Over the past two decades, California has experienced an explosion of cases alleging brick and mortar and online businesses are in violation of the American ADA, and Unruh Civil Rights act because their goods and services are inaccessible to those with disabilities. Every year thousands of ADA suits are filed in California state and federal courts, and across the country. Our team of lawyers has defended scores of individual plaintiff and class action lawsuits for a variety of clients across the banking, retail, hospitality, manufacturing, amusement park, and real estate industries. Our depth and breadth of experience means our attorneys are well known to the plaintiff’s bar practicing in this area in several states. Our attorneys are able to accurately evaluate your matter, including an assessment of your potential monetary exposure to help your business better assess its options. We have successfully won summary judgment in these matters and strive to help your company achieve the best outcome in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. Our lawyers work with experts and CASp professionals to assist in evaluating ADA and Unruh claims and providing remediation options if appropriate. The team also offers advice and counsel to clients seeking to establish a defense strategy to implement best practices for avoiding this type of litigation from the start.
