Kathleen called us for help after encountering discrimination in her search for an apartment. She could no longer manage the steps in her townhouse and needed a place on one level to share with her son. She found the perfect apartment, but the landlord said he would not rent to her due to her disability, because she would ask for a ramp and an accessible parking space and he did not want to provide these things. Our attorney advocated on Kathleen’s behalf with the landlord, explaining that refusing to rent to a person with a disability because they might require accommodations in the future is discrimination. The landlord agreed to rent the apartment to Kathleen and she and her son are happily settled in their new place.
