Human Rights

Understanding How International Law Can Protect Your Human Rights

The term “human rights” refers to the fundamental rights and protections owed to every human being. They include the right to freedom of expression, to non-discrimination, to a fair trial, and to be free from arbitrary arrest and detention, among many others. Unfortunately, repressive governments increasingly violate these fundamental rights. We at GYH are well-versed in international law and understand how it can be used to protect you from harm, and secure vindication and reparations for harm suffered.

Defending Your Human Rights

Our team of tenacious advocates use a holistic approach to defend your human rights. We work closely with our clients to understand their goals and their concerns. We evaluate available options before multiple rights institutions  and develop effective strategies for an individualized and effective path forward.

Securing International Justice

Our attorneys have sought justice for our clients before numerous international and regional human rights institutions. We have zealously advocated before the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, the premier regional body for securing access to justice in the Americas. If you believe your human rights have been violated or are in danger of being violated, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our team.
