Of all the civil rights laws, those prohibiting discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, housing, places of public accommodation, and programs run by state and local governments and recipients of federal funding are among the most complex and least understood. EBG's Disability Law practice provides exceptional experience in this area of the law. The practice includes experienced litigators who participated in the drafting of regulations and guidances under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Fair Housing Act (FHA), oversaw the enforcement of these laws at the highest levels of the United States Department of Justice and the EEOC, and were asked to address numerous federal, trial and appellate judges on the ADA. These attorneys have advised and/or represented trade associations for major industries, national retailers, hotels, hospitals, sports stadiums, real estate developers, architects, cruise lines, and nursing homes in connection with a variety of cutting edge regulatory and litigation matters arising under the federal and state disability laws. In so doing, these attorneys have made use of their longstanding relationships with the nation's top accessibility consultants and other resources to ensure that every client receives the best and most cost-effective representation.
