Expungement

Expungement is the legal process of having a criminal conviction cleared from your public record. An expungement is a great way to move forward with your life without having to disclose an old crime or have it show up on a public background check when seeking jobs, housing, education, and other opportunities. Our expungement team works year round to provide legal support and guidance through our partnership with pro bono attorneys.
