Fighting for Our Clients’ Rights Nationwide

The essence of work in civil rights law is to ensure all people protected by rights afforded to them by the United States Constitution or statutory law can seek justice when those civil rights are violated. It’s also about advancing rights for underserved or minority populations, who are traditionally – and often systematically – left behind by the majority in society.

Civil rights litigation has at its core the respect for the dignity and worth of all peoples. This core resolve of civil rights litigation is recognized by the entire international community through multiple international human rights treaties, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights.

One of the hardest issues facing society, and one which our law firm faces every day, is answering the following question: How do you enact the principles enunciated by civil rights and human rights instruments at a community level--so that people actually experience their rights being both promoted and respected? In this sense, HDR attorneys advocate for all demographics. Consequently, our advocacy–both legal and non-legal–varies depending on the needs of the demographic and problems we are serving. For example, when dealing with prison reform, we have sought Department of Justice intervention to help obtain the reform we seek. In sum, we strive for both individual justice and systemic change regarding our promotion of civil and human rights.

At HDR, we take both your civil and human rights seriously because we see both as one.

If you believe your civil rights may have been violated, contact HDR Law online or call our civil rights lawyers at(720) 547-9211 to schedule a case evaluation. We speak English, Spanish, French, and Italian.

How We Fight for Civil & Human Rights

HDR Law fights for civil and human rights on both a national and global scale. One of the ways involves filing our initial briefs with the court. These briefs remind courts that although U.S. laws must form the basis of their decisions, consideration for what the global consensus is on the disputed matters should also be taken into account.

In other words, judges and juries should consider what the international community would deem to be the correct decision to make–such as permitting free speech or protection against cruel and unusual punishment–and take it into account as it applies to U.S. law.

On an international scale, our attorneys also advocate before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) on key issues affecting U.S. citizens. We also work with NGOs and other organizations beyond U.S. borders that do work to cultivate a better sense of understanding, respect, and acceptance of human rights.
