Paraquad’s staff attorneys work with — or refer to their network of resources — people with disabilities who have qualifying legal issues or questions.

Our attorneys specialize in legal issues related to fair housing, discrimination, Social Security overpayments, some limited transactional work such as powers of attorney for health care and some administrative law (representation with state and federal benefit programs).

Since the inception of the individual legal advocacy program, Paraquad staff attorneys have helped hundreds of people with advice, advocacy and representation. Because of their work filling this niche, people have been spared eviction, have had overpayments forgiven and have received timely and necessary access to supports and services that help them remain independent in their homes and communities.
