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 Florida with 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.”
Looking for a social security disability attorney in Cape Coral Florida?
Suffering from a disabling condition can be a detriment to your happiness and rob you of your ability to provide for yourself and your family. Fortunately for the residents of Cape Coral, Florida, people who are not able to work due to a disability have options. You may be eligible for disability benefits administered through the United States Social Security Administration (SSA) depending on your disability, income, and work history. In the alternative, you may be eligible for disability benefits depending on your disability and need, regardless of your income and work history. Such benefits can be a necessary lifeline.
Statistically, the vast majority of Social Security Disability (SSDI/SSD) and SSI claims are denied at the initial claim, and this typically happens regardless of whether or not the claimant is represented by a non-attorney disability advocate or even an actual attorney.
For this reason, the majority of SSD and SSI claims will need to go to a hearing in front of an administrative law judge (ALJ) before a claimant can hope to receive their disability benefits. It is at this level (an ALJ hearing) that having a disability attorney or non-attorney representative (or advocate) can really help win a claim. While a disability attorney or non-attorney representative can’t guarantee that a claimant will be awarded Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, a Social Security lawyer can ensure that a case will be handled properly prior to your hearing.
Two of the many benefits Avard Law provides to our clients are our knowledge and understanding of the Social Security application and appeals process, and our ability to develop and present medical evidence in support of your claim. Our principal attorney, Carol Avard, is an experienced trial attorney and the NOSSCR Board of Directors Eleventh Circuit Representative. Further, we are trained in SSA practices and procedures, and we understand the language that the SSA recognizes when evaluating a claim for disability benefits.
Need help with a personal injury case in Cape Coral?
Personal injury involves injury to an individual. This area of law allows a person who has been injured to sue in a private action, referred to as a “civil action” and also known in the legal community as a “tort action”. A “tort” is a wrong against a person. Any accident or injury against a person can constitute a tort – whether it be in a car accident, the use of a product, or the negligence of a professional.
Consulting experienced Cape Coral personal injury attorneys like those of Avard Law Offices can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court. If a loved one is killed in an accident or through negligence, the surviving family members would pursue wrongful death litigation, which is similar but separate from personal injury litigation. Personal injury can require attorneys from a personal injury-focused law firm to develop a strong case.
At Avard Law, we have served many people from Cape Coral and abroad by helping them win their cases in social security disability, personal injury, long term disability, and more. Avard Law has two of the seven attorneys in the state who are certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (Carol Avard and Doug Mohney) and as such, you can rest assured that our attorneys meet and exceed the qualifications and credentials you need to win.
We have experience in Social Security Disability Claims, Personal Injury, Immigration, Medical Malpractice, Veterans Disability, Municipal Employees Disability Claims and more.
Supreme Court Justice Thanks Disability Lawyers at Avard Law
I have practiced law 57 years, 37 as an appellate judge, 14 on the Iowa Supreme Court. The legal brief that you sent to me, representing my daughter, is among the very best I have ever read. Thank you for your great work as superb lawyers."

Former Law Enforcement Officer Reviews Attorneys at Avard Law
"I was in Law Enforcement for 23 years and have seen numerous law firms perform in criminal and civil cases. After becoming unexpectedly disabled I was placed in a position where I now needed representation for my Social Security Disability case. After asking around several people recommended the Avard law firm, they all said they were a good firm. Those recommendations of Avard being a good firm was a severe understatement, they are an outstanding firm."
