Experienced Attorney Who Can Help With Criminal Record Expungement In Dakota County

Many of us have made mistakes in the past. Most of us try to learn from our mistakes and use that experience to build a better future for ourselves. Having a criminal conviction on your record is a type of mistake that can be very hard to leave behind. Even if you were never convicted, arrest records and other types of judicial records can create headaches for years to come.

Criminal records can prevent you from being able to:

  • Secure gainful employment
  • Secure a lease for an apartment

Where you work and where you live are two central aspects of people's lives. Having a criminal record can cause tremendous difficulties in both of those areas for a very long period of time.

Securing an expungement or having your criminal record sealed is the best way to be able to put those mistakes behind you.

Major Changes In The Law In 2015

The field of people who will be eligible for expungement or record sealing is dramatically expanding on January 1, 2015.
