Brian Furgal

The Project

A dedicated team of 3 attorneys with the support of several law students are removing legal barriers to employment for low income members of the community. Clients with criminal records, poor credit, or those without a driver’s license have more challenges in finding employment than those without those barriers. Through expungement and appearances in traffic courts we work to remove those legal barriers.
