Do you have a criminal record that prevents you from finding work or housing? The Wake Forest University Law Pro Bono Project offers monthly expungement clinics at ESR.
Wake Forest University law students offer one-on-one counseling regarding your eligibility for removing an incident from your criminal record. The students discuss your individual situation with you and take notes. If the student and the supervising attorney agree that you may qualify to have an incident expunged, they will explore your case further and arrange to meet with you to begin your petition.
ESR hosts the expungement clinics the first Thursday of each month, from 4- 6 PM. Be sure to call ahead if you plan to attend, as occasionally the clinics are rescheduled.
The clinic runs on a first-come-first-served basis, so please be patient if you have to wait. Sometimes clinics are quite crowded. Please sign in when you arrive. You’ll need to fill out an intake form before you can be seen, but you do not need to bring anything with you to the clinic.
Visit the Wake Forest University Pro Bono Project website, here, or email them at WakeLawExpungements@gmail.com for additional information about the project or clinics. Call ESR at (336) 722-9400 for directions or confirmation that the clinic is being held. Please note that we cannot answer any legal questions for you; you must speak with one of the students at the clinic.
Samaritan Ministries hosts clinics, also, so check the WFU website for dates and times if you cannot attend one at ESR. The schedule below reflects only those scheduled to be held at ESR.
