William D. Goren is one of the country’s foremost authorities on the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. For 28 years and continuing, he has been advising on ADA compliance as both an attorney and professor—of which during his time as a full-time academic at various institutions in Chicago, he won numerous teaching awards and achieved tenure.
With the goal of making all aspects of the ADA (Titles I, II, III, V, constitutional law), the Rehabilitation Act and related laws understandable, Mr. Goren’s practice is divided into two equally important areas. First, a representation side. On the representation side, Mr. Goren will take individuals through administrative processes. Mr. Goren will also co-counsel with other attorneys on their ADA matters (both plaintiff and defense). Examples of Mr. Goren’s co-counseling include defending places of public accommodations from title III architectural barrier lawsuits and the prosecuting of an effective communication case. Finally, the representation side includes providing legal advice on ADA and related matters.
