The Project

Provide a multidisciplinary approach in serving economically disadvantaged individuals to improve their standard of living by removing legal barriers to employment such as expungement or sealing of criminal records, correction of errors in criminal records, addressing the loss of a driver’s or occupational license, correction of errors on credit reports and repairing a poor credit report by representing the client in court to remove these barriers, working with the client to address any social issues that may also prevent them from obtaining employment and connecting clients to outside agencies for further assistance.
