Disability Rights

Leigh Law Group attorneys and advocates have a strong reputation for 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 courts. Because of our advocacy, we have secured the rights of others often without the need for litigation.

We are prepared to help individuals with disabilities in a variety of cases, as listed below.

ADA/Section 504/The Unruh Civil Rights Act/The Disabled Persons Act And FEHA

It is illegal to discriminate against people with disabilities in places of public accommodation and places of employment. Discrimination can take the form of failing to accommodate, failing to provide access, failing to engage in the interactive process to accommodate and placing unreasonable demands on individuals with disabilities. These rights impact individuals with physical, emotional and mental disabilities.

Our California lawyers are knowledgeable in vindicating the rights of others using the court system and other administrative processes to obtain remedies if you believe you have been discriminated against.

Regional Center Services

If you are a regional center services recipient or believe that someone you care for should be deemed eligible, Leigh Law Group attorneys can evaluate your case.

Regional centers serve 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 obtaining regional center services and helping individuals and families navigate the system.

IHSS Programs

In-home support services (IHSS) allow individuals with impairments or disabilities or individuals over 65 to receive care in the comfort of their own homes. IHSS programs provide many benefits, including:

  • Cleaning services
  • Cooking assistance
  • Supervision
  • Personal care aides

If you are challenging a reduction in hours or termination of services, you must request a fair hearing within 10 days, before the notice of action is effective, 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.
