NY law firm bans disabled client from bringing service dog into its office

Larkin Axelrod Ingrassia & Tetenbaum, a Newburgh, NY based personal injury law firm is being sued by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. One of the partners in that law firm refused to let a disabled client enter their law offices twice. The reason – she had a service dog.

Bharara said that lawyers should know better than to so flagrantly violate such a well-established law.
