- general information about legal rights;
- strategies about how to become a stronger self-advocate;
- community education and training;
- legal services for disability rights violations; and
- information sheets on a wide range of subjects that can empower individuals with disabilities to better advocate for themselves. View our Self-help information sheets.
DRW attorneys and interns are available to talk with you between the hours of 9:00 am - 12 pm and 1 pm - 4 pm Monday through Friday. We schedule a few phone appointments each day and the rest of the day is open calling. We receive dozens of calls a day, and as such may not be available to take your call right away.

DRW does not accept email requests for technical assistance services.
People sending email to DRW have a reasonable expectation of privacy. However, DRW does not use encryption, and all email coming to DRW is routed through a third party internet service provider (ISP) before it reaches DRW. Although it is unlikely that an ISP will intercept and review a message, it is a possibility, especially if a message is incorrectly addressed and "bounced back" to the sender. Therefore, you may want to consider alternative methods of accessing our services if you are concerned about confidentiality.
DRW cannot provide direct assistance in the following situations:
- Criminal law
- Family law
- Assistance becoming the guardian of an individual with a disability
- Out-of-state issues
- Workers compensation
- General medical malpractice & personal injury
- General consumer bankruptcy issues
- Any issue or problem not directly related to your disability
- Assistance finding employment, housing or financial assistance
- Assistance filling out forms & Social Security applications
- Anything that is not the wish of the person with the disability
Special Needs, Special Attorneys
GREAT WEBSITE- Great Information!
The Special Needs Alliance is a national, non-profit organization committed to helping individuals with disabilities, their families and the professionals who serve them. Many of our member attorneys have family members with special needs; all of them work regularly with public benefits, guardianships/conservatorships, planning for disabilities and special education issues. We volunteer significant time to the special needs community and advocate for legislative and regulatory change to improve quality of life for individuals with disabilities.
The Special Needs Alliance is a selective national organization that is structured to ensure that clients, attorneys and fiduciaries have access to attorneys in the fields of special needs planning and public entitlements regardless of location.
