Free Expugement for Veterans
Scott King Group to Offer Free Expugements for Veterans
MERRILLVILLE | The Scott King Group, a Northwest Indiana law firm with its practice concentrated on criminal defense services, will provide legal services for military veterans eligible for expungement of prior criminal histories free of charge beginning Veterans Day, Nov. 11, in Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Newton and Jasper counties. Interested veterans can schedule appointments and provide proof of military service in order to qualify. Attorneys will review the necessary information and if the veteran qualifies for expungement under Indiana law, the necessary documents will be prepared and filed with the court without cost to the veteran. Should a court hearing be needed, the attorney will attend, again without cost to the veteran. “I have seen media accounts and have also had clients describe the challenges faced by many veterans getting appropriate employment after their military service," King said. "There are any number of reasons for these challenges that are outside our expertise, but in this small way we see an opportunity to try to help people who have helped us with their sacrifices.” For more information, visit www.scottkinggroup.com or call (219) 769-6300.
