For more than fifteen years, I have been committed to high quality legal work in partnership with people and organizations fighting for equity.

I started ADA Update to provide innovative, interactive analysis about problems and possible legal solutions under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and similar statutes. My hope is to inform my disability law practice — and perhaps provide a broader contribution to the field.

I practice at Kakalec Law PLLC, a public interest law firm in New York.

Before attending law school, I was a Surface Warfare Officer in the U.S. Navy, serving in USS Abraham Lincoln and USS Port Royal. That military experience informs my life and my legal practice.
