ADA Litigation & Lawsuit Defense
If you own commercial property or operate a business in California
If you own commercial property or operate a business in California, you need to know your obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). No matter what industry you’re in or service you provide, if you have customers, clients, a place of business, or even just a website, you likely operate a “public accommodation” and have to ensure that the business complies with the extensive and complex requirements of the ADA, as well as corresponding state laws.
Failure to comply with the ADA can expose you to costly litigation and significant liability.
We help businesses and properties in the entire State of California including Sacramento, Folsom, Modesto, San Francisco, San Jose, Fresno, Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego, and more.
Avoiding ADA Lawsuits
As an experienced ADA litigation defense attorney, I am familiar with the methods and techniques to help businesses and property owners avoid being the target of an ADA accessibility lawsuit. Recent legislation, including Senate Bill 269, which became law in 2016, provide potential defendants with more options if they choose to take proactive steps to improve disabled access to their business or property. For more information please call our office number in your area.
Managing ADA Lawsuits
Accessibility lawsuits against businesses are filed with alarming frequency. A few opportunistic plaintiffs and attorneys file the overwhelming majority of ADA lawsuits. Serial ADA litigants seek out businesses to sue because the law allows them to recover significant damages, and they can recoup their attorney’s fees and costs from the property and/or business owner as well.
In defending an ADA access lawsuit, I utilize defense strategies that challenge the substance of the allegations and assert all available defenses, while also seeking avenues of resolution that can resolve disputes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
Frequently, the earlier a case is accurately evaluated, the sooner the case can be resolved. Early and aggressive investigation and a focus on minimizing a plaintiff’s recovery can limit the amount of time, effort and money required to resolve a case. I apply my extensive knowledge and experience to achieve the best possible result for my clients. Hundreds of California property owners and businesses have benefited from my efforts for more than fifteen years.
