Preferred Pronouns: She/Her
In February 2017, Eve Hill, one of the nation’s leading disability rights attorneys, joined Brown, Goldstein & Levy, where she continues to pursue her devotion to civil rights. Her wide-ranging experience complements the firm’s dedication to high-impact disability rights cases and its advocacy on behalf of individuals with disabilities and their families.
From 2011 to January 2017, Eve served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, where she was responsible for oversight of the Division’s disability rights enforcement, educational civil rights enforcement, Title VI interagency coordination, and the American Indian Working Group. She was part of the negotiating team for the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled; testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to support ratification of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities; enforced accessibility requirements for websites and other digital technology; implemented Olmstead community integration requirements in employment and education; and enforced disability rights in education, testing, and health care.
Eve is the former Senior Vice President at the Burton Blatt Institute of Syracuse University, where she was responsible for the Institute’s work on the Americans with Disabilities Act, disability civil rights, and communications issues. Her legal advocacy included representing the National Federation of the Blind with respect to the accessibility of information and communication technology, such as the Amazon Kindle and Adobe Digital Editions. She also worked on matters involving transportation accessibility, procurement preferences for disability-owned businesses, affirmative action for people with disabilities, segregated and subminimum wage employment, and ADA community integration requirements and fair housing law.
