California Center for Law and the Deaf

The mission of the California Center for Law and the Deaf (CalCLAD) is to protect and advance the legal rights of deaf and hard-of-hearing people to enable them to live independent, productive lives, with full access to the rights, privileges, entitlements, services, educational and employment opportunities available to others.

Legal advice, consultation, and information are provided to deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in issues involving deafness discrimination as well as other issues that are not deafness related, such as consumer or landlord-tenant disputes.  When more extensive assistance or representation is needed, CalCLAD will refer individuals to other legal aid organizations, lawyer referral services or private lawyers.  CalCLAD also provides information, consultation and technical assistance to private businesses and government agencies to assist them in meeting their access and nondiscrimination obligations and to public and private attorneys representing deaf or hard-of-hearing people.

CalCLAD charges a one-time procesing fee for legal advocacy or representation.  The fee is $10 for low income clients and senior citizens, and $25 for other clients. Fees may be waived upon request.
