Community Law Clinic students, Hamida Owusu (’14), Corinne Keel (’14), Patrick Vergara (’14) and Lara Tumeh (’14) all represented clients in expungement matters this past fall quarter. Their work involved drafting motions, including writing declarations and collecting supporting exhibits, as well as representing their clients in both Santa Clara County and San Mateo County criminal courts.
They achieved fantastic results, successfully expunging several convictions from their clients’ records. As a result of their work, the clinic’s clients have an extraordinary opportunity to move on with their lives, gain or maintain employment, and put their history with the criminal justice system behind them.
Both Hamida and Corinne are pictured here in San Mateo County Superior Court.
