And an attorney knows how to handle the multiple factors the court will consider when analyzing your expungement case.


Minnesota Expungement Process

Minnesota Expungement cases are a complicated process. The State will routinely object to expunging your record. Hiring an expungement attorney makes the process significantly easier as we know how to present your case in the most appealing way. Having our attorneys represent you will also guarantee that you will not miss months or even years of opportunities because your case was not strong enough without our expert assistance.

The process in Minnesota begins by petitioning the court for an expungement in the county in which your case occurred. The petition contains all the necessary details from your case that the court needs, as well as arguments in favor of the court granting your case. This includes details of what you have done to improve your life and decrease your likelihood of committing future crimes. The court will review the petition and a judge will make a decision as to whether or not you are deserving. Our expungement attorneys will represent you at any hearings and fight on your behalf.


Proven success through over 30 years of

combined experience.
