Family Court That Puts Children's Interests First

Scotia Consulting Inc. developed resources for family courts and assisted drug prosecutions in the same way it helped Other Courts meet their needs. The Los Angeles, California-based company got started by assisting a Fort Worth, Texas, Drug Court in 1998. The county government was so impressed with our system that they invited us to create a something similar for family courts.
