The Human Trafficking Prevention Project

in Family Law April 4th, 2019


JGL attorneys, Darin Rumer & Rama Taib-Lopez are volunteers with the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS) and act as a resource for family law (and other) clients who are being served through the Human Trafficking Prevention Project taking the cases of survivors of human trafficking on a pro bono basis in the local Courts where JGL attorneys regularly practice law.  


The Human Trafficking Prevention Project is launching a campaign soon to highlight the intersectionality between human trafficking and the various areas of civil law that can impact a survivor’s ability to safely and successfully move forward with their lives.


Human trafficking is a horrible crime that exists in Maryland and affects all parts of the State. Three major airports, inexpensive bus transportation, train service along the east coast, large sporting events and disposable income makes Maryland an attractive destination for traffickers. We at JGL are glad to extend our support on this important issue.


Here are some links to resources and information, as well as a video from actual survivors of human trafficking, narrated by Mira Sorvino:
