Delaware County Office of the Public Defender Hosting Free Expungement Clinic

The Delaware County Office of the Public Defender, supported by Partners for Justice (PFJ) advocates, will host a free expungement clinic on Saturday, June 15, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Delaware County Public Defender’s office in Media.

In addition to record-clearing services, the Expungement Clinic will feature representatives from community organizations who will provide free guidance on immigration concerns, employment needs, and substance use treatment.

Immigration attorney Nadine Atkinson-Flowers will be available to answer residents' questions about immigration, citizenship, and related topics. This is a great opportunity for residents to ask questions, get answers, and receive free guidance.

MVP Recovery will be on hand to distribute information and resources regarding substance use treatment.

EDSI will also be available to help residents with employment needs.

Attorneys will also be available to check for active Delaware County warrants.

  • Arrest occurred in Delaware County, and ONE of the following:
  • Arrest resulted in a non-conviction (charges were “dismissed,” “withdrawn,” “not guilty,” or “nolle prossed”).

  • You completed a diversion program such as ARD, DCMD, or LETI
  • You are 70+ years old and have been arrest free for 10 years
