San Jose Disability Discrimination Attorneys
Lawyers for Disabled Workers' Rights in San Francisco
We are San Jose disability discrimination lawyers with a long history of success. As employment law and civil rights lawyers in San Jose for the last several decades, we have been at the forefront of advocacy for disabled workers throughout San Jose and the entire Bay Area. Whether you are employed or are seeking employment and believe your rights have been violated as the result of a disability or perceived disability, attorneys at Jachimowicz Pointer, Attorneys at Law, Inc. are on your side.
Like all people, individuals with disabilities may face many challenges, but finding gainful employment for which they are qualified should not be one of those challenges. Fortunately, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against "qualified individuals with a disability" in the terms and conditions of employment.
If you believe you were wrongfully terminated or not hired because of a disability or perceived disability, you may find that the employer or company at fault is not motivated to assist you. It is important to seek a skilled employment law attorney who will advocate for your full rights under the law.
Our San Jose disability discrimination lawyers and our entire legal team believe that employers who discriminate against qualified individuals should be held accountable for their actions. If an employer or potential employer has violated your rights under the ADA, our experienced California disability discrimination lawyers would like to meet with you and develop a strategy to hold them accountable.
Please contact our San Jose law offices online or call 408-246-5500. Your consultation is free and many cases that we take are on a contingency basis. We only collect fees if we help you obtain compensation.

When most people think of disability issues, they think of reserved parking spaces and ramps. However, disabilities can manifest in a variety of ways that are not always obvious or visible. Additionally, employers sometimes make faulty assumptions about individuals who do not actually have a disability or are no longer suffering from a disability.
Regardless of the nature of your condition, perceived condition, or previous condition, the ADA prohibits employers from discriminating based on a disability or serious medical condition when making decisions about:
- Hiring or firing an employee
- Offering benefits packages
- Making layoff decisions
- Considering promotions
- Retaliating against those who complain about disability discrimination
- Harassing those with disabilities or perceived disabilities
