Project GRACE Expungement Help Desk
The Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic’s Project GRACE (Guided Re-entry And Community Education) has initiated the Pro Se Justice Project. The program established a Help Desk at the City County Building staffed by law students, volunteers, and Clinic staff. The Help Desk currently distributes information, provides basic navigation through petitions, and answers general questions regarding the expungement/sealing of criminal records. The Help Desk assists qualified persons in properly filling out the paperwork, but will not offer legal advice or representation. Training is provided and knowledge of criminal law is not necessary in order to become a Help Desk volunteer.
