Second Chance for Two Clients

November.19.2012

​We have taken on two cases as a result of our continuing participation in the clinic sponsored by the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights (“LCCR”) of the San Francisco Bay Area. 

First, San Francisco career public finance associate Kimberly Westberry is representing a client convicted of a DUI.  His driver’s license was suspended pending completion of a six-month DUI program.  The client completed the program and has a certificate of completion, but the company that ran the program closed suddenly and never reported the completion to the DMV.  Kimberly will advocate for the client in his request to obtain his license reinstatement. 

Second, a client applied for a pharmacy technician license.  His application was denied in the agency’s discretion due to a misdemeanor conviction for marijuana possession. San Francisco securities litigation associate Suzette Pringle will assist the client in re-applying for the license.  The LCCR clinic offers clients with past criminal records to receive assistance so they may integrate back to society successfully. 

San Francisco litigation counsel Nancy Harris will supervise these matters.
