Vacating Records CLE

Vacating Records: A Primer for Beginners | Tuesday, July 31st | 12:00-1:30 pm

Volunteer Legal Services (VLS) is now seeking mentee attorneys for its Records Project. Brand new attorneys (or attorneys new to this area of law) are encouraged to take part in this mentorship program.

Criminal histories are a huge barrier for low-income King County residents seeking employment and housing. Mentee attorneys will represent clients in vacating their adult convictions to reduce these barriers and help increase their chances of being hired or securing stable housing. All cases/clients are pre-screened by staff attorneys and mentorship is available.

For attorneys interested in volunteering for the Records Project, we have an upcoming CLE specifically for vacating records that goes over the procedural and substantive law on Tuesday, July 31st, 12:00-1:30 pm. The presenter is Vitaliy Kertchen, a private attorney from Tacoma that almost exclusively handles these types of cases. VLS is offering the CLE both in person at KCBA (limited seating available) and via webcast.

More info can be found here. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Paige Hardy directly.
