Joel A. Franklin


After years of practice, Joel knew it was time to start his own firm. His mission is simple—put the client first. Over the years of practice, Joel would hear time and time again from potential clients they had an attorney they could not reach, who would not communicate with them, who in essence, dismissed them. It seemed that attorneys were more about the money and less about the client. That’s NOT right. Joel decided to make a change for himself and for his future clients. He decided what should be self -evident—put the client first. There are obvious reasons:

a1.)aClients are the life blood of any business, it is important to maintain a healthy client relationship because without that relationship, a business will fail.
2.)aThe client is in a vulnerable position.

She does not know what to expect, she places trust in her attorney to guide her and explain the case to her. That’s why Joel adopted the slogan—“It’s About YOU!” If you have been injured through no fault of your own, call Joel and talk to him and get an understanding of what the road ahead will look like should you decide to pursue a claim or file a lawsuit.
