Free Pardon Applications


LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Criminal defense attorney, William Conwell, will provide a free seminar on “How to clear your criminal record” on Friday, Oct. 29.

The seminar will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Kelseyville United Methodist Church (3810 Main St. in Kelseyville).

“In the current economic climate and job market, having a clean criminal record can really make a difference for individuals looking for work, housing or applying for credit,” said Conwell, who has practiced criminal defense for the past seven years.

“Both adult convictions and juvenile adjudications can be expunged in the State of California, however, not everyone can get their criminal record expunged,” he said. “To be eligible for an expungement, very specific criteria must be met.”


Expungement of a criminal record will be the topic of a free legal clinic Thursday, Oct 28 from 3-6 p.m. at the Hinds Community College Jackson Campus Academic/Technical Center, Bivens Building, on Sunset Drive.

Qualified low-income residents of Hinds, Madison and Rankin counties may seek help with preparation of an expungement.

Expungements will be handled by appointment only.

More details can be obtained by calling Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project at (601) 960-9577 or e-mail [email protected].

      I am not aware of any non-profit that offers no cost expungement on a regular basis. However, we do receive notice free seminars in LA County on occasions. We will post them when we learn of them.
