I had a judge tell me one time, 'I used to know everybody who would appear in front of me. We'd have docket days. Then we'd go to lunch together and we actually got to speak and see each other personally,' he said. 'Now half my conferences are done over the telephone, and nearly everything is done electronically.' I feel very much the same way. The human personal contact is almost non-existent, and there's really no way to go back, except for us holdovers who continue to provide that kind of service.

With 45 years of experience dedicated to law, Mr. Farmer brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry, and, in particular, to his area of specialization, family, business, and criminal law, as well as estate planning and automobile negligence. When asked why he decided to pursue a career in law, Mr. Farmer said:
"I was just fascinated with the entire field of study. I debated in high school, and all the way through college. And I had a knack for research and discussion."
Today, Mr. Farmer focuses his practice primarily on business development and family law, but his many years of experience allow him to offer a broad range of legal services which are adaptable to clients’ particular needs. In addition to his wealth of experience, clients benefit from his old-school approach rooted in clear communication and personal relationships. Mr. Farmer's sterling reputation within the legal community and unique ability to be tough but respectful at all times have made him a highly sought-after legal counsel for many of the area’s institutional clients, including the City of Fort Scott, the Union State Bank, Liberty Savings Association, and Mercy Health System of Kansas, Inc., among others.
As a thought-leader in his field, Mr. Farmer has been highly attuned to many changes in the law over the course of his career. Aside from the subtle evolution of the law, he mentions that the biggest change he has witnessed is the loss of human personal contact in the legal profession:
"I had a judge tell me one time, 'I used to know everybody who would appear in front of me. We’d have docket days. Then we’d go to lunch together and we actually got to speak and see each other personally,' he said. 'Now half my conferences are done over the telephone, and nearly everything is done electronically.' I feel very much the same way. The human personal contact is almost non-existent, and there’s really no way to go back, except for us holdovers who continue to provide that kind of service."
