Expungements

ExpungementsOverview

This project focuses on helping people convicted of misdemeanors and felonies get convictions expunged from their records. For these individuals, this means more job opportunities, housing options, and eligibility for public benefits. Students meet directly with the clients, instructing them on eligibility and helping them fill out the appropriate forms to start the expungement process.
