Carol Avard and Douglas Mohney are Board Certified Social Security Disability Attorneys, National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBLSC). We are the ONLY law firm in the State of Florida that employs TWO board certified Social Security Disability Attorneys. Why is it important to hire certified Social Security Disability Attorneys? According to the NBLSC:
“Certificate holders undergo a thorough screening of their credentials, including: documentation of their experience, judicial and peer references, an exam, and they must report all disciplinary matters brought before any official body, whether public or private, for scrutiny by the NBLSC Standards Committee.”

Immigration law can be incredibly complex and unsettling. We have a lot of experience and we can help. Many of our attorneys are members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).

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.

When workers are injured on the job, most businesses seek to compensate them for their lost wages due to an accident. Unfortunately, some employers fail to properly do this for their employees, and some will do nothing at all. At Avard Law, we will work to get you what you are owed. Our lawyers understand the complexities of the 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 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 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 is highly skilled in those areas. To learn more, visit our employment discrimination page.
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.
