If so, what type of attorney can handle this? Do you need a local attorney or anywhere in the country will work?
A litigator would be an appropriate choice for you here. You would want to ensure they are a licensed Florida attorney and that you are comfortable with him/her and their anticipated representation of your interests. S/he does not need to reside or have offices in your city/county, but some clients prefer local options. Good luck

That's actually a very novel question. Any civil trial or personal injury lawyer familiar with ADA issues would be a start. The REAL issue is how would the "ban" be related to a disability? Under the ADA you are entitled to reasonable accommodation not, simply the ability to whip out a "disability card" to any offense and scream "take it back!". By example if you have Typing Tourette Syndrome (TTS) uncontrollably spewing out expletives in online posts, this would likely run afoul of terns of service and result in a ban caused by a disability. In contrast if you suffer from IHTS (also known as I Hate Trump Syndrome) and get banned because you post TOS violation memes and comments, that you also suffer from disabling MDS, affords you no accommodation.
To be clear, no liberal, left wing socialist or alt aright animals were hurt in this post or the memes referenced. Any and all references to TTS and IHTS are fictional, as they are non-existent conditions and not intended to apply to persons real or imagined or those that post on AVVO masquerading as former college professors at East Coast Florida small colleges teaching Real Estate law and sporting magnificent 1970's vintage porn stashes that make Freddy Mercury fans tear up with joy.
