WASHINGTON CIVIL & DISABILITY ADVOCATE
WHO WE ARE
Washington Civil and Disability Advocate is guided by the simple but powerful proposition that all lives have equal dignity and worth. As a result, this organization is committed to providing legal services to people with disabilities without charging attorney fees. Washington Civil and Disability Advocate is committed to an "all of the above" approach to increasing accessibility and inclusion in Washington state and, in addition to litigation, assists with disability education and awareness efforts, including informing the disability community on disability rights.
Washington Civil & Disability Advocate is currently home to three attorneys. It was founded in 2016 by Conrad Reynoldson to ensure individuals with disabilities a low-cost avenue to protect their civil rights. WACDA was established as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit in February 2017.
MEET THE TEAM
Conrad, our founder, and the lead attorney was born in Tacoma and is a lifelong Washingtonian.

Jill Sulzberg is licensed to practice law in Washington, Texas, and Illinois (inactive). After college, Jill was an advocate for a large disability rights organization in New York City, where she often focused on employment issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The legal team there inspired Jill to become a lawyer, and she spent her first years as an attorney in Chicago and El Paso, Texas practicing labor and employment law exclusively. Jill also has experience as a mediator and conciliator. Outside the office, Jill enjoys running in the woods with her dog, sea kayaking, and reading fiction.
Bonnie Fong is an experienced litigator across diverse practice areas. Before joining the WACDA team, Bonnie engaged in commercial litigation, administrative appeals, and contract drafting and enforcement. Bonnie also has an extensive pro bono background with marginalized communities including her work with the King County Housing Justice Project, Vacating Criminal Records Project, and others. When Bonnie is not fighting for the rights of others, she is a dedicated foster parent and case manager at the Seattle Animal Shelter.
