Why Should You Use a Human Rights Lawyer Instead of Trying to Do It Yourself

Human Rights is a special area of law which requires a thorough understanding of the Ontario Human Rights Code and the practice and procedures of the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal. In some cases, Human Rights Claims may be advanced through the Ontario Superior Court. Without a formal legal training and years of experience, it is almost impossible to navigate this on your own. An experienced Human Rights Lawyer can provide you with the advice you need, make the right decisions for you, and properly represent you at your hearing.
