January 25, 2017 | Jacob Bob Farley is a fearless advocate for people injured due to the negligence of others. He is a seasoned and aggressive trial lawyer whose experience of representing clients on both sides of injury cases gives him a unique perspective (and some might say an unfair advantage). Simply put, he has the defense playbook. His experience continues to be a tremendous asset to his medical malpractice and personal injury clients. His renewed focus on representing victims of negligence has been met with an overwhelming positive response from his former clients, colleagues, and members of both sides of the bar. A Maryland and DC SuperLawyer, Bob has been recognized in the top one percent of all attorneys in Maryland. In addition, he has been named by the National Trial Lawyers’ Association as a Top 100 Civil Plaintiffs Trial Lawyer – Maryland in 2017. He has also received the Avvo.com Client’s Choice Award. Bob began his career in 1986 after serving a clerkship to the Honorable James F. Couch, Jr., of the Court of Appeals of Maryland. He then began his private practice as a medical malpractice and personal injury defense attorney. For more than three decades, Bob has handled many hundreds of personal injury and medical malpractice cases, and has tried over 125 jury trials to verdict as lead counsel in Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia and all state and federal courts in those jurisdictions. Raised in Maryland, Bob is a graduate of Loyola University of Maryland and the University of Baltimore School of Law. In his free time, Bob enjoys spending time with his kids, golfing, riding his Harley and “Rocking the Red” (Go Caps!).
