CMLS on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

COVID-19: At this time, all CMLS in-person legal clinics are cancelled. CMLS attorneys are still available for advice over the phone. To speak with an attorney, contact our Intake line to see if you qualify for our services.

Many CMLS clinics require pre-registration. If you are registering to attend a clinic, you will be asked to conduct that meeting over the phone.

We will update this information as changes arise.

This clinic is held monthly in partnership with the Volunteer Lawyers Network (VLN). No pre-registration is necessary. There will be an information session followed by an opportunity to meet individually with a lawyer to talk about whether you qualify for our services.

*People meeting these minimum qualifications may not be eligible for services based upon convictions since completion of sentence, number of offenses, or other factors.  These eligibility guidelines are for our free legal services only and do not mean that you do not “qualify” for an expungement.  You may be eligible for other free legal assistance even if you are not eligible for ours, or you may petition for expungement without representation.
