Kevin McGuire

Kevin McGuire (L’87)

Founder, McGuire Associates
Founder, AbleRoad

McGuire began using a wheelchair at age 7 after being struck by an intoxicated driver. He has dedicated his life to improving access for people with disabilities, such as ensuring that businesses offer captioning, ramps and materials in alternate format. After law school, McGuire founded McGuire Associates—a consulting firm that helps its clients, including Live Nation concert venues, understand how to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. In 2013, McGuire launched AbleRoad, the first website and app that allows people to rate and review public places based on their ease of access. Let people with disabilities and their family and friends “start telling properties what’s wrong with their spaces. ...If the voices get loud enough, they will respond,” says McGuire.
