Celebrating The 20th Anniversary Of The Americans With Disabilities Act

By Martin & Jones on July 30, 2010

This week, we celebrate 20 years of protection and opportunities made possible by the Americans with Disabilities Act, known as the ADA. On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed the ADA into law, which makes it more possible for Americans with disabilities to meaningfully participate in our society and provides protection against unfair discrimination. Whether someone is born with a disability, or, like some of our clients, becomes disabled due to someone else’s negligent conduct, it is important to provide legal protections so that disability does not lead to marginalization.
