Disability Discrimination Lawyers in Washington, D.C.
You Deserve a Workplace Free from Discrimination
If you have a disability, you understand firsthand how difficult it can be to function in a world designed for those who do not have one. The professional world is one sphere where this is particularly true. Employers do not always provide reasonable accommodations to their workers. Some employers even refuse to hire or promote employees who have disabilities.
At Clark Law Group, we believe that this is not right. For more than a decade, we have successfully advocated for the rights of workers throughout the country. We have a detailed understanding of local regulations in every state.

How Do I Know Whether I Have Experienced Discrimination?
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers are forbidden from discriminating against someone based on a disability — real or perceived. However, it is not always easy to realize that you have experienced this.
Some common examples of disability discrimination include:
- An employer failing to provide reasonable accommodations
- A supervisor refusing you a promotion due to your disability
- An employer refusing to hire you due to your disability
- Co-workers making offensive comments or jokes
- Co-workers posting offensive material or images
