If your record isn’t exactly spotless, the opportunity of a clean slate may appeal to you. Criminal expungement in Oklahoma is the legal process by which a person can have their criminal record sealed or erased from public view. In essence, this means that the record will no longer be available to the public, including potential employers or landlords, and will not appear on your background check. The process of criminal expungement in Oklahoma is generally pretty standard. Criminal expungement doesn’t operate like a legal pardon. Unlike pardons, expungement proceedings must be ordered by a judge or court. They typically take place in state court and the procedures may vary by location.
There’s a myth out there that criminal records are automatically expunged after 5-10 years. For Oklahoma specifically, records on file with OSBI and the Oklahoma State Courts Network don’t just include criminal convictions. They also note arrests, pending charges, and dismissed charges after the completion of a deferred sentence. It's important to understand that the expungement process can potentially be complex, so it's often important to work with an attorney who has experience handling expungements in Oklahoma. When in doubt, it’s beneficial to have the record expunged even if the case against you was dismissed. Call us today to set up a free consultation with one of our attorneys at 405.701.5355.
If you want a complete expungement of both the court and arrest records in your case, or of any other associated record, you have the affirmative obligation to file a civil petition to expunge your records. Although it is not required to have an attorney for criminal expungement in Oklahoma, it is highly recommended to have one. Here are some reasons why:

I cannot thank Karen Pearson and her team enough for all the support they've shown me throughout my unfortunate divorce. With all the twists and turns thrown at my situation both in my personal life, but also my military career. This team always made me feel as though my case took priority. I will forever be grateful for them and highly recommend either of them to represent you as you drudge through your specific situation. Thank you again to Ball Morse Lowe team for everything you did on my behalf.

I felt like I mattered. I felt like what I had to say was important. Glenn was thoughtful, encouraging and understanding. She helped me navigate the process and validated my thoughts about things I was not sure. Thank you Glenn!!! It was great working with you!
I turned to Ball Morse Lowe PLCC when I needed my mother's estate probated in Oklahoma. It involved mineral rights and I live in California and my mother had not lived in OK for over 60 years. I wanted a firm that would do this correctly and be reasonable in cost. Brian Hill was a pleasure to work with. He and his staff were professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They made the experience of probate painless, explained things as we went along, and were clear in their expectation of what they would need from me to move the process forward. I am so glad I found them and appreciate deeply all they accomplished on my behalf.
