What types of cases does HDRC handle?

Unfortunately, we aren’t able to provide legal help for every request we receive. Because we have limited staff and funding, we have set priorities on the type of cases we can handle.

Before you contact us, you may find it helpful to review the types of cases (issues) we represent and those we do not represent
