Lawyers, like many people, may feel a bit intimidated by their disability and may not be comfortable sharing details of their disability.
However, many legal practitioners are also struggling with their disability, and that’s a big reason why some people may choose not to have a lawyer in their office.
It’s a problem, said Paul Lefebvre, a lawyer with DLA Piper, and one that can have a major impact on their work and the way they handle disability cases.
“They don’t want to be a burden for the client, they don’t like it when they have to be the judge,” said Lefechvre.
Just ask your lawyer.” “
If you’re having a crisis, you don’t need to be having a lawyer.
Just ask your lawyer.”
There are several options when it comes to choosing your disability lawyer.
“You can go to an employment lawyer or you can go straight to an attorney who is a disability lawyer, who can advise you on all the legal issues that you’re facing,” Lefelebvre said.
If you choose to hire a disability attorney, you may need to provide a lawyer’s name and contact information.
Lefecvre said that it’s important to consider whether your disability attorney is trained in the areas of disability law.
If not, there are plenty of options available to you.
For example, lawyers who specialize in working with people with developmental disabilities may be able to help you navigate your disability rights process.
The Disability Lawyers Association of Canada says it is looking into hiring disability lawyers.
“The ADA is very, very broad, so if you’re looking for a lawyer to represent you, the ADA is not the answer,” said David Zaretsky, the association’s president.
“We know a lot of people who are struggling with disabilities.”
Some people with disabilities may choose to have an attorney provide a legal opinion.
For instance, some people with intellectual disabilities may need help in understanding their legal rights and obligations.
Some lawyers can assist people with autism.
Some legal advocates may also provide assistance to people with cognitive disabilities.
There are also a number of people with special needs who may need legal advice in the workplace.
For some people, they may find themselves having to explain their disability in order to gain a job.
“Sometimes they may have to come to work, but then you have another meeting to go through with the employer, so they can decide what to do,” Lekonc said.
“When you have a disability that affects your ability to work at a company, it can be very difficult.”
