Dr. Karin Huffer, Associate Professor in Counseling and Forensic Psychology at King’s International
University, took a fi rst step toward humanizing the legal system in her fi rst book, Overcoming the
Devastation of Legal Abuse Syndrome. She isolates protracted litigation as a public health risk, formalizes
Legal Abuse Syndrome (LAS) as a subset of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and leaps forward
applying the Americans with Disabilities Act to LAS in Unlocking Justice (2012).
In addition to authoring the fi rst graduate and undergraduate syllabi certifying Disability ADA Advocates,
Dr. Huffer also founded Legal Victim Assistance Advocates (www.lvaallc.com), and is one of the country’s
most sought-after keynote speakers and educators on equal access to public and private services for
persons with invisible disabilities.
As one of the nation’s only recognized expert witness in the fi eld of LAS, Dr. Huffer provides treatment, consultation, and expert
witness testimony for persons with disabilities across the country, and continues to combat legal abuse by assisting litigants
with disabilities through the design and implementation of innovative ADA accommodations that ensure equal access for
litigants while conserving court resources.
Dr. Huffer is an ADA Title II and Title III Specialist, and has devoted over two
decades of her life toward researching, diagnosing, and treating LAS, PTSD
and other trauma disorders. She copes with the stress of her career by playing
piano, enjoying her pets, and spending time with her two grown sons.
