If you are unable to work as a result of a disabling condition, you likely have many questions and anxieties. How will you manage to pay your bills? What will happen to your family? The good news is that programs are available for people in your situation and a knowledgeable attorney can help you navigate the process.

I am Carla D. Franklin, a Gainesville disability lawyer who has been representing people in Florida for over 30 years. Whether you are considering filing a claim, have already been denied benefits and need help with an appeal, or you are preparing for a hearing, you can benefit from my extensive experience and one-on-one service.

Full-Service Disability Representation In North Central Florida


I work exclusively on contingency in this area of my practice, which concentrates on helping Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claimants understand the process for securing benefits. This means I do not collect any payment until you collect the benefits you need.

Because I have cultivated a comprehensive understanding of both these areas of law, I am fully prepared to mediate, negotiate, arbitrate or litigate to work toward an optimal outcome. Unlike general practitioners who devote a small portion of their practice to these issues or "advocates" who are not accountable to the bar, I have the experience to understand all options and legal issues at hand in these complex cases.
