WHAT IS AN EXPUNGEMENT MOTION?  HOW CAN A MINNESOTA EXPUNGEMENT LAWYER HELP ME?

Generally, a Minnesota expungement lawyer is an attorney who meets with a client, gets all the facts, case history, and the history of the potential client, prepares and files an expungement motion, and appears in court to argue in favor of the eventual client. Our Law Office has not been denied any expungement petition filed on behalf of our client because we do thorough research before signing on the client in the first place.

An expungement motion is a request asking the Court to seal all records concerning a crime the person has either pled guilty to or was dismissed. Although an expungement motion can be prepared and filed by anyone, expungement law and proceeding are complicated. An expungement lawyer may be your best weapon in the battle to seal or expunge your record. That is because in some cases, about twelve (12) governmental agencies may have an interest in retaining your criminal record or charge. Some of these agencies routinely fight to keep your record public.

Expungement of a record can mean sealing a record, but there are important distinctions. While an arrest or citation not resulting in a conviction in many cases can be expunged, not every conviction can be expunged. The alternative may be to have the court record sealed.  It is advisable to speak to an experienced expungement lawyer or expungement attorney about an expungement motion. Minnesota law does permit some convictions to be sealed but only after a certain period has passed. To determine whether your arrest, citation, or conviction can be expunged or sealed you should call an experienced expungement lawyer.

The exact type of expungement motion depends on how your criminal case was resolved. It is important to remember that an expungement motion seeking to seal a person’s record is referred to as an ‘extra-ordinary’ measure, meaning Courts are not given to grant them without some legal justification. In addition, Minnesota’s Expungement laws and procedures are very complicated and must be followed precisely before a judge will even consider hearing the request.
