Timothy Elder founded TRE Legal Practice to fight for the rights of disabled people.
We participate in complex impact litigation and class actions in state and federal courts throughout the United States, usually involving novel issues around access for blind and otherwise disabled people and often involving emerging technologies. We frequently work to resolve issues through structured negotiations, advocacy, and targeted assistance with the goal of helping our clients—while also pushing for systemic change that will benefit everyone.
