To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community, protect our staff, and avoid overwhelming our health care system, ARCH is closing our office and will be working from our homes for a few weeks, as of Monday, March 16. We are asking that anyone requiring our services not come to our office in-person. Please contact us via telephone or email. We will not have access to our TTY.
Sending an email or leaving a voicemail message to ARCH Disability Law Center does not constitute a retainer nor does it mean that ARCH is your lawyer. Please do not send confidential information about your case to ARCH before you speak with a lawyer.
ARCH’s office hours are: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday to Friday.
ARCH’s in-person and telephone summary advice and referral service is closed between 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM each day, and all day on Thursdays.

If you are seeking legal information from ARCH, and cannot contact us via telephone due to disability-related reasons, we can be contacted via email at email@example.com. Please include both your first and last name when emailing ARCH for legal information.

Please note that as of Monday, January 13, 2020, the parking elevator at 55 University will be taken out of service for a mechanical modernization for approximately 8 weeks. This elevator services the Ground Floor, Retail Concourse and parking garage at 55 University.
During the time that this elevator is unavailable, visitors can use other accessible parking services close to 55 University Avenue. If you are arriving by subway, please take the subway elevator to street level and enter the building through the main street level doors.
At ARCH, we try our best to keep our office and events free of scents and fragrances. These may cause health problems for staff and visitors. We ask for your cooperation by not wearing perfumes, aftershave, lotions or any other scented products when visiting us.
