Domestic Violence/OOP

Our firm is well-versed in all areas of family law, including more troublesome aspects such as domestic violence. Spouses in abusive situations should unquestionably remove themselves and any children from the harmful environment and immediately call for the intervention of legal authorities. The Law Offices of Andrew Farmer can assist with restraining orders (orders of protection, or OOP), restrictions on visitation and more, including litigation in court for any injuries sustained from domestic violence. In such tremendously stressful circumstances, it's a comfort to know you can have confidence in our compassionate and experienced legal counsel.

Juvenile Law

Cases involving the delinquency of a minor or D&N action (“Dependency and Neglect”) typically involve slow-moving local and state authorities, protective service workers and court-appointed counsel. What many parents don't know is that the hiring of an independent counsel is a perfectly viable (and often more expedient) option. If you are the parent of a troubled child or teenager and illegal behavior is involved (for example, you suspect your ex-spouse is being abusive or neglectful to the child), The Law Offices of Andrew Farmer can help. Trust your instincts and don't wait – call us today.
