Business Law, Litigation and Real Property Sections Meeting


Navigating the Lion’s Den of ADA Access, Claims and Litigation

Speaker
Celia McGuinness | Derby, McGuinness & Goldsmith, LLP

This one hour virtual program will discuss how to prevent, defend and resolve Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) claims involving public accommodations. The ADA has been the law for 30 years and yet 20% of the NDCA docket are these costly cases. Learn how to advise business and landlord clients to avoid ADA problems and how to litigate for your clients.

Celia McGuinness is a seasoned disability rights trial lawyer who represents plaintiffs and defendants; taught at USF and Hastings; has authored articles in several publications; and litigated cases before the Ninth Circuit and California Court of Appeals. Above all, she takes a practical approach to these cases.

There will be a Q&A session following the presentation.

1.0 CLE will be provided.

We are looking forward to having you join us!
