Attorney Jeremy S. Maddox (Partner)
Attorney Jeremy Maddox joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2011. He is a Partner and a leader in the firm with a passion for helping individuals stand up for their rights against large insurance companies.
Both of Jeremy’s parents were in the military, and they created a supportive family unit for him and his two sisters as they moved across the U.S. (to five states), and even to Australia, to serve the country. Family bonds remain strong today, and Jeremy considers himself fortunate to have family in both the greater Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham areas.
Initially interested in engineering, Jeremy went to George Mason University in Virginia and earned his B.A. in Information Systems and Operations Management. While there, he took a business law class that altered his career direction and steered him towards Elon University School of Law, where he earned his J.D. in 2011.
Before coming to the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, Jeremy worked as a law clerk, where he assisted employees with labor and employment law cases. He also provided pro bono legal assistance with Legal Aid of North Carolina through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. This experience gave him an excellent opportunity to assist clients with a wide variety of matters.
One of Jeremy’s first experiences with the firm was working on the historic Black farmers case. As a managing attorney, Jeremy helped James Scott Farrin lead a team of firms to obtain a $1.25 billion settlement designed to give 15,700+ Black farmers long-awaited compensation after years of discrimination by the USDA.3 Jeremy took pride in advocating for the farmers – as he does when fighting for justice for his clients today.
Firm founder James Farrin recalls first recognizing Jeremy’s unflagging dedication and strong work ethic when he was working on the Black farmers case. “He is a relentless person who works and works and works. If there’s a goal, he wants to hit it – and then some. You can give him any challenge, and he’ll try to find a way to overcome it.”
In 2014, James put those words to the test and charged Jeremy with opening a new Charlotte office location for the firm. Jeremy passed this test, and many others since, and he is now a firm Partner and co-lead of the Personal Injury team.
Jeremy is respected for his integrity, work ethic, and experience. He was named to the “Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch”4 list by Best Lawyers in America in 2021, the “Legal Elite”4 list by Business North Carolina in 2021, the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” 4 list by The National Trial Lawyers from 2020-2023, and the “Top 40 Under 40”4 list by The National Trial Lawyers in 2021.
Always striving to deepen his understanding of how the law can help others and contribute to the legal field’s development, Jeremy is a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, as well as the North Carolina Bar Association, the 26th Judicial District Bar Association, and the Mecklenburg County Bar Association.
Jeremy and his wife live in Charlotte with their two daughters and three pets. His pastimes include golf, watching sports, and attending his girls’ many dance and soccer activities. He also honors his many active and retired military family members by volunteering with the USO.
