Disability Rights Wisconsin is a nonprofit law firm providing representation and services to enhance the lives of people with disabilities in Wisconsin. Our vision is that all persons with disabilities and their families shall be empowered to exercise the full extent of their rights and to pursue the greatest possible quality of life. Our attorneys and advocates challenge systems and society to achieve positive changes in the lives of people with disabilities and their families.

DRW arose out of a disability civil rights movement demanding that the abuse of people with disabilities end and that people with disabilities be included in life, school, workplaces, and communities. Our core values include Diversity, Dignity, Independence, Accessibility, Inclusion, Human Rights, and Liberation.

One of our core values is diversity. A diversity-based approach to disability rights recognizes the intersectional nature of oppression experienced by people with disabilities from underprivileged and underserved communities. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment at DRW. We work to specifically address disability-related injustices at the intersections of disability and race, disability and gender, disability and gender-based violence, and more.

DRW’s offices are located in Madison, Milwaukee and Rice Lake.  Benefits for full time employees include health, dental, vision, life and disability insurance, paid time off, flexible spending accounts, and a 401(k) retirement plan with match.

Background Checks

Because Disability Rights Wisconsin is a community-serving organization and safety is of the utmost importance, Disability Rights Wisconsin requires a background check. The background check is run for employees once a conditional offer of employment has been extended. Background checks are conducted in accordance with all applicable laws and paid for by Disability Rights Wisconsin.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer

We evaluate qualified applicants without regard to disability, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran status, and other legally protected characteristics. View the Department of Labor’s “EEO is The Law” poster for more information about how employers must comply with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws.

Disability Rights Wisconsin  is committed to working with and providing reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities. If you need a reasonable accommodation because of a disability for any part of the employment process, please send us an e-mail at or call (608) 267-0214 and let us know the nature of your request and your contact information.
