I would just like to thank you for all you did for me while I was going through my divorce. You were very kind and compassionate. You always made sure you had a tissue on hand because you knew I was going to cry! You have the patience of a saint and a heart of gold! Thanks Matt, for always taking the time to listen and make me feel like I was your only client! I would definitely recommend you to any of my friends!!!
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.
Contact the office at (231) 747-9663 or email Attorney Matthew Kacel at [email protected] for an appointment.
