Criminal Record Expungement Process

Most of our clients need their arrest and conviction record sealed (overall criminal history sealed). We begin the process by running a statewide criminal background check on our clients. The background check provides us with their arrest/conviction records throughout the state counties. We file a motion for expungement of an arrest/conviction record in the county in which it occurred and  a court date will be set. Notice of the motion must be provided to the District Attorney’s office, in addition to  the arresting agency, and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

Prior to going to court, we obtain information about our client’s that will help their case. For example, if our clients were previously arrested for assault, we may obtain evidence to present regarding our client’s attendance in anger management classes through the local community college. On the scheduled court date, we advocate on our client’s behalf to have the record sealed. The DA may appear, or a law enforcement officer to contest the sealing. If the motion is granted, your criminal record will be sealed.
