Matthew Farr Baltimore, Maryland

EDUCATION:

Mr. Farr’s legal career began during his Sophmore year of College at Salisbury University after spending a year swimming competitively at the Collegiate level.  It was after this year of swimming that he decided to focus his College experience on education rather than sports.   During his sophomore year Mr. Farr devoted a semester interning with an attorney in private practice who focused on Criminal Law.  Spending a semester with this attorney cemented Matt’s desire to become an Attorney at Law.  Upon graduation from Salisbury University, Magna Cum Laude, with a degree in Philosophy and a minor in Political Science, Mr. Farr enrolled at the University of Baltimore School of law.

While at the University of Baltimore, Mr. Farr continued to round out his legal studies, interning with two different Circuit Court Judges in Maryland. First, with the Honorable Judge Eschenburg of the Circuit Court or Worcester County, and the second with the Honorable Judge Themelis of the Circuit Court for Baltimore city.

During his third and final year at the University Of Baltimore Law School, Mr. Farr began working as Law Clerk for the prominent Baltimore law firm of Cohen & Dwin, serving the various needs of the firm.  Mr. Farr held this position for one year until taking the Maryland Bar Exam in July of 2009.

While waiting to hear his results from the Bar Exam, Mr. Farr traveled back to Maryland’s Eastern Shore where he began an internship with the Office of the State’s Attorney in Worcester County, learning the “playbook” of the prosecutorial side of Maryland’s Criminal Practice. After learning of his success with the Bar Exam, he then returned to Baltimore and once again joined the Law Firm of Cohen & Dwin, this time as a practicing attorney.

Additionally, Mr. Farr is active with the “Dachsund Rescue of North America” and constantly aids this enterprise by fostering abandoned dogs.  By fostering he is able to bridge the gap from a state of homelessness to a “forever home” for these animals.  Please feel free to discuss this, or if you are interested in becoming a “foster” do not hesitate to email.
