MADISON – Legal Tune-Up, a new, mobile-friendly technology tool is now available to help Wisconsin residents overcome barriers caused by criminal and eviction records.

Legal Tune Up was created to help individuals, who have criminal records, obtain or improve their employment or housing opportunities.

While finding trustworthy responsible individuals is desirable, those who have past minor offenses or dismissed charges often find themselves quickly weeded out.
