Criminal Record Related Services
9 out of 10 employers run background checks during the hiring process. Old convictions can create unfair barriers to employment and housing, yet most people are not aware that many convictions can be "expunged" under California law.
Elevate aims to begin providing criminal record related services August 2021, including record sealing services, expungement services, and appeals for wrongful denial of housing and wrongful revocation of job offers. Please see our Events Calendar for free clinics in the community. Client inquiry forms will be available by August 2021.
Low and Pro Bono legal Services for Small Businesses
Small businesses often fall into a "gap" in services - many small businesses earn too much to qualify for free programs, yet not enough to afford quality service and representation.
Elevate will begin offering low bono and pro bono services to small businesses in Fall 2021, with many of the services available for a flat fee or on a sliding scale.
