ADA and FHA Consulting and Defense


Businesses of all kinds are under attack by plaintiffs exploiting the  Americans with Disabilities Act, Fair Housing Act and other disability rights laws as a means to enrich attorneys while doing little or nothing for the disabled. We represent national multi-family and single family developers as well as a wide array of local restaurants, shops, shopping centers and other public accommodations who are unfairly targeted as well as consulting directly with clients on accessibility issues. Our blog, Accessibility Defense is a nationally recognized resource for attorneys and business owners hoping to avoid or needing to defend such lawsuits. We provide frequent updates on issues of importance to businesses faced with ADA and FHA lawsuits along with free webinars that provide an in depth look at the most current and important issues in this rapidly developing field of law.

If you have questions about the ADA and FHA you may want to consult the Accessibility Defense Frequently Asked Questions.
