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 overwhelmingly positive response from his former clients, colleagues, and members of both sides of the bar. A Maryland SuperLawyer, Bob has been recognized in the top one percent of all attorneys in Maryland, and now joins “The Big Dogs from the Small Firm” as yet another superstar trial attorney at The Jaklitsch Law Group. 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!).
