Tiverton Disability Discrimination Information

Have You Been Discriminated Against Because of a Disability?

If you have been discriminated against because of a disability, it is important to talk to a Tiverton disability discrimination attorney who can help you understand and decide the merits of your case. Disability discrimination is a serious offense and a skilled attorney can help.

Disability Discrimination Overview

Disability discrimination occurs when an individual qualified under the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Rehabilitation Act is treated unfavorably because of their disability. Federal Law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to their employees with disabilities and the law even protects people from discrimination based upon their relationship with a disabled person. A disability discrimination attorney can inform you of the laws relevant to you.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
