Disability Law

Disability law is an area of the law that protects individuals with disabilities from discrimination in a variety of contexts: employment, housing, benefits, and more. 

Griffin Alexander, P.C. works to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities, as the preservation of Civil Rights is a cornerstone of the legal system. The firm has litigated claims under the Federal Fair Housing Amendments Act, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The firm has also assisted nonprofit agencies in serving those entrusted to their care. Disability law is an emerging area of the law that protects individuals with disabilities from discrimination.

At Griffin Alexander, P.C., our experienced disability attorneys work tirelessly to protect the rights and entitlements of individuals with disabilities.  We take great pride in our ongoing work in this area — the preservation of Civil Rights is a cornerstone of the legal system in the United States, and we believe that effective advocacy in this context plays a crucial role in the maintenance of justice in our society. 

How Our Disability Attorneys Can Help

Our attorneys routinely assist property owners, community associations, developers, and other clients (who may be concerned about compliance with applicable regulations) in navigating the complex set of local, state, and federal regulations relating to construction and access requirements for rights of individuals with disabilities.  At Griffin Alexander, P.C., we are especially well-acquainted with disputes centered around requests for reasonable accommodations and modifications through experiences in practicing landlord/tenant law and community association law.  We have litigated, when necessary for both plaintiffs and defendants.

Disability law is rather complex, and for this reason, it’s important to work with a team of attorneys who are capable of providing sophisticated representation in matters that are nuanced.  Reasonable accommodation disputes, for example, require a thorough assessment of whether the accommodation at issue would constitute an undue hardship, which will almost certainly involve coordination with experts who can provide supportive testimony. 

In litigating a disability-related lawsuit, success will depend on a variety of factors, including the jurors’ ability to sympathize.  Most litigation — in disability-related lawsuits and otherwise — does not actually proceed to trial, but rather is resolved through settlement.

At Griffin Alexander, P.C., our legal team is comprised of battled-tested litigators who are willing to take a case to trial when necessary to effectively serve our client’s interests.  We have successfully tried numerous cases to verdict, and as such, opposing counsel is more inclined to negotiate fairly and come to a reasonable settlement.  Our attorneys assist clients in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

Securing a favorable settlement is ideal in many situations, as it avoids the time, publicity, hassle, expense, and uncertainty of trial.  Still, despite the fact that settlement can be an excellent option, negotiating a settlement does not always result in a favorable outcome. 

Our firm has both broad and significantly in-depth experience in handling claims on behalf of disabled individuals, having litigated claims brought under the Federal Fair Housing Amendments Act, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and the Americans with Disabilities Act.  We have also assisted nonprofit agencies in serving those who have been entrusted to their care.
