The Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program will hold a free expunction and non-disclosure clinic for Dallas County residents who meet certain financial guidelines at 4:30 p.m. Feb. 21 at the West Dallas Multi-Purpose Community Center, 2828 Fish Trap Road.
Volunteer attorneys will answer questions on expunction and non-disclosure orders and provide free legal assistance to low-income Dallas County residents. Texas law allows individuals to permanently remove or expunge information about an arrest, charge, or conviction from their permanent records in certain circumstances. If a person does not qualify for an expunction, he or she may qualify for a non-disclosure order. The order does not destroy all record of the offense, but limits the accessibility of the records.
