Did you know Illinois has a statewide coordinated system to connect people to free legal services for cannabis expungement? That’s right, New Leaf Illinois is the state-funded first step toward free expungement and sealing services!
“New Leaf is there to help anyone with an Illinois cannabis conviction or arrest navigate and access the expungement process. The process and eligibility can be confusing, and the goal of the coordinated network is to have one place for people to work through the initial steps.” You can learn more about New Leaf Illinois from Rights and Restoration Law Group’s co-founder, Beth Johnson, in the Chicago Reader’s latest issue here.
While Rights and Restoration Law Group is not a legal aid agency providing direct representation through New Leaf, we support access to justice even when it might not be the most profitable option for our business.
