Do you have a criminal arrest, charge, or conviction from the District of Columbia that is preventing you from finding a job, a home, or more?
If you are a D.C. resident, attorneys at the Rising for Justice Expungement Program can help determine if you are eligible to get your record cleared. We conduct regular free intake interviews to determine whether you are eligible and to help you learn more about your rights.
Do you reside outside of D.C.? Rising for Justice’s Expungement Program only provides legal services to D.C. residents seeking to expunge or seal their D.C. criminal records. The Expungement & Reentry Services Referral List is a non-exhaustive list of resources meant to aid individuals looking to expunge or seal their criminal records in other jurisdictions. The list is divided by state, and includes contact information for legal service organizations, as well as some informational links. While we try to update the list with additional resources as we become aware of them, we cannot guarantee that the list is totally up-to-date or that the inclusion of an organization guarantees their ability to assist with any particular issue.
