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 and Samaritan Ministries.
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.
The clinics are on Mondays, with the updated schedule below. 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.
Call ESR at (336) 722-9400 for directions or confirmation that the clinic is being held.
Call Samaritan Ministries (336) 748-1962) for confirmation and directions for clinics held at their location.
Please note that we cannot answer any legal questions for you; you must speak with one of the students at the clinic.
ESR closes at 6:00 PM. Clinics are now Mondays. There are no clinics in December or January. Watch this post for continued schedule updates.
