Minnesota Expungements Attorney

HomePractice AreasExpungements

People are often denied employment, housing, or professional licenses based on a mistake in their past that they have learned their lesson from. In Minnesota, an Expungement is the process of going to court to ask a Judge to seal a court record relating to your prior arrest or conviction.

There are two types of expungements in Minnesota; expungement under the court’s “inherent authority” and “statutory” expungement. The difference depends on the final outcome of the case you are seeking to expunge.

Our Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer can help you achive your needs

Whether you were convicted, received a “stay” of your sentence (leading to dismissal at a later time), or the charges were dismissed early on, all relate to which expungement approach to take. Even if your criminal case was dismissed, you will likely still have a public criminal record that indicates you were charged with a crime. Often, potential employers, landlords, and others running your background check do not understand what the dismissal means and focus on the fact that you were charged with the crime. Because of this, expungements are commonly used by people seeking to move forward with a more positive life and reputation.

The Attorneys at Halberg Criminal Defense have extensive experience handling expungements throughout the Twin Cities, and all of Minnesota.
