Fighting for the rights of disabled people

TRE Legal Practice is a civil rights law firm focusing on the rights of the blind and other disabled people to access employment, education, government programs, public accommodations, accessible technology and all other aspects of society.

In addition to litigation under both state and federal disability law and anti-discrimination statutes, we frequently work to resolve issues through structured negotiations, advocacy, and targeted assistance with the goal of helping our clients—while also pushing for systemic change that will benefit everyone.

The Americans with Disabilities Act is “powerful in its simplicity. It will ensure that people with disabilities are given the basic guarantees for which they have worked so long and so hard: independence, freedom of choice, control of their lives, the opportunity to blend fully and equally into the rich mosaic of the American mainstream.”

— President George H.W. Bush, July 26, 1990
