Joe Ranni, Esq. of Ranni Law Firm PLLC answers the following questions having to do rights for people with disabilities: Can you tell us the types of disabilities are protected under NYS law? Which type of disability is more vulnerable, physical or mental? Is disability rights similar to civil rights? Does the length of disability define your rights? What rights are often denied to individuals with developmental disabilities? Does a person with a disability have the right to contest guardianship? Are parents and guardians covered under the same rights? Does disability rights vary from state to state? Can a person be laid off right after returning from disability? Can a person be laid off due to a disability? What’s the difference between a disability right advocate and an attorney?
