Expungement and Driver’s License Restoration
If you have previously been convicted of a crime, Michigan law allows for certain crimes to be removed from your criminal record or expunged. Likewise, if your driver’s license has been revoked for any reason, there is a process of appealing to have it reinstated. The attorneys at our office are experienced in both criminal record expungement and in driver’s license restoration.
