A graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Geoffrey Scovil focuses his practice on criminal defense and habeas corpus law as an independent attorney in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While he stays involved in his local community in Albuquerque, Geoffrey Scovil maintains ties to Cleveland as an avid fan of the Cleveland Browns.

Recently, the Browns contributed to the NFL’s Salute to Service month by honoring a number of military members and veterans during their November 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals. Members of all five branches of the United States military attended the game and received the unique opportunity to participate in several on-field events. During the pregame ceremony, the Browns invited more than 30 active Ohio National Guard members to hold the American flag. The team subsequently honored HM1 Reggie Burton as its First and Ten Coin Toss Captain prior to kickoff.

The Browns also recognized the United Service Organizations of Northern Ohio, which serves as a partner for the team’s ongoing First and Ten initiative. After the game, the team sold game-used gear on the league’s NFL Auction website, giving the full proceeds to such organizations as the Wounded Warrior Project and the Pat Tillman Foundation.
