Shareholder Adam S. Chotiner oversees the firm’s ADA Public Access Lawsuit and Compliance practice group.
This group’s practice is focused on litigation and compliance under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (the “ADA”). Over the past 20 years, there has been an explosion in the number of ADA Title III lawsuits being filed, particularly in Florida. Such ADA lawsuits often allege the existence of “physical barriers,” such as inaccessible restrooms or parking lots. A more recent trend is for ADA lawsuits to allege that a company’s website is inaccessible to visually-impaired individuals.
Mr. Chotiner has extensive experience defending claims under Title III of the ADA and assisting businesses with ADA compliance, including assisting clients with onsite inspections, negotiating with the plaintiff’s attorney to resolve matters as early as possible in litigation and making recommendations as to necessary modifications. Mr. Chotiner’s clients include a wide variety of businesses, from “mom and pop” businesses to companies listed on the Fortune 500.
