Kathy Farmer started with the firm as a temporary employee back in 2006 to work with Ben Locklar on Vioxx cases and came back as a temp in September, 2007. She then worked with Ted Meadows on the new pain pump cases. Kathy was hired this past February as a full-time Legal Assistant for Ted Meadows in the Mass Torts Section and now works on the pain pump cases, managing the day-to-day operation of screening cases, and then following the progress of those cases that are filed in court.
Kathy is originally from a small town in the Appalachian mountains of Southeastern Kentucky, where her parents continue to live. Her mother is the Bookmobile librarian in her home county and her father is a retired consultant geologist who specialized in oil. She has three brothers, all of whom are engineers and who live in Western Kentucky. Kathy’s husband, Robb Farmer, was a practicing lawyer in Lexington, Kentucky, when they married five years ago. He is now a law school law librarian at Jones School of Law, which is what brought the couple to Montgomery. They had been living in Phoenix, Arizona prior to coming to Montgomery, and Kathy says “it’s so good to be back in the land of grits and sweet tea!”
Kathy graduated with a double-major B.S. in Computer Information Systems and English from Cumberland College, a small, Southern Baptist college, in Williamsburg, Kentucky. It is now a larger university known as the University of the Cumberlands. Kathy had originally planned to be a computer programmer upon graduation but was later offered a job as legal secretary and that began what she describes as her “love of the law.” Kathy is currently taking evening classes at Jones School of Law as her schedule will permit. She also loves to read and travel. Kathy is a very good employee – who enjoys her work – and we are fortunate to have her with us.
