Disability

Disability We will advocate for the rights of individuals with disabilities. Our on-staff attorneys will represent individuals with a broad range of disabilities in both state and federal courts. Our goal is to secure the rights of the disabled without the need for litigation. We are prepared to work on cases involving, but not limited to: ADA/SECTION 504/UNRUH/THE DISABLED PERSONS ACT AND FEHA It is unlawful and illegal to discriminate against a person with disability in places of public accommodation and in places of employment. The form of discrimination can be a failure to accommodate, failing to provide access, failing to engage in the interactive process in order to accommodate and placing unreasonable demands on individuals with disabilities. These rights impact individuals with physical, emotional and mental disabilities. REGIONAL CENTER SERVICES We can assist Regional Center recipients. Regional Center serves individuals with developmental disabilities and their families from infancy through adulthood. If a Regional Center has denied services, a timely request for a fair hearing is required. IN-HOME CARE-GIVERS / IHC In-Home Care-Givers is a statewide program that provides personal care and domestic services to persons who are aged, blind or disabled and who live in their own homes. IHSS is provided to those who otherwise might be placed in an out-of-home care facility but who can safely remain in their own home if IHSS services are received. To be eligible, you must be over 65 years of age, or disabled, or blind. Disabled children are also eligible for in-home care. IHC is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities. If you are challenging a reduction in hours or a termination of services, you must request a fair hearing within the 10 days, before the notice of action is effective, in order to continue receiving all your hours until the hearing is over. Having legal counsel can help you effectively advocate for yourself or for the person you are caring for.
