Attorney Molly Brewer

Molly Brewer is a multi-talented personal injury attorney who joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2021. In addition to being a professor, speaker, and published author, she is a compassionate advocate who fights daily to help protect the rights of injured people throughout North Carolina.

Molly grew up in the Poconos, a self-proclaimed “rule follower” from an early age – a tendency she would tap into when deciding on her career path. She left rural Pennsylvania to attend Moravian University, and in 2006, she moved to Noth Carolina to obtain a Certificate in Paralegal Studies from Duke University.

Molly worked as a litigation paralegal for several years and then decided it was time to put her respect for order and rules to the test, and she enrolled in North Carolina Central University School of Law.

Molly has had many accomplishments at a number of diverse organizations throughout her career, from the District Attorney’s Office to the North Carolina Department of Justice. She’s also worked as an Attorney Researcher for North Carolina State University, as well as a Professor of Agricultural Law for Texas A&M University-Commerce. As a professor, she particularly enjoys introducing legal concepts to undergraduates and explaining how the law intersects with their chosen majors.

Recognizing the Impact She Can Have

Early in her career, Molly handled a case where multiple members of the same family were hit head-on by a negligent driver. Their car was heavily damaged by the crash, and not all family members survived, yet the insurance company immediately tried to settle their claims for pennies. Fortunately, the family decided to seek legal representation.

Molly got to know the family members as she helped build their case, including a child who had to give up some of the things she loved most because of the crash. “It was really impactful to witness how accidents and injuries can destroy people’s lives, and how some insurance companies may try to get away with the bare minimum when people proceed without a lawyer.” Molly saw that she could play a critical role in helping people after they were suddenly injured in accidents.

“We are doing work that truly helps people.”

Molly’s path led her to James Scott Farrin, where she continues to fight for clients who have been injured or harmed through others’ carelessness. She strives to ensure that her clients’ cases settle for what they are worth instead of what some insurance companies may think they can get away with. And the memory of that early case continues to power her resolve. She believes that victims deserve quality representation, an ally against the insurance companies, and the chance to turn things around after an injury.

Teeing It Up and Taking Care of Others

In her downtime, Molly is an avid golfer who plays as often as the weather permits – which is mostly year-round in North Carolina. She also volunteers regularly at a women-led non-profit that serves other women in the community through cleaning, organizing, and offering a fresh start. In addition, Molly supports other nonprofits, such as the Alexander Family YMCA, Rex Healthcare Foundation, and Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas (which united her with one of her two rescue dogs).
