December 9, 2020

Ann Motl, attorney in Maslon's Litigation Group, has authored an article for Attorney at Law Magazine, titled "The ADA and Me: 30 Years of Progress with Much More to Do." In the article, which marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Ann shares her story and unique perspective as a lawyer thriving with a disability.

Ann discusses the misperceptions she has faced, such as doubts about her ability to obtain her degrees and excel at her job, as well as the challenges she encounters in her daily life. She also offers some ideas that law firms can use to promote individuals with disabilities in their work, including: signing the ABA Pledge for Change: Disability Diversity, including persons with disabilities in firm diversity efforts, and making communications accessible.
