The Project

Adam reduced the collateral consequences of a juvenile record by representing clients in expungement and other post-adjudication petitions.

Most people with juvenile delinquency records change, mature, and become contributing members of society. Unfortunately, a delinquency record often becomes a barrier to gainful employment, quality housing, and education. For those who are eligible to have these barriers removed, the process of petitioning and arguing their case to the court can be confusing and intimidating. The state does not provide a public defender-type legal service for this type of work.
