What is an expungement clinic?  Some crimes can be removed or sealed from person’s criminal record. This process is called an expungement. At the Expungement Clinic an experienced attorney will meet with you and review your Oregon court records.  They will help you decide if you have past crimes which are eligible for expungement.

  • The clinics are first-come, first- served. No appointment is necessary.  Attorneys will be there the whole time, so come at whatever time is best for you. Bring photo ID.
  • It is free to talk to an attorney to see if you qualify for expungement.  If you decide to go forward with the court, there may be court fees that you need to pay.

First come, first served. Presented by the Community Law Metropolitan Public Defender Services.

It can be a different and fun change from regular meetings.

Alcoholics Anonymous (or the ‘Big Book’ as it is commonly called) was first published in 1939 and was subtitled The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism. It is the first text written about the experiences of the founders of the A.A. movement. It tells the story of Bill W., one of the co-founders of A.A. and how the program worked in the early days of the movement. It is full of much timeless and practical wisdom and is the first standard (and some would say the only standard) text of A.A. and, subsequently, of 12 step programs.
