Whitfield, Bryson & Mason has expanded its practice areas into family, criminal, and social security law.
The expansion of the firm’s Kentucky office practice is a natural outgrowth of WBM’s personal injury work, said partner John C. Whitfield. “Whenever you have a personal injury case, you develop a close relationship with the individual as well as the family,” he explained, saying those families inevitably will be dealing with other legal issues.
“The hiring this past year of two new attorneys, Caroline Ramsey Taylor and Natasha Camenisch Farmer, provides us with the staffing we need to handle those kinds of cases,” Whitfield said.
Taylor received her law degree from University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and is admitted to practice in Florida and Kentucky.
Farmer, who holds a law degree from the University of Kentucky College of Law, is a member of the Kentucky Justice Association, American Association for Justice, and the Kentucky Bar Association. She is also vice president of the Hopkins County Bar.
Both women said they are happy to be part of the expansion, with Farmer noting that her previous work as a staff attorney to the Honorable James C. Brantley of the Hopkins Circuit Court gave her the opportunity to see hardships that people experience during the law. “I’m hopeful that through this experience I will be able to help others through difficult times by my practice in both criminal defense and family law,” she said.
Said Taylor: “As a firm that’s primarily focused on helping others during difficult times, we felt compelled to expand into criminal defense and family law. Through these avenues we will be able to better assist the citizens of Kentucky.”
