Chase Day Of Service Gives Vets a Second Chance
Illinois Joining Forces, Chase Bank and John Marshall Law School, with technical assistance from IEJF, recently collaborated on a criminal records sealing and expungement clinic for veterans. As part of their annual Day of Service, Chase attorneys worked with John Marshall faculty and students to provide services to 18 veterans over three hours.
Illinois Joining Forces assisted in identifying veterans in need of those services and in shepherding those veterans through the logistics of gathering the necessary documents and ensuring their participation. Cabrini Green Legal Aid also assisted in accessing documents and assisting Chase attorneys.
The event was a success in the eyes of all parties, and the partners are already discussing repeating this clinic model in a few months time.
