PROGRAM EXTENDED TO MAY 31, 2020
Sieben Edmunds Miller PLLC is excited to announce that we will offer FREE criminal expungement legal services to those who have lost their job due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Thousands of Minnesotans live under a cloud because of a past mistake. While many individuals with prior criminal records can go on to successful careers, the COVID-19 Pandemic has now caused many of them fall back into joblessness. Then suddenly that long-forgotten criminal record comes roaring back as they try to reenter the workforce and submit to background checks.
We Really Are Offering Free Expungement of a Criminal Offense
This is where Sieben Edmunds Miller comes in. Our law firm practices exclusively in the areas of criminal defense and personal injury. Part of our criminal defense practice includes representation of former or new clients seeking expungement of past criminal records. Now, as all of us try to navigate this new reality under the pandemic, we want to do our part to help our neighbors get through this difficult time. We will use our experience and expertise to help those who have lost their jobs and we are going to do it for free.
How You Qualify for our Free Expungement Service
As mentioned, there are thousands of people across Minnesota that have a criminal record of some kind. We know that we cannot help everyone. So, the following criteria must be met in order to qualify for our free service:
- Cases in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Goodhue, Hennepin, Ramsey, Rice, Scott, and Washington Counties
- Must meet statutory criteria for expungement (Minnesota Statutes Chapter 609A)
- Repeat DWIs and DWIs within the last 10 years are excluded

Even if you don’t fully qualify for the free program, we encourage you to contact our Sieben Edmunds Miller team of attorneys. In normal times, expungement legal representation is typically in the range of $3,000-4,000 through our law firm. We will still offer reduced fee representation to those that do not meet the criteria for our free service.
We look forward to the day we can all say that the pandemic is over and that everyone can get back to work. But in the meantime, as so many of our friends and neighbors have lost their jobs due to COVID-19 and are forced to put themselves back on the job market, we want to do what we can to help.
