For over 30 years, we have successfully petitioned to remove and expunge past criminal convictions and helped persons gain a fresh start for their futures.

A criminal record can prevent job and housing opportunities, student loan approval, acceptance to schools and universities, and more.  In many cases, following a mandatory waiting period, generally 5 years after your last day of probation, or discharge of parole, a court can set aside a criminal conviction, or “expunge” it.  If granted, the previous conviction is set aside, removed from public record, and a person may honestly say they have not been convicted of a crime. Getting a conviction expunged can be a complex process, but our office can guide you through it.  

I Have a Felony Conviction in Washtenaw County and a Misdemeanor Conviction in Chelsea, MI.  Can I still Get an Expungement?

Expungements have certain eligibility requirements in Michigan.  If attempting to expunge a felony, you cannot have more than 1 felony conviction and not more than 2 misdemeanor convictions.  If attempting to expunge misdemeanors, you must not have any felony convictions and not more than 2 misdemeanor convictions. Offenses that were assigned a deferred judgement status, may still be considered convictions for purposes of determining how many offenses you have on your record.

I Have a Conviction in Washtenaw County, MI But Now Live Out of State.  Do I Have to Appear in Michigan to Get an Expungement?

Applications for expungements must be filed in the court in which the conviction(s) originated.  However, an attorney can often appear on behalf of a client who has relocated.
