Social Security Disability & Personal Injury: (888) 685-7930

Handling Florida Social Security Disability and Personal Injury Cases Since 1989

Our Mission

No matter where you are located in Florida — Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Tampa, Orlando, or beyond — the attorneys at Avard Law fight to get you the Benefits You Deserve for Social Security Disability and Personal Injury. In the past 20 years, that has involved changing the law for the better of our clients. Current disability laws are complex and as unique as each case. We strive to be the model for Social Security Disability and Personal Injury Law.

Social Security Disability Attorneys

Disability Attorneys Who Work for Your Benefit

The denial rate is 66% when someone initially applies for benefits. That is why it’s so important to get an experienced, Board Certified Social Security Disability Attorney to represent you in this work. Carol Avard and Douglas Mohney are both certified by the National Board of Legal Specialty. Let our attorneys fight for you when you cannot fight for yourself. Carol Avard has been practicing Social Security Disability and Personal Injury Law for 31 years. Attorney Avard received her B.A. degree from Harvard University in 1971, and her Juris Doctorate degree in 1980 from the University of N.H. See our Attorneys page for more information about the services Avard Law Offices, P.A. can offer you. At Avard Law Offices, P.A., we practice law with one goal in mind: our clients come first.

Personal Injury Law

Personal Injury Attorneys Who Will Fight For You

Bad things happen to good people, and they shouldn’t have to suffer the monetary costs for it. We will go to trial for your meritorious case because we believe it is the right thing to do. Our appellate attorneys are recognized in their fields and have numerous published and non-published cases. We attend to auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, animal attacks, wrongful death, nursing home abuse, medical malpractice, and many other case types. In addition to fighting for your case, we make sure you receive the best care suited to you. Lack of medical insurance coverage does not necessarily prevent you from receiving treatment. Contact us to learn about what is available to you after an accident. Attorneys at Avard Law Offices, P.A. have represented clients for personal injury claims since 1989. We have obtained six figure settlements on several cases without ever having to go to trial. At Avard Law, we will fight for you until you obtain fair compensation for your injuries.

Immigration Law

Experienced and Multilingual Immigration Attorneys

Immigration law can be incredibly complex and unsettling. Without the right knowledge and credentials, your goals may not be able to be reached. Our seasoned associates at Avard Law make these goals obtainable through proper knowledge of the law and thorough experience. Many of our attorneys are members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). Several of our staff attorneys at Avard Law speak more than one language. We speak French, Spanish, Ukrainian, and Russian. With native speakers from around the world, we meet the linguistic expectations and requirements to manage your immigration case or any other case properly.

Veterans’ Disability

We manage Veterans’ disability compensation and pension claims, aid and attendance claims for assisted living benefits, long-term care planning, and VA health care negligence claims. Four of our six attorneys are VA accredited by the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. In addition, we handle all types of Veterans Disability claims that go before the Board of Veterans Appeals and the U.S. Court of Veterans Appeals. We exceed the expectation of being a Veteran’s Disability attorney, and we use our qualifications and expertise to win your case.

Workers’ Compensation & Long Term Disability

Workers’ Compensation

When workers are injured on the job, most businesses seek to compensate them for their lost wages due to the accident. Unfortunately, some employers fail to properly recompense for their employees, and some will not care at all. At Avard Law, we will work to get you what you are owed. Our lawyers understand the complexities of the compensation claims process and the laws associated. Wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation, and other benefits are all owed to employees due to a work related accident. We will make sure that you will receive what you deserve.

Long Term Disability

Long Term Disability allows workers to receive continued income from insurance after they suffer an injury or medical condition (unrelated to their employment) that prevents them from working for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, many companies are acting in the best interest of profits, not people, and often cheat their claimants on what they may be entitled. At Avard Law, our Long Term Disability attorneys are just as familiar with the procedure as the insurance companies, and will look to get you what you deserve in your time of need.

Employment Discrimination

Employment Law cases based on disability, race, color, age, religion or sex, sexual harassment, and others are cases that we frequently attend to. We also manage cases involving retaliation against an individual for filing a charge of discrimination, participating in an investigation or opposing discriminatory practices. Nearly all of our attorneys practice employment law, and each of our employment attorneys are highly skilled in their areas. To learn more, visit our employment discrimination page.


Resources for Those in Need

Avard Law Offices looks to service the community through a variety of avenues. We provide access to lists of local resources on our site tailored to our most served counties. These lists include homeless shelters, food banks, health systems, support groups, and more. For the most up-to-date and extensive resources we have to offer, as well as other advice on enduring difficult times, take a quick moment to request a free survival guide directly from our offices. Our survival guide is frequently updated by our attorneys and staff for those of us in our community who need assistance.

Community Involvement

In addition to helping you win your case, many members of Avard Law are heavily involved in supporting the many resources throughout our community. Our staff and attorneys volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, the Harry Chapin Food Bank, local clothes drives, and more. Avard Law also provides financial and organizational support for local performing arts organizations such as Classic Chamber Concerts, the Southwest Florida Symphony, and Opera Naples. Some members of our staff, including our head attorney, are local musicians as well!
