This site is designed to be accessible to and usable by people with and without disabilities. Please contact us if you encounter an accessibility or usability issue on this site.
With one exception, all pages on this site have been designed and generated to conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AAA and to the 2018 WCAG 2.1 Level AAA. These guidelines are issued by the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium. The one exception is that not all pages meet WCAG 2.1 Success Criteria 3.1.5 (a AAA Reading Level requirement). As often as possible, each page or post includes a Simplified Summary as an alternative to the Reading Level Requirement.
This website was launched in March, 2016. Prior to launch it was tested by a cross section of blind and visually impaired users. It was built in WordPress using one of the “WordPress accessibility ready themes” known as Toivo.
In 2018 this site was upgraded to meet the 2018 WCAG 2.1 AAA standards. The site was included in the implementation report that was part of the WCAG 2.1 adoption process. Read more about WCAG 2.1 and LFLegal.com’s involvement.
