Pardons, Executive Clemency & Expungement
We all make mistakes. If you find a past misdemeanor or felony criminal record getting in the way of employment, graduate school, owning a firearm, or any other aspect of life, we can help. We go through a process called executive clemency or expungement (remove criminal record), depending on the case.
The process to apply for a pardon or expungement can be complicated and confusing. South Dakota requires many documents that can be challenging and time-consuming to acquire without knowledge of the legal system.
Hiring a lawyer to help with the process and guide you in front of the South Dakota Board of Pardons and Paroles can help ensure you are putting your best foot forward. Our experienced staff will help you prepare a standout application. Additionally, a lawyer will accompany you at your meeting(s) in front of the Board.
