Okemos & Michigan Expungement Attorneys
Clearing a Record in Lansing or Ingham County?
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

up in most background checks. In many cases, you can honestly state that
you have not been convicted or arrested for a crime.
