This week the lawyers are joined by Erik Atas who is a criminal defense attorney at the firm Zirkin and Schmerling.  Erik also spends a tremendous amount of his free time volunteering in the community by doing expungment clinics at homeless shelters, drug rehab facilities, and with the bar. Erik has expunged over 7000 cases in the last two years alone! He also runs the state-wide MyLaw mock trial competition for high school students.  We aren’t sure how Erik finds enough hours in the day!

Today the guys talk about expungments, war stories from the trenches about Jeremy and Kurt from their ASA days, as well as a throw way back to tennis competitions where the Atas brothers stole the show from Jeremy.  It’s a great discussion and powerful talk from people who see redemption on a daily basis.
