Cross Participates in Pro Bono Expungement Clinic

Matt CrossMatt Cross, an attorney in our Traverse City office, recently participated in a pro bono expungement clinic to clear old criminal convictions.  The clinic is designed to remove barriers to employment and housing for people with old felony and misdemeanor convictions.

Mr. Cross met with participants at no charge to discuss their situation and assisted them with completing legal forms.  Michigan law allows individuals to set aside some, but not all, types of convictions when more than five years have passed since the sentence has been served and probation completed.

The clinic was a partnership between Legal Services of Northern Michigan, Conflict Resolution Services, the Grand Traverse-Leelanau-Antrim Bar Association, and Women Lawyers Association.
