Mission

Anyone who has paid their debt to society should be allowed to go through life without the stigma of a criminal record following him or her.  Employment opportunities are often lost for qualified applicants who have a criminal history.  I am committed to helping Hoosiers who want to leave their criminal record in the past and move on to a better future.

Services

Legal representation for expungements is provided for a flat fee.  So you know exactly what it will cost up front. 

Fees depend on several factors, including the number of convictions and whether the convictions occurred in multiple counties.
