Inmates' Rights

HRF offers rehabilitation assistance to incarcerated individuals, spanning from their time in confinement to aiding their reintegration into society. Drawing from our extensive experience of our Criminal Defense Lawyers, we have observed the shortcomings within the criminal justice system and the alarming rate of recidivism (repeated criminal behavior) among inmates. This recidivism is largely attributed to the challenges they encounter when trying to reintegrate into society.

While we aspire to provide legal support to impoverished inmates, we firmly believe that their needs extend beyond mere release from prison. The paramount question we ask is, "What purpose does release from incarceration serve if there are no opportunities for a successful transition?" We advocate that inmates who express a willingness to reform should receive the essential support and skills necessary to enable them to make a positive contribution to society rather than pose a continued threat.

We hold a steadfast belief that each individual bears a responsibility to prevent former inmates from relapsing into criminal behavior, and this can only be achieved through effective rehabilitation.

Access to Justice

HRF provides pro-bono access to justice for indigent people who otherwise cannot afford legal representation. We have represented over 3,000 inmates and beneficiaries since inception; and assisting people in regaining their freedom is one of the things that delight us.
