The Project

Dana’s project focused on breaking down legal barriers to employment for clients in Legal Services of Northwest Minnesota’s 22 county service area. He represented clients in matters related to criminal expungements, Department of Human Services licensure hearings, and drivers license revocation hearings.

Even people who've made mistakes and broken the law are entitled to a second chance. Hopefully my work opens doors to people who've had countless amounts slammed in their face due to previous mistakes.
