Mission Statement

The disAbility Law Center of Virginia’s mission is to advance independence, choice and self-determination; protect legal, human and civil rights; and eliminate abuse, neglect and discrimination of people with disabilities through zealous and uncompromising legal advocacy and representation.

Description

The disAbility Law Center of Virginia ("dLCV") advocates for and protects the legal rights of persons with disabilities.We seek to make the most impact that we can with limited resources.We do this through education, training, the promotion of self-advocacy skills for people with disabilities, and through information and referral services. We also provide direct advocacy services in particular cases that fall within our Strategic Goals and Focus Areas.

Due to limited resources, it is not possible for dLCV to provide legal services or direct representation to everyone who calls for assistance. dLCV provides several levels of support and assistance. However, we believe that people with disabilities are their own best advocates. Therefore, dLCV may provide you with information, written materials or limited technical assistance that will assist you in speaking for yourself. We will also refer you to other agencies or resources when appropriate.
