ADA Compliance and Defense

Klinedinst’s ADA Compliance and Defense attorneys regularly defend and successfully resolve accessibility claims brought against our clients under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Unruh Civil Rights Act, and other federal and state anti-discrimination statutes. Our attorneys are well-versed in defending against physical access/barrier claims in both state and federal courts and know how to maximize the legal protections available to clients already in compliance with federal and state accessibility laws or clients willing to take swift action to ensure compliance.

Klinedinst recognizes that a pro-active approach can eliminate or significantly reduce future litigation expenditures so that our clients can focus on growing and succeeding in their businesses. Our attorneys work closely with clients and accessibility experts to craft legally compliant policies and procedures and ensure that future allegations of inaccessibility are avoided to the maximum extent possible.

Klinedinst’s attorneys are also experienced in defending against more nuanced and complex accessibility claims alleging denial of meaningful access to recreational activities, sporting events, business services, and websites. Such claims often involve cutting edge legal issues, defenses, and questions of first impression. Klinedinst’s ADA Compliance and Defense Group has the skill set and experience to not only tackle these new and evolving issues, but help you defend and protect your business. Representative actions that Klinedinst attorneys have litigated or are currently litigating include:

  • Defending against allegations of physical inaccessibility in violation of the ADA and California law with respect to businesses’ ramps, parking, and signage; and,
