Service Dog Denial Attorneys

Veterans with disabilities depend on service dogs to guide them, open doors, retrieve items, and assist with other mobility-related tasks. These faithful companions are trained to help those who have psychiatric conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) moderate their symptoms during an episode. They can even find help in the event of a seizure or diabetic emergency.

So, when a business refuses entry to a service dog, it can have profound physical and emotional consequences for the handler.

The fact of the matter is, Veterans with disabilities don’t merely enjoy the presence of their service animals; they require it. Fortunately, state and federal laws are in place to protect your right to have a service animal with you in public. If an establishment denies your service dog entry, we’ll fight to hold them accountable.

If you believe you were discriminated against because of your service dog, contact our attorneys. It’s our mission to protect your rights and recover full and fair compensation for your hardship.

  • Do I Have a Case?

    If you believe you were discriminated against because of your service animal, our attorneys will work to establish a few key criteria in support of your case:

    • You have a disability. The federal government defines disability as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.” The ADA lists seeing, hearing, eating, sleeping, walking, standing, speaking, breathing, thinking, communicating, and working among its list of major life activities.
    • Your dog is a service animal. A service animal is one that is trained to work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a physical, psychiatric, sensory, intellectual, or other disability. The dog must be trained for a specific task related to your disability. (Emotional support animals are not considered the same as service dogs because they do not require training.)
    • The establishment broke the law by denying you service. Under the ADA, Veterans may be accompanied by their service dog in all public spaces where members of the
      public, program participants, clients, customers, patrons, or invitees, as relevant, are allowed to go.
  • What Damages Am I Eligible For?

    If your service dog was denied lawful entry to a public place, we will fight to protect your rights and recover every penny you’re owed. You may be entitled to financial damages, injunctive relief, and attorneys’ fees, among other damages.

    Our attorneys understand how to identify the full scope of your losses and are well-versed in navigating complex cases. You can rest assured knowing that, with over 1,000 trial-ready lawyers and more than $20 billion won, our law firm has the resources to get the job done and the track record to prove it.
