If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony in Michigan, you may be experiencing difficulty in your everyday life - getting a decent job, qualifying for professional licenses, applying for housing, and in your day-to-day relationships. The burden of a criminal conviction can follow you for the rest of your life, long after you have served your time and paid your dues to society.
But it doesn't have to be this way. At White Law PLLC, we can assist clients with the expungement process to have their conviction cleared from their record. Once a conviction has been cleared, it will not show up in most background checks. In many cases, you can honestly state that you have not been convicted or arrested for a crime.
If you are interested in learning more about expunging a conviction, we can explain your options and help you determine your eligibility. A fresh start is possible, so get started by calling (517) 774-2274.
In Michigan, you are allowed to set aside one felony or misdemeanor conviction if you meet the restrictions. It is helpful to have a criminal defense attorney assess your unique situation and determine whether you qualify for expungement.
If your expungement petition has been previously denied, you must wait three years before bringing another petition. This is why it is important to adequately prepare and submit a convincing petition with the help of an expungement attorney.
Our Okemos & Michigan criminal defense lawyers can provide hands-on guidance through each step of the petition process. From assessing your eligibility to helping you prepare an effective petition, we are here for you.
