Collins Law Office is committed to representing clients with disability issues
ranging from physical to mental to chronic illness disabilities. Key federal statutes include the Rehabilitation Act
of 1973-- specifically section 504 for K-12 students, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Amercians with
Disabilities Act Amendments of 2008. These amendments are particularly important in extending and ensuring the rights
of those with chronic or terminal illnesses and where disabling conditions significantly impair a major life function on some
days but not others due to the nature of the illness, condition or disability, federal amendments now ensure protections identical
to those in the original Americans with Disabilities Act. These conditions can include certain chronic illnesses, terminal
illnesses, traumatic brain injuries, etc.
While disability rights can often overlap with employment law issues, disability rights can also
be implicated by housing or state and federal benefits decisions, working conditions, quality of life circumstances, and access
to places and professions, and educational accommodations. Collins Law Office can work to help you identify and obtain
proper services, protections, mediations, and legal actions including injunctions or litigation if necessary.
