The opinions that matter Most

  • 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.

  • Truly cared about my case and how the accident affected me.

    “I have used James Farmer office for two accidents I have been in; both times they were exceptional.”

  • 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.

  • 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.”

  • We received a great outcome and my family was 100% pleased

    “Attorney Farmer helped me and my family through a domestic situation which turned out to be great. His expertise, presentation, and professionalism all worked together and we received a great outcome and my family was 100% pleased. I would highly recommend!”

Pro Bono Representation for Maryland & DC BLM Protesters

Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC

Global protests against the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Department officers continue. Although the four officers involved have been charged, the situation and its surrounding discussions are not over. The Black Lives Matter movement has broadened to include an anti-police brutality movement as well.

In the last few days, more and more peaceful protesters, bystanders, and news reporters have shared their stories and video footage of them being abused by police officers. More than 10,000 protesters have been arrested so far, and the vast majority complain of being arrested despite protesting peacefully and complying with the law. Ironically, the nationwide police reactions to the anti-police brutality protests have only further encouraged the protesters and escalated the exact issue they are protesting.

Peaceful protesters across the country have been arrested and charged with:

  • Unlawful assembly
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Refusing to comply
  • Pedestrian in roadway
  • Curfew violation
  • And more

There are also many emerging stories of protesters being held for 48 hours or more without ever being told why they had been arrested in the first place and never being charged with a crime. This policing strategy is a violation of habeas corpus, the foundational legal concept that prohibits the police from detaining someone for an unreasonable amount of time without charging them for a crime.
