San Jose Disability Discrimination Lawyers
Attorneys with a Focus on California Disability Discrimination Cases
Our San Jose disability discrimination lawyers know the law, we know your rights and we know how to get results through verdicts or settlements. Because we have been practicing in this area of the law for several decades, we have developed the refined skills necessary to defend your rights if you have been unfairly treated at your workplace due to a disability. You do not have to defend your rights alone.
Like all people, individuals with disabilities may face many challenges, but finding gainful employment for which they are qualified should not be one of them. 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 disability discrimination lawyer who will advocate for your full rights under the law.
We 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 San Jose disability discrimination lawyers are ready to assist you.

Free Consultations, Contingent Fee Basis, and a Record of Success
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. In short, all people should be treated fairly regardless of their physical abilities.
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
