Housing and Community Justice Section

The Housing and Community Justice Section (HCJ) of the Public Advocacy Division litigates cases essential to preserving affordable housing and protecting residents from other abuses. HCJ holds landlords accountable to their duty to provide safe and habitable housing, holds employers accountable to their obligation to pay the wages they owe their employees, and combines available civil or criminal remedies with creative problem solving to address quality of life issues in communities throughout the District of Columbia.
