Kousha Berokim, Esq. of Canon Law has been very active in sending demand letters with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Unruh Civil Rights Act claims alleging website inaccessibility.
I’ve been in contact with multiple recipients of 2021 demand letters. The plaintiff listed in the demand letter is Xandra Krahe and the letter includes a proposal for “structured negotiations” which amounts to a settlement.
There is also a request for a response by a specific date with a potential lawsuit.
In my experience, the specific claims of inaccessibility made consist of screenshots of WAVE automated scan results.
Canon Law is located in California and is one of many law firms including the Wilshire Law Firm, Pacific Trial Attorneys, Potter Handy, and others who have entered into the swelling cottage industry that targets website owners.

As of the date of this post, his license to practice law is active.
Accessibility professional Karl Groves tweeted about Canon Law:
An ADA troll law firm called Canon Law out of Beverly Hills is using WAVE to justify their law suit. I wonder if they even understand what WAVE is telling them.
