On January 12, 2015, Governor Snyder signed House Bill No. 4186, a new law that dramatically changes the expungement law in the State of Michigan.

The new law takes immediate effect and allows people convicted of a nonviolent FELONY AND TWO MISDEMEANORS to get the felony, two misdemeanors, or all three expunged from their record. There are restrictions but the new law is a vast expansion of the expungement law. The previous law only allowed expungement of one criminal offense (whether it be a felony or misdemeanor).

I have spoken with hundreds of clients over the years I have been practicing that could not get a misdemeanor or felony expunged because of multiple convictions. This change in the law may allow those individuals to now be eligible for an expungement of a felony, misdemeanor, or, in some cases, both.

I encourage any and all clients and friends, family members, or acquaintances of clients who may be affected by this law to contact the office as soon as possible to see if we can help finally expunge a previous conviction.
