“Criminal records oftentimes can be an impediment to obtaining employment and housing, which can adversely affect a person’s health,” said Marsha Williams, Attorney at Williams, McClernan, and Stack, LLC. “Expunging qualified criminal records can open up opportunities for people to have a better quality of life which is why Williams, McClernan, & Stack, LLC, is pleased to partner with the St. Mary’s County Health Department to provide expungement services to St. Mary’s County residents.”

“People trying to get a fresh start in their life sometimes find it difficult to get a job or even stable housing because of a poor decision from their past, even though they may have already been rehabilitated from their crime,” said Dr. Meena Brewster, St. Mary’s County Health Officer. “Not having a job or steady housing impacts their ability to take care of their health. Helping people to become productive citizens and stay off the streets is important to advancing health equity in our community.”
