The Voluntary Legal Services Program of Northern California provides services to clients who need help with the expungement (clearing up) of their criminal records. Expungement is a process where a conviction or plea (of guilty or no contest) is set aside and the conviction is dismissed.
An expungement does not seal or destroy a client's criminal record, but it allows the client to state to a private employer (not to an employer that is publicly funded) that he or she has not been convicted of a crime. Expungement of a client's record helps increase the likelihood that the client will be able to obtain employment and increase his or her family's financial stability.
Eligible clients with these types of problems are referred to
the Criminal Records Expungement Clinic. At this Clinic, clients
will receive assistance from paralegals who are experienced in
this area of law.
The Clinic’s staff and volunteers do not represent clients
in legal proceedings, but they do provide legal advice and assistance
with the preparation of legal documents.
The Criminal Records Expungement Clinic is held in conjunction
with the Driver’s License Reinstatement Clinic on Tuesdays,
Wednesday and Thursdays between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., at the
Broadway Career Center. Please click
here for the location of the Clinic. Client appointments are scheduled for the week on Monday mornings, beginning at 8:00 am, at the site of the Clinic.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA).
