Knowledge is Empowering Educating Yourself about ADA Accessibility

Every kind of business is vulnerable to ADA Lawsuits. No business that offers goods or services to the public, is immune. Therefore business owners, property owners, property managers, franchisees, franchisors, lessees, lessors & of course, the professionals that one relies on for advice, support or representation, need to be informed about accessibility for the disabled & the ADA.
