About Joseph

Learn Joseph’s areas of practice.

I grew up in a blue collar family. After being only the 2nd of 13 cousins to graduate college I went to work for the Louisiana and Delta Railroad. Afterwards I went on to work for the Illinois Central/Canadian National Railroad our of Baton Rouge, Geismar, and New Orleans, Louisiana.

Subsequently, I attended Mississippi College School of Law graduating cum laude. Then I opened The Franks Law Firm and have represented injured workers and those wrongfully charged ever since.

HOMERUN
Joey really hit a homerun for me. I was looking at serving a year in jail looking at a DUI 4th, with his help and expertise we got it all the way down to a DUI 1st. I can not thank or praise him enough for his services. Always responded in a timely manner and always was filling me in on what was happening in my case. He also was able to get a DUI for me back in 2014 non-adjudicated even after all these years. Best DUI lawyer in the state hands down.

Really Good Attorney
Joey always tried to help me. When he couldn’t help in a certain area he recommended me to someone who would. I really appreciate his help and knowledgeable advice given to me.

Franks law firm
I received a flyer by mail from Mr. Franks that clearly explained his services, and I hired him for what I needed the only thing I did not like was a lack of correspondence I always had to call and follow up with my case but other than that I felt that mr. franks was honest with me and that I can really appreciate and he settled my case quick

Great Attorney
I met with him and he handled my case expeditiously and efficiently. He was down to earth and didn't make me feel incompetent. Great attorney, knows his stuff. Will definitely hire him again if I ever have any other legal matters.

Joey Franks: The personal injury attorney to call!
Attorney Joey Franks gathered the Doctor's statement & medical records needed to file suit & negotiated a fair & realistic settlement with the insurance company without ever going to court. And my accident was in Louisiana; imagine what he might have collected if all parties had been local for face to face conversations! I'm extremely pleased with the results The Franks Law Firm obtained on my behalf. My thanks to Attorney Joey Franks & his very efficient staff for handling my case in a timely, professional manner. Give 'em call, leave 'em alone & let 'em do their job! You'll be glad you did!

Car accident
Joey helped me with my car accident case and got me a very good settlement. On top of the settlement, he got my medical bills reduced! I highly recommend this attorney if you have been in a car wreck and need an attorney who will fight for you.
