Access To Justice For All
The Monroe County Bar Association is committed to promoting equal access to local attorneys for the Greater Rochester Area's 50,000 deaf and hard of hearing citizens, and ensuring local attorneys are fulfilling their obligations to this portion of the community, in accordance to the American With Disabilities Act.
MCBA members can receive reimbursement for the cost of an interpreter, up to two hours, when meeting with a deaf or hard of hearing client.
For full details, please see the DEAFund Guidelines.
Attorneys seeking reimbursement must submit a DEAFund Interpreter Reimbursement Form.
