Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.Teresa, good grief, I am genuinely sorry to hear that you and your spouse are in this predicament. Nobody should be exposed to such ridicule and humiliation. I do not suggest you write letters to the owner, I suggest you retain counsel, specially a civil rights attorney with experience in A.D.A. (Americans WIth Disabilities Act) litigation experience. Based on behavior (rude comments) and based on the fact the past stall was re-rented without any sort of a fire marshall issue, there is clearly an issue here pertaining disability. As a consequence filing suit may well be a good option since this appears to be both discriminatory and retaliatory in nature.Good luck.
Thank you Dimitry:
Is it expensive to hire a civil liberty lawyer, or do they usually evaluate the case and decide if they can take it on a contingency basis. Where do you find a good civil liberty lawyer in the area if you live in a different state.
Teresa,In this instance, while I cannot promise such an outcome, I see many attorneys consider taking such a case on contingency, meaning that they would only get paid if they prevail. I cannot promise any attorney would accept it, but I see that as a viable possibility. I would suggest that you check out www.avvo.com and www.martindale.com for competent counsel. There you can search by fees, location, experience, and expertise.Good luck!
