The Project

Christena directly represented clients seeking criminal record sealing, name changes, or gender marker changes. Teach community education classes on criminal record sealing and offer pleading completion clinics for pro se petitioners.

This project aims to address the needs of individuals to successfully seek employment or better employment, as well as open up educational opportunities for individuals to complete programs and qualify for jobs or promotions. It does this by providing individuals with access to the court and education on how to complete the process pro se or represented by an attorney.
