Larry Franklin

What most clients notice first about Larry is his genuine concern for their situation.  He has a talent for being able to quickly understand their needs and explain their options clearly and concisely.


Prior to earning his Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville School of Law, Larry graduated first in aptitude, with honors, from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. He also attended the Submarine School in Groton, Connecticut; the U.S. Naval War College and the U.S. Army War College. He served his country for 36 years and is a retired Two-Star Navy Admiral.


Today, Larry brings his work ethic, his sense of honor and duty, his commitment to justice and his love of the law to assist people who have been injured and need help, so they can heal.


When Larry isn’t working, he likes to travel, shop, spend money on other people and spoil his employees.  He also enjoys fine dining and exercising.
