Detroit Attorney Offers Free “Second Chance Seminars” To Help Expunge Criminal Records

Second Chance Seminars, presented by Detroit Attorney Kevin Bessant, provides free legal consultation, and resources to help persons with criminal records successfully apply for criminal record expungements with Michigan Courts.

Detroit Michigan Criminal Defense law firm, the Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates, PLLC will offer free bi-monthly “Second Chance Seminars” and legal consultations to individuals who have questions and concerns regarding their eligibility to seek a criminal expungement in Michigan. A criminal expungement is the legal process that allows a person who has previously been convicted of a crime to file an Application with the court to request that their criminal record be permanently removed from their criminal background and officially deleted from public access.

Often times individuals and families lack the financial resources necessary to help resolve many of their legal concerns and matters, including the foundational tools required to seek a criminal expungement. Attorney Kevin Bessant explained, “A criminal record or criminal conviction can create many obstacles and roadblocks in a person’s ability to successfully pass criminal background checks; obtain adequate employment; housing; educational opportunities; and can impair all efforts to achieve personal advancement and progress in a person’s overall well-being. In most cases a criminal expungement is the only available option for a person with a criminal past to achieve better opportunities for a fresh start in their life.”

“Second Chance Seminars” are designed to serve as an on-going legal platform to provide the appropriate resources, materials, legal requirement checklists, and assistance for persons to successfully complete the application process and prepare for their expungement hearing date. The goal of each seminar is to 1) Establish and meet all eligibility requirements to apply for a criminal expungement; 2) Assess each individuals circumstances to establish best practices for the submission of application materials and supporting documents; 3) Connect with community employers and resources to seek employment and career opportunities; and 4) Perform mock oral arguments to prepare for expungment hearing before the requisite tribunal.

The Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates has helped hundreds of clients obtain an expungement of their criminal record by successfully filing the required application materials and legal motions required by the court to expunge criminal convictions and criminal records. Second Chance Seminars are free of charge and limited to the first 50 people who register online or call the Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates prior to the deadline date of March 15, 2014.
