Hon. Dorothy Brown, Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County


The Expungement Summit is an opportunity for you to receive free legal consultation regarding your options for criminal records relief and, if you are eligible, to file petitions to expunge or seal.

The Expungement Summit will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2020, at Apostolic Church of God, 6320 S. Dorchester Ave., Chicago, IL 60637, from 8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

After you complete your application, you will receive an “in receipt” email. Your application will then be reviewed and you will receive an email within 1-14 days to confirm that all required information and documents were received and you are registered for the Summit. Once your registration has been accepted, volunteer attorneys, under the supervision of Cabrini Green Legal Aid (CGLA), will begin researching your case in advance of the Expungement Summit.

On the day of the Expungement Summit, volunteer attorneys will consult with you about your options for relief. You will also have an opportunity to meet with other service providers who will offer information about employment opportunities and other support services.
