Navigating Louisiana Revised Statute 44:9 and Articles 893 and 894

The Louisiana laws on expungements are complicated and are revised and amended by the legislature on a yearly basis. The 2012 legislative session was no exception with five Acts enacted impacting La. R.S. 44:9. Navigating the myriad of complexities can be a daunting task for the unawares. The long and ever expanding Louisiana expungement statute as well as Articles 893 and 894 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure provide detailed instructions and requirements for the proper filing of a motion to set aside a conviction and dismissal of the prosecution and the filing of an expungement. Most courts in Louisiana have a preferred format for filing expungements as well as different requirements for what must be attached and what fees must be included when filing. We have experience filing expungements and motions to set aside in parishes throughout Louisiana. Be sure to hire an attorney who understands the expungement statute and the specific requirements of the court where you are filing. For more information visit our website and expungement page.

He did a phenomenal job representing me and was extremely professional in his communication and knowledge of the Louisiana legal system. Thank you so much for helping me.” Richard M.
