Customer Question
Hi there. I am...

Hi there. I am wanting to start maybe vacating a convicted charge or maybe even expunging it. I wasn’t sure on which one to start with since I can only vacate one at a time.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Washington State

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

So far I have got my criminal history record as well as the beginning motion package.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That’s the gist of it I believe. Just need some advice on which to start on

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
