Putting The Client First
the experience of Joel A. Franklin
Joel’s legal career started at the Louisville Metro Public Defender’s Office wherein he represented individuals charged with misdemeanors and felonies. In addition to representing adults with criminal charges, he represented juvenile defendants charged with either misdemeanors or felonies as well as status offenses. He also represented individuals in family court for child support issues.
After leaving the world of criminal law, Joel went out to a firm that represented civil plaintiffs. He worked with individuals who suffered from medical negligence at the hands of doctors and hospitals. He also represented elderly individuals who were harmed by nursing homes. Joel also represented the everyday commuter who was severely injured from car wrecks. Last, Joel represented individuals in premises liability claims, claims involving property owners failing to maintain a safe premises that resulted in the harm to an innocent person.
At that same firm, Joel briefly switched hats and worked on the civil defense side of the firm. He defended general negligence claims, construction claims, and car wreck cases. Knowing his heart wasn’t in it, he went back representing the everyday person and not the big insurance companies.
Knowing that Joel had a vision of how a client should be treated, he eventually started Franklin Injury Law, PLLC. He had one goal in mind—put the client first. That’s why he came up with the slogan, “It’s about you.” It truly is. You entrust him to represent your needs and to push back against the faceless corporations that step on the little guy. Joel wants to be your shield and your sword. He wants to represent you and make things right, to make you whole, because after all— It’s about you.
