Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)

Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act requires places of public accommodation to ensure equal accessibility to individuals with disabilities.  Our lawyers have extensive experience helping business owners and operators in achieving and maintaining compliance under the Americans with Disabilities Act and applicable state and local disability access laws.  Some of the most common accessibility issues our clients face include how to craft company policies addressed at providing effective service for customers requiring accommodations and how to mitigate risk with respect to architectural barriers in public facilities.  In recent years, there has been a marked increase in new types of accessibility claims, including website accessibility litigation brought by blind and visually-impaired Internet users alleging noncompliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.  Business owners today are under ever-increasing scrutiny with regard to ADA compliance.  Our team is committed to guiding our clients through compliance challenges.  From helping our clients assess exposure to defending single plaintiff and class action lawsuits, our goal is to offer our clients the most expedient and efficient guidance and representation.  We focus first on preventative measures and provide actionable advice on identifying and eliminating accessibility barriers.  When the necessity for litigation arises, our attorneys are skilled at aggressive advocacy and are adept at facilitating dispute resolution.
