MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn., April 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sieben Edmunds Miller PLLC is pleased to announce the launch of its Peacetime Emergency Free Expungement Program. The firm's attorneys developed this service in response to COVID-19 and its widespread economic impact. This program aids clients who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic in obtaining a criminal expungement free of charge. Expungement of past criminal convictions will help these individuals have greater success in finding new employment or housing.
"As a firm, we strive to give back to our community," Partner Kevin Sieben said. "It's troublesome to see individuals out of work through no fault of their own, and with an old criminal conviction it can be a struggle to find a new job or to move. By offering free expungement services to members of our community, we hope to help alleviate that burden."
Free expungement services will be offered by the firm through the month of April. For those who qualify, a criminal defense attorney will assist clients in filing an expungement petition with the court, obtaining a court date, and presenting their argument before a judge. Interested parties can find more information and determine their eligibility on the firm's website.
"To 'expunge' a criminal offense is to remove it completely from your record," said Partner, Sam Edmunds. "In law, expungement is the process by which a record of criminal charges is sealed. With an expungement, the individual should be treated as though the criminal charge had never occurred, essentially removing it from their record," he concluded.

The firm maintains a reputation for achieving positive results and substantial settlements for its clients throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. Its office is located in Mendota Heights, Minnesota.
