For roof leaks you should have a Roofer - drywall damage repair could be by a Handyman if a smalll area and you are not excessively picky about the final surface finish, otherwise a Drywall Contractor and a Painter. Or wrap all into one with a General Contractor, who may do the interior repairs with his own forces (or by hjimself if a small contractor), and subcontract the leaks to a roofer - just be sure he does not try to do the roof repairs himself unless he has truly qualified roofer on his payroll.

Also - be sure the roofing repairs are done first AND go through a rain or two (or a thorough sprinkler test for several hours at least) before starting the drywall repair, so you are not right back there doing tht again if all the roof issues were not fully and properly addressed the first time.

In the general Contractor area, you would have a couple of choices in Search the List - a normal General Contractor or Remodeling - General Contractor, or one operating as a Water and Smoke Damage (or is it Smoke and Water Damage in Search the List categories ?) contractor, though they normally get involved in interior damage primarily, not roofing issues. However, the larger ones who handle burnouts and such do roofing and siding and such as well as interior leak damage repairs.
