Lecture:Expungment Process-Seal Conviction Records

Due to the great success of this lecture in March, the San Mateo County Law Library has invited Attorney Alex Easterbrook back to speak a second time on the issues of which convictions are eligible for expungement, what expungement can and cannot do to your criminal record, and how to apply for expungement.

A criminal record can adversely affect your life for years beyond the crime and punishment. It can hinder your ability to find gainful employment, obtain professional or commercial licenses, and be a consequence in future criminal proceedings.

Let's Talk Books

Laura Hillenbrand’s "Unbroken: a World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption"
“A second book by the author of Seabiscuit (2001) would get noticed, even if it weren't the enthralling and often grim story of Louie Zamperini.

Taken prisoner by the Japanese, he endured a captivity harsh even by Japanese standards and was a physical and mental wreck at the end of the war.
