Since moving to the Temple/Belton area in 2010, Annette immediately felt at home in her Central Texas community. Central Texas seemed like a perfect fit for her familiarity with the medical community and her connection with the military, both through her work and her husband’s prior service. That’s why, when her husband retired from the Army, they decided to build on the roots they had established here and raise their family in this community.
Annette has a passion for helping small businesses begin their journey, and grow. Prior to entering the legal profession, Annette pursued a biomedical research track where she lived, trained, and worked in a number of communities with large medical centers, like Mayo Clinic and UT Southwestern at Dallas Medical Center. As an attorney, she started this firm after working for several years as in-house counsel with a global nonprofit that serves military-connected children.
Annette is experienced in a wide range of business matters, from both the legal and management perspective. In addition to advising on general legal topics related to day to day business matters, she assists in drafting, reviewing, and advising on a variety of contract types, to include state and federal government contracts. She is also experienced in intellectual property rights issues, including trademarks and copyrights. This is the area where Annette’s passion truly comes to life.
Although she came to the Temple/Belton area with an interest in helping people and businesses, she now finds herself with a passion that cannot be ignored. In her own words – “I am truly excited to see all the great growth happening around us. It means so much for our community and the families who chose to call this area home, like we did! I am thrilled to use my knowledge and skills to serve the small businesses, their owners, and families that make Temple/Belton and surrounding areas great places to live. This is why I have opened the Annette Farmer Law Firm, PLLC. I look forward to the opportunity to provide friendly, reliable, high-quality legal services in the areas of small business entity formations, contract drafting and review, trademark & copyrights, outside general counsel, and estate planning.”
