Why Should My Website Be ADA Compliant? Avoid Lawsuits for Being Non-Compliant
Federal judges rule that non-compliant websites violate Americans with Disabilities Act.

ADA laws are interpreted to apply to all web-based and electronic content, requiring that websites be easily accessible for those who are blind or visually impaired. Businesses whose websites fail to comply with this standard are vulnerable to legal claims that can cost a small fortune in court costs and legal settlements.

People are filing costly lawsuits across the country and more are expected

Business owners threatened with lawsuits are obligated to pay for an attorney, pay to fix their website and likely pay additional fees to settle the case out of court. It is stressful, expensive and time consuming. Businesses Large and small are vulnerable.

There are other advantages to a compliant website besides avoiding a lawsuit.
• YOU ARE LIKELY LOSING MONEY – Stats show that 71% of web users with a disability leave sites that aren't accessible.
• DIGITAL MARKETING –Getting your website in compliance could help you get favorable rankings with Google.
• BETTER EXPERIENCE FOR ALL – An accessible website serves users with a disability and it makes the user experience better for everyone.

Revocable Transfer on Death Deed
A Revocable Transfer on Death Deed (“RTODD”) is a deed of real property that designates a beneficiary to receive the property when the transferor dies. An RTODD enables a homeowner to transfer the property directly to a
desired beneficiary without the expense of creating a trust or going through a probate proceeding. The statute authorizing the use of RTODDs was recently extended, adding additional rules and procedures in an effort to make
RTODDs more useful.
