Abusive Lawsuits

You Are Not the Only Target of Abusive ADA Lawsuits

Some estimates place the cost of abusive ADA lawsuits at over $30,000,000 in the State of California alone. A large fraudulent industry has sprung up throughout California where allegedly disabled people will visit primarily minority owned stores searching for trivial structural violations. Upon locating a minor violation, these plaintiffs – also known as serial schemers – will immediately contact their attorney and set in motion a plan to extort the business out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. These schemers, in conjunction with their unscrupulous attorneys, will immediately begin billing massive legal fees which will normally exceed $10,000 before a single court appearance is ever made.

Winning An Abusive ADA Lawsuit is Now Possible

Over the past half-decade, there has been an ever increasing pushback by the legislature and courts to prevent abusive lawsuits. Many attorneys have been sanctioned and disbarred for abusive practices and for bringing disgrace upon the California State Bar.

This is a positive thing for small businesses, as today, Defendants have more power than ever to fight back. Gone are the days when an unethical attorney could merely send a demand letter for tens of thousands of dollars worth of bogus fees and costs and wait for their paycheck to arrive. Recent years boast court dockets full of examples of Defendants that were able to correct violations at a small cost, and dispose of their cases before they lost everything they owned to a serial schemer.
