ADA Defense

Litigation Expertise

There is no cookie cutter solution to cases filed under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”).

Every business and every facility is unique. Some facilities have legitimate exemptions, while others have facilities cannot feasibly be altered to meet the current building codes. EXPERIENCE is key to knowing how to mitigate and defeat predatory ADA lawsuits.

Ms. Finnerty is a recognized expert in ADA facility defense.  She has handled over 500 ADA cases, encompassing over 3,000 facilities.  She has successfully represented national chain retailers, restaurants, wineries, theatres, race tracks, office buildings, shopping malls, insurance companies, and elevator companies.  Ms. Finnerty is one of the very few attorneys who has successfully won ADA cases at trial, prevailed at summary judgment and obtained sanctions against the most notorious drive-by plaintiffs.  Her practical advice and experience permits every client to receive the best possible result.  If litigation is the best alternative, Ms. Finnerty has actual trial experience in defeating meritless ADA cases, both large and small, without paying the Plaintiffs a cent.

Prevention & Compliance Advice

The ADA is a complex civil-rights statute that has become a weapon in thousands of “drive-by” lawsuits with little or no merit.  ADA is a specialty that requires extensive expertise.

Ms. Finnerty has over 10 years of experience in litigating and preventing ADA lawsuits. She has successfully defeated dozens cases, and has strategically negotiated hundreds of others. She has extensive knowledge of the intricacies of state and federal law, and vast experience with the well-known ADA plaintiffs and their lawyers, which is key to each case strategy.
