Pro Bono Eviction Expungement Clinic

The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic crisis have impacted low income Minnesotans in large numbers. Helping someone expunge an eviction from their records can make a big difference in their life, helping them find safe and affordable housing.

Join the SMRLS Volunteer Attorney Program on Friday, June 4 from 1:30-4, to assist individuals with their eviction expungement case preparation, including preparing the petition, and discussing the process. The clinic will take place remotely and SMRLS will provide training for new volunteers. Clients will represent themselves in court and SMRLS staff will file and serve petitions. Volunteers are only responsible for preparing clients’ documents. If you’d like to volunteer, please email Emily Bowen at emily.bowen@smrls.org to learn more.
