Bizer & DeReus fights for the civil rights of all Americans. We concentrate on promoting access for disabled and minority groups as well as on protecting consumer rights Since the founding of the firm in New Orleans in 2010, we have developed a national presence with local partnerships in several states. We provide, free of charge, American Sign Language Interpreters for ALL our Deaf & Hard of Hearing Clients.


Bizer & DeReus is one of a small number of Louisiana law firms that concentrate on enforcing the rights of disabled persons under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Fair Housing Act. Bizer & DeReus is committed to ensuring that persons with disabilities received equal access to public and private facilities and services. Disabled individuals have access rights to retail, commercial, and housing locations as well as to government-run services. It is our mission to ensure that whose who own and control facilities and services do not discriminate against the disabled.
