4.5 million people have a Georgia criminal history; approximately 40% of adults.

Over two decades ago, Georgia Justice Project began offering criminal records services after seeing firsthand the barriers caused by a criminal record for our clients.

We assist with:

  • Record restriction and sealing, commonly known as expungement.
  • Record corrections
  • Pardons

In some instances, we may be able to help with:

  • Occupational licensing denial due to a criminal record

It is required to attend a GJP “First Fridays” session before applying for GJP’s services. These sessions occur on the first Friday of every month, and include information on how to read your record, what is eligible for expungement in Georgia, how to apply for a pardon, and how to apply to GJP’s services.
