Lainey provides talks and trainings across the United States and around the world on collaboration, digital accessibility, and the civil rights of people with disabilities. She has been named an American Bar Association (ABA) Legal Rebel, an ABA Problem Solver of the Year, and twice a California Lawyer of the Year.
