Sen. Gary Farmer
Senator Farmer represents Florida Senate District 34 in Eastern Broward County.
First elected in 2016, Senator Farmer prides himself in legislating on behalf of all people, not just the powerful few. Protecting public education, providing access to affordable health care, and shoring up our environmental stewardship are just a few of his priorities in the Senate.
Before his election to the Senate, Senator Farmer spent his career fighting for the rights of consumers, fair and just compensation for victims, and the protection of the civil justice system and full access to the court system. He developed an interest in law at an early age when after school he would meet his father, who was attending law school. After following in his father's footsteps and attending the same law school Gary began his legal career with an insurance defense firm where he gained invaluable knowledge and experience in trial law before moving into plaintiff's work.
In addition to his work in the courtroom, Gary has devoted thousands of hours serving as a board member, officer and in 2012-13 as President of the Florida Justice Association, the state's largest and most effective consumer protection organization.
Gary is a member of the Florida Bar, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida. He is AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, and included in their Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. He is a board member of the Broward County Justice Association, and the 2012-13 President of the Florida Justice Association. He is also a member of the American Association for Justice.
