ADA Compliance Experts Educate Attorneys Representing Small Business Owners

Fulfilling its mission to respond to the legal needs of communities, BASF’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service amassed a remarkable panel of city officials and legal experts on ADA law – particularly as applied to small businesses – as part of a training and recruitment effort to form a new ADA/small business panel. Supervisor Carmen Chu notified LRIS of a rapidly growing need for legal expertise on ADA law in San Francisco’s large community of small businesses; LRIS met the need.

Members of this new panel of lawyers will participate with merchant associations in workshops offered throughout the city over the course of the summer. Businesses needing advise and representation on ADA accessibility requirements and/or lawsuits can call LRIS at 415-989-1616. Our trained legal interviewers speak multiple languages, including Spanish and Chinese, and can refer the client to a highly skilled attorney.

If you are not a member of LRIS, please join one of our many panels responding to the 50,000 annual calls for legal representation. Visit
