If you have received a demand letter or are being sued for website accessibility, it’s best to get a defense attorney who specializes in dealing with web accessibility cases.
I recommend Richard Hunt of the Hunt Huey law firm.
Richard is a leading ADA and FHA defense attorney who is experienced with website accessibility cases and is familiar with the plaintiffs’ lawyers who send out demand letters and file these cases.
I recently had him on the Accessible.org Podcast and we covered a number of topics including:
- Smaller businesses being sued
- Strategy for addressing website accessibility
- Don’t ignore demand letters
- Settlement costs
- Browsewrap arbitration agreements
- The WCAG standard vs. legal standard
I’m an attorney as well and write on legal best practices for website accessibility on a regular basis. I highly recommend Richard to anyone who receives a demand letter or has had a digital accessibility lawsuit filed against them.
Besides being excellent, Richard is one of the few attorneys who actually responds to email and answers his phone.
I try to help as many people as possible prevent a demand letter from ever arriving in their mailbox but, if you do find yourself defending against a claim, Richard Hunt is who I recommend.
We will end up hosting at least one webinar together. If you’d like to be alerted when that’s available, subscribe to Accessible.org.
