Attorneys with experience to defend your rights
JOSHUA L. FARMER, ESQUIRE
After retiring from the US Army in 2009, Mr. Farmer, never one to rest on his laurels, decided to pursue a second career as an advocate. Earning his Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies under the GI Bill at the University of Maryland, Mr. Farmer went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from Concord Law School in 2013, becoming a member of the California State Bar in 2015. While his military career took him all over the world, Mr. Farmer grew up in Texas, and when the time came to decide where to begin his legal career, he settled close to his roots, starting a practice in Lawton, OK, where he currently lives. Since that time, Mr. Farmer has been defending the rights of those who find themselves at a disadvantage when faced with overwhelming financial strains or disabilities. Working in the federal court system, Mr. Farmer is admitted to practice and represents clients in the federal courts of the Western, Eastern, and Northern Districts of Oklahoma and the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas. Mr. Farmer also represents clients in Tribal court throughout Oklahoma. His practice has expanded to include offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. An avid golfer, Mr. Farmer enjoys spending his free time outdoors, either on the links or with his family. His son, Kevin, plays basketball for Cameron University, and his daughter, following in dad’s footsteps, is pursuing her law degree at Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas.
