||Deeb Blum Murphy Frishberg & Markovich has unique experience in defending companies and workplaces from claims by individuals and advocate groups based upon the Americans With Disabilities Act and its guidelines (ADAAG). We have successfully defended and tried to verdict many of these cases in various federal and state jurisdictions.
Deeb Blum Murphy Frishberg & Markovich has also negotiated many Consent Decrees and settlements to facilitate changes required by the Act. These agreements (to remove barriers or to create access) are settled with generous time periods to allow our client ample time to budget and satisfy ADAAG requirements without adverse impact on the business' long-term viability.
Individual stores and multi-unit retail outlets are subject to the ADAAG standards that control access to these public places. Companies that serve the general public in any retail fashion are at risk of an unexpected lawsuit from a disabled individual or advocacy group. Ignorance or lack of intent of the building owner is not a valid defense to these matters. Often, even design professionals are unaware that their building project does not comply with federal standards. Deeb Blum Murphy Frishberg & Markovich has been successful in not only correcting the issues but, in some cases, going back to design professionals or suppliers of allegedly ADA-compliant items and negotiating cost-sharing of renovation expense required by the ADA and ADAAG.
The partners and associates of Deeb Blum Murphy Frishberg & Markovich are recognized as experts in ADAAG compliance. We have visited professional design groups and individual companies to deliver talks about these issues and provide recommendations on proactively correcting problems and avoiding further litigation costs and expenses.
