Civil Rights & Housing Discrimination
Gard & Bond has a tradition of litigating important civil rights cases. Our trial successes have advanced the rights of disabled persons and have helped make new law protecting the rights of disabled persons and have established a national reputation in the area of fair housing discrimination.
- Roe v. Housing Authority of the City of Boulder, 909 F.Supp. 814 (D.Colo. 1995). “In Roe, Sanderson and Gard argued successfully that the ADA, the Fair Housing Amendment Act and the Rehabilitation Act require that a public housing provider attempt to reasonably accommodate a disabled tenant before proceeding with eviction.” (National Disability Law Reporter).
- Saville v. Boulder Meadows, 2 P.3d 131 (Colo. App. 2000), which applied the Roe standard to private housing providers. “The woman in this case was fortunate to have strong legal assistance from David Sanderson and Jeffrey Gard.” (Boulder Daily Camera).
What our clients say about us:
My wife and I first became aware of Jeff when he won a precedent setting case in a famous fair housing case. I knew then, that if we ever needed a lawyer, Jeff would be my choice. Since that time, we have had occasion to hire Jeff to protect our interests in a variety of matters, all with extremely favorable results. Over time, Jeff has become our family attorney. Having been in court with Jeff, we can tell you that it is very reassuring to have the best lawyer in the room sitting next to you. My wife once called Jeff “her knight in shining armor” and I wholeheartedly agree with her assessment.
All of the cases, set forth above are for purposes of example, and are not and should not be construed as a guarantee or predictor of future result.
