Free Pardon Applications is a national, non-profit, consumer education web site designed to provide free information for the millions of Americans that have a felony or misdemeanor criminal record. From clearing a criminal record to finding a job after a conviction, this site has (and will continue to get more) useful information provided by legal professionals and those experienced in helping people get the most out of life after a conviction. If your state does not have a recommended attorney in our choosing an attorney section, it will soon have a free self-help kit that will enable most people to clear their record without having to pay for professional help.

Also among its goals is helping people avoid being taken advantage of by unscrupulous businesses that prey on people’s hopes and desperation with promises of clearing their record that go undelivered. Lawyers who specialize in this important area of law receive a steady stream of complaints from consumers about fraud, negligence, and the unauthorized practice of law by “form processors” and “paralegals.” This site can help consumers fight back by providing advice on how to report such actions to state officials and consumer advocacy groups— and pursue possible class action lawsuits.

The best part of this site is that it is free and sells nothing.

While most of the content of this site is provided by attorneys, it is for information purposes and does not constitute legal advice; if you are considering any legal action or remedy, please consult an attorney to review the facts of your case.
