Dr. Karin Huffer, Marriage and Family Therapist and Adjunct Professor of John Jay College of Criminal Justice

Dr. Karin Huffer is best known for coining the term legal abuse syndrome emanating from her observations in private practice in marriage and family therapy over a 40-year period.She observed through the years that patients involved in the legal system (litigation in particular) suffered from a traumatic stress preventing them from benefiting from therapy. Symptoms would allay for a short time and then recycle relating to their experiences in court.

“ADA Advocates help to make our adversarial judicial system more fair for those (over 75% of us) who become trapped in courts that more often than not listen only to the overly aggressive and corrupt lawyers who want to steal our homes, children, and liberties and don’t give the unrepresented litigant the time of day.” –Scott E. Stafne, Attorne

The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
 
The ADA is divided into five titles (or sections) that relate to different areas of public life.
 
The ADAAA made a number of significant changes to the definition of “disability.” The changes in the definition of disability in the ADAAA apply to all titles of the ADA.
 
EAA’s advocate training, provided by Dr. Karin Huffer, clarifies and effectuates the rights of those living with invisible disabilities.  EAA’s court advocates are prepared to recognize and challenge legal abuses and the syndrome that can result from extreme stress.  Their education includes the use of tools for and information on conducting functional disability assessments.  Classes prepare advocates to design accommodations that offset symptoms supporting litigants.  The jewel in this program is the incorporation of eight steps to maintain mental health to be incorporated at the beginning, during, and end of the litigation process.  Mental and physical endurance are paramount to life during and after the litigation experience.
