Record Expungement in Michigan
A criminal charge or conviction can have lasting negative consequences, long after your sentence has been carried out.

- Offenses that are driving related
- Offenses that carry up to life in prison as a penalty
- CSC offenses except 4th Degree
- All offenses where there is more than one
