Welcome to the Arizona Center for Disability Law
The Arizona Center for Disability Law (ACDL) is a not for profit public interest law firm, dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals with physical, mental, psychiatric, sensory and cognitive disabilities.
We provide a variety of legal services to people with disabilities and/or disability-related problems. We focus primarily on those cases in which individuals have nowhere else to go for legal support.
We provide information, outreach and training on legal rights and self-advocacy, represent individuals in negotiations, administrative proceedings and court, and investigate abuse and neglect.
