Legal Services

DRM’s advocacy improves the lives of people with disabilities and creates a more inclusive and just society for all, by advancing human rights. We help people with disabilities pursue opportunities to participate fully in all aspects of community life, and champion their rights to self-determination, dignity, equality, opportunity, and freedom from discrimination and harm.

DRM provides free legal services to Marylanders with disabilities on matters that are related to their disabilities and fall within our advocacy service areas. DRM’s advocacy services are developed in close collaboration with the community of people we serve, and in compliance with our funding sources. DRM continually strives to be responsive to our stakeholders and welcomes comments and suggestions regarding our advocacy services at:

The decision to accept an individual case for representation will be informed by DRM’s Advocacy Services Plan, resource limitations, and our commitment to affecting broad-based, significant and lasting change for Marylanders with disabilities.

Please see DRM’s  2020 Advocacy Service Plan (MS Word) for more information.
