Salisbury to hold expungement clinic in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 17 – State Rep. Abigail Salisbury, D-Allegheny, will host an expungement clinic at the Community Empowerment Association in Pittsburgh from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19.

The clinic will help residents expunge criminal records and seal or pardon past convictions, and the Allegheny County Bar Foundation's Pro Bono Center will provide the legal advice on the processes at the event.

“Minor justice system offenses should not deter or prevent people from pursuing impactful lives,” Salisbury said. “I want to encourage residents looking for a fresh start to attend the clinic and find out how my staff and I can help.”

Salisbury is a nonprofit attorney, served as the executive director of, and taught First Amendment law at the University of Pittsburgh.
