Fox & Robertson is a two-lawyer civil rights firm based in Denver, Colorado with a practice focused on effecting systemic change toward disability justice using the tools of the legal system, including litigation, negotiation, and legal education.
F&R was founded in 1996 by Tim Fox and Amy Robertson as they escaped from their biglaw jobs, determined to devote their careers to civil rights and to wear suits to work as rarely as possible.
From 1996 to 2013, F&R successfully litigated class action discrimination cases against major companies such as Kmart, Burger King, Taco Bell, and E*Trade as well as individual and organizational cases, all securing equal opportunity and greater access to the built environment for people with disabilities. From 2013 to 2021, Tim and Amy took a break to found and grow a civil rights nonprofit – the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center – before handing the reins to an experienced nonprofit professional and returning to private practice. Among their other accomplishments at CREEC, Tim and his co-counsel brought a nationwide class action against ICE and DHS challenging conditions of confinement in immigration detention facilities, and Amy litigated the case that resulted in videophones being provided to Deaf prisoners in Colorado.
Here at FoxRob 2.0, Tim and Amy continue to work on impact disability right cases, including separate cases on behalf of Deaf prisoners and blind prisoners against the Colorado Department of Corrections, cases challenging inaccessible curb ramps in several cities around the country, and a case challenging racial inequities in California’s Medicaid program. They are also supporting the work of Bill Lann Lee, the Court-appointed settlement monitor in a groundbreaking fair housing case involving the City of Los Angeles.
