The APEX staff and volunteers are not attorneys and are not working with an attorney, and therefore cannot give you legal advice. If you are in need of legal advice, you will need to consult with an attorney.
In addition, due to the fact that APEX staff and volunteers are not attorneys, none of the statements that you make are privileged communications. This should not present any issues with regard to pardon and expungement applications, but it can become an issue if you have pending charges. If you make admissions with regard to open charges, the APEX staff member of volunteer could be called into court and forced to testify against you. As such, if you have pending charges, you may notify an APEX staff member or volunteer of that fact, but you must not discuss any details about those charges, other than the fact that you have them.
