ADA pop quiz

In less than 2 months, on March 15, 2012, new ADA Standards become mandatory. If you can't answer "YES" to each of the following three questions, you may be in trouble.

  1. Do you know what the new ADA Guidelines will require for your hotel, restaurant, or other "place of public accommodation"?
  2. Do you know that there is NO "grandfathering" to escape the most sweeping changes to the ADA Standards in 20 years?
  3. Have you done everything the law requires to bring your property into compliance with the new rules?

Answers . . . Call for a free consultation on ADA defense and compliance issues

If you are unsure about the answers to the first couple of questions, click here for a link to an executive summary of what you need to know.

ADA Defense Lawyer: New ADA regulations kick in soon. Say goodbye to "grandfathering" under the ADA.

And if you are unsure about the answer to question #3, you may want to contact our ADA experts for a free consultation to see if we can help you. It doesn't matter whether you have one small property or on a national portfolio. (See contact information below).

Expert ADA defense is good, but a pro-active compliance program is better!

The ADA is being aggressively enforced by "advocacy groups," private litigants and the Department of Justice (DOJ). To give you an idea of how aggressive the enforcement action is, our team has defended property owners and operators in more than 450 ADA lawsuits, and at this moment we are assisting clients in five DOJ investigations.

When the new ADA requirements go into effect you can count on the fact that private advocacy groups and the government will be making sure you're in full compliance. This is the old story about an ounce of prevention. It is much cheaper and more effective to complete your own ADA compliance plan before you have to respond to lawsuits or government investigations.
