Welcome to our Disability Rights law firm.
With over 50 years of combined legal experience, attorneys Paul Rein and Aaron Clefton specialize in representing physically disabled persons who have suffered discrimination on the basis of a physical disability, including mobility impaired persons that use wheelchairs or other assistive devices.
Most of our cases involve discrimination that arise from disabled persons encountering barriers to accessing public places that deny them full and equal access to public accommodations, including hotels, sports arenas, major live theatres, movie theatres, and restaurants.
Our goal is eradication of discrimination on the basis of disability for all disabled people and our clients in particular. We represent disabled people to vindicate their civil rights as disabled persons, and to improve disabled access for the public at large by enforcing the Americans with Disabilities Act and similar California State laws.
We also handled intentional discrimination cases where individuals assisted by service animals were prohibited from using public facilities, or denied access for having disfiguring facial scarring, or used wheelchairs in businesses concerned about the wheelchair “scratching furniture.” (See “About Us” for more details.) We have also obtained major access improvements at multiple California courthouses, City Halls, colleges and universities.
We represent disabled persons as individuals solely on a contingency fee basis, and take no portion of our clients’ damages as fees. We do not require them to pay any litigation expenses or costs. Our attorney fees and costs are obtained on a statutory basis from the defendants only, by judgment, or by settlement, and only if we win the case. Our clients are not responsible to pay anything involving the costs of their case, or attorney fees.
We have assisted persons with mobility and visual disabilities.
We do not handle cases involving airline services.
We only handle cases in California – and preferably in Northern California.
When we accept cases in Central or Southern California, we handle them in association with experienced Disability Access Rights attorneys, whose offices are located in Los Angeles.
