Who We Are

"The Disability Law Center may be able to help you if you are a person with a disability and have a legal issue related to the disability.

The following are examples of issues/problem areas generally pursued by the Disability Law Center:

  • Social Security applications (SSDI for applicants statewide.)
  • Disability-related employment discrimination;
  • Medicaid appeals;
  • Access to appropriate Special Education programs;
  • Complaints about the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation (TVR), or an Independent Living Center (through our Client Assistance Program):
  • Access to voting.

We typically refer Housing questions to the Fair Housing Project through Alaska Legal Services.

Within available resources and consistent with agency priorities* and case selection factors, the Disability Law Center may:

  • Respond to complaints of abuse, neglect or denial of rights;
  • Provide self-advocacy training and education for consumers, family members, service delivery professionals, constituency groups, and the community;
  • Intervene or assist individuals to advocate for their own rights;
  • Provide legal representation if the problem cannot be resolved using other strategies;
  • Organize workshops and distribute materials on legal rights, special education, public benefits, and other topics;
  • Provide information on the rights of people with physical and/or mental disabilities and make referrals when appropriate.

*Priorities are established each year, in part based upon public comment."
