During his work as an attorney, Scott has become aware of the Human Trafficking issue and the need to provide legal services to human trafficking survivors who otherwise would not be able to afford competent legal counsel on account of lack of financial resources. His work with many of his clients has highlighted the need, which HTJFI will meet, of many legal practitioners to gain understanding to identify those clients who are human trafficking survivors and the need to serve their various legal needs. In his role as Director Scott aims to be an ambassador to the legal community, both to educate practitioners and also to encourage practitioners to donate their time and skills in providing legal services to those survivors of human trafficking who are in need of such services.
