  • 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.”

  • 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 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.”

  • 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!”

  • 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.

Trick-or-Treat Safety Tips

If your little ghouls and witches enjoy celebrating Halloween and trick-or-treating, you are probably gearing up for a frightfully good time with them. Before you start helping them choose their costumes or planning out your activities, however, it would be wise to review a few safety precautions first to ensure their trick-or-treating adventures do not turn into a horror story.

Stay Safe on this Spooky Night

Your children probably have a few costume ideas, but it is your duty as their parent to ensure their costume choices will not jeopardize their safety. If possible, try to include some bright or reflective colors, so they are visible to drivers on the road. If bright colors do not fit the color palette for their costume, make sure they carry a glow stick or flashlight. Costumes should also be short enough to prevent tripping accidents.

Here are some other important Halloween safety tips:

  • Children under the age of 12 should never go trick-or-treating without a trusted adult. If your children are mature enough and old enough to trick-or-treat without an adult chaperone, make sure they stay in a group and keep to familiar areas.
  • If your children have cell phones or other devices, tell them to keep their head up while walking. Staring down at a phone while crossing the street is a major safety risk.
  • Stick to well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. You cannot assume all drivers on the road are paying attention or looking out for small children.
  • Before heading out for a night of trick-or-treating with the kids, go over some rules with them. Make sure they understand not to run out into the road or to cross between parked cars. Tell them to only knock on doors with porch lights on and to never enter a home or a car for Halloween treats. Lastly, instruct them to never accept anything that is homemade, such as brownies or cupcakes.
  • Do not let your children eat any candy until they return home. You need to examine their sugary loot, especially if they have any allergies. It might be a little difficult for them to exercise willpower during their quest for candy, but let them know it will be worth the wait.
  • Of course, although you want your children to enjoy their winnings, do not let them overdo it. Prepare a healthy meal for them before they go trick-or-treating, so they are less inclined to binge on candy.
