular physical activity reduce their chances of developing cancer by up to 25%
  • Some research indicates that smoking can increase the risk of breast cancer

Although a lot of progress has been made in terms of improved forms of treatment, breast cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women. Although women of any age can develop breast cancer, it is largely found in women 50 years of age and older. Approximately 10% of all new breast cancer cases in the U.S. are detected in women under the age of 45.

The Symptoms of Breast Cancer

Symptoms are not always apparent for women with breast cancer, which is why regular mammograms are critical.

However, some noticeable symptoms include:

  • A lump in the underarm or breast
  • Pain in the breast
  • Change in the shape or size of the breast
  • Nipple discharge, such as blood
