NGO CSTIP January 9, 2024 11:30am-1:00pm EST

Speaker:  Tod Melton

Topic: Tod will discuss his efforts in support of Think Globally, Act Locally.

Tod Melton: Tod Melton is a Third Order Carmelite and an active member of NGO CSTIP.  He has over 30 years of experience as a trial lawyer with a specific background in handling wrongful death cases.  Tod is neither a labor lawyer, nor well-versed in employment law.  Rather, his background in wrongful death led to his representation of the family of Humberto Cassarrubias Sanchez who tragically died in the cornfields of America while working as an H2A agricultural guest worker.  

By using the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act and his knowledge of wrongful death cases, Tod was able to bring healing to the family of Humberto Cassarrubias Sanchez.
