Free Virtual Expungement Clinic in Philadelphia

Authored By: Community Legal Services of Philadelphia

Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), Community Legal Services of Philadelphia is hosting Virtual Expungement Clinics instead of live clinics in the Philadelphia community.

lf you have a Philadelphia criminal record AND you are a Philadelphia resident, you may qualify for free legal help to clear up your record through the expungement, sealing or pardon processes. 

  • You May be able to EXPUNGE charges that were dropped, summary comvictions and special programs.
  • You MAYhave automatically had your record sealed by PA's new Clean Slate law, or be able to seal old, minor misdemeanor convictions by petition.
  • You generally CANNOT expunge or seal felony or serious meisdemeanores convictions. These require a pardon from the Governor.


If you cannot sign up online you can also call the CLS intake line at 215-981-3700 and leave a message for the Employment Unit.
