Kalamazoo Expungement Lawyers

We Can Clear Your Record and Set Aside Convictions

If you were convicted of a crime or accepted a plea agreement, the Kalamazoo attorneys of Willis Law may be able to secure the expungement of the charge from your criminal record. Expungement can make a world of difference to you in the future. A criminal record can prevent you from getting a job, a promotion or a place to live. Expungement can clear your record — but only once and only in certain circumstances.

Expungement is the legal process of setting aside a conviction. After an expungement, you can legally answer "No" to the question: "Have you ever been convicted of a crime?" Expungement is an important means of protecting your future, especially when it comes to seeking employment or educational opportunities, including scholarships.

Please contact the offices of Willis Law in Kalamazoo, Paw Paw or Grand Rapids and tell us about your situation.

A One-Time Opportunity

Effective in 2015, Michigan law allows certain misdemeanor and felony convictions to be expunged five years after the date of the completion of the sentence. Most crimes can be expunged, but there are exceptions. For instance, any motor vehicle code violations, such as drunk driving, cannot be removed. Contact our office to determine whether your conviction(s) are eligible for expungement.

Under our current law, you can expunge one eligible felony, so long as you have no other felonies on your record and no more than two misdemeanors, as defined by MCL 780.621. Alternatively, if you have two and only two eligible misdemeanors, you can now have both convictions removed!
