Human rights are the morals, principles, or norms that describe certain standards of human behavior. They are protected as legal rights in municipal and international law and commonly understood as fundamental rights “to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being,” and They are also “inherent in all human beings” regardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin or any other status.
Laws have been created to protect citizens against unfair treatment and/or injustice. Without the proper representation to navigate those laws and system, one could see a bad situation turn worse. Recent news has proven that there needs access to good representation.
Too many people are being treated poorly and taken advantage of and accepting it.
