DISABILITY RIGHTS ATTORNEYS
The Leigh Law Group attorneys and advocates have a strong reputation of advocating for the rights of individuals with disabilities. Our San Francisco attorneys represent individuals with a broad range of disabilities in both state and federal court. Because of our advocacy, we have secured the rights of others often times without the need for litigation.
ADA/SECTION 504/UNRUH/THE DISABLED PERSONS ACT AND FEHA
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act are two federal laws with broad sweeping protections for individuals with disabilities. California law has similar enactments which include, but are not limited to, Unruh, The Fair Employment Housing Act and the Disabled Persons Act. These laws protect your rights in places of public and private accommodation which include, but are not limited to, the workplace and public schools.
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.
Our attorneys are knowledgeable in vindicating the rights of others using the court system and other administrative processes to obtain remedies in the event you believe you have been discriminated against.
REGIONAL CENTER SERVICES
If you are a regional center recipient or believe that someone you care for should be deemed eligible then the Leigh Law Group attorneys can evaluate your case.
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. Our San Francisco attorneys have extensive experience with obtaining Regional Center services and helping individuals and families navigate the system.
In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) is a state wide 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 IHSS. IHSS 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. Our attorneys are well versed in IHSS appeals.
