Scott has been very supportive of our legal clinic and very generous with his time. When we asked Scott to join us at Camillus House, Scott’s response asked was without hesitation “I’ll be there.” Sure enough, Scott got there, rolled up his sleeves and was ready to answer questions regarding criminal law.

Scott Kotler’s generosity with his time extended beyond the legal clinic. Scott was not only willing to answer questions for one of the legal clinic’s clients, but he also offered to help this individual with his case pro bono. Scott met with the client and worked on his case to help this client clear his record in order to obtain a job. He not only worked on the issues the client was facing locally in Florida, but also addressed the issues this client had in another state. When we conducted our most recent legal clinic, Scott was there again, helping answer questions and taking on more pro bono work. Scott was also willing to help a client who was facing issues with Disability Law when we did not have a disability attorney present at this clinic. He did not just say, “I know nothing about disability law,” and move on. He actually took the initiative to get this client information to find him a disability lawyer who will be able to address his issues. It is great to know that we can always count on Scott at our legal clinics.
