Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
Senior Counsel

Scott Woodruff, a follower of Christ since his conversion in 1971, earned his juris doctor degree from the University of Virginia in 1980. After working for John Ashcroft, and subsequently a major regional insurance company, Scott came to work for HSLDA in 1998.

He is a member of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States, and licensed in Virginia and Missouri. He has assisted thousands of home educating families in dealings with child protective services investigators, police officers, truant officers, principals, superintendents, and prosecuting attorneys.

He has represented HSLDA members in court, and appeared before many state legislatures to fight against repressive homeschool legislation. Scott is a frequent speaker at homeschool conferences and on radio programs across the country.

Scott currently handles legal issues for HSLDA members in Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, South Dakota, Virginia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. He also has extensive previous experience dealing with members’ legal issues in Colorado, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Vermont, and West Virginia.

Scott and his wife, Jane, have three adult children, all of whom they homeschooled, and a very special, red-headed 3-year old.
