About Louisiana Expungement Law
In the state of Louisiana, the Legislature has adopted uniform rules, procedures and forms for the expungement of criminal records. While the Legislature’s intent was to streamline the expungement process, making it easier for individuals to obtain an expungement, the forms and procedures are still very complicated and can be very difficult to sort through without the guidance of a skilled Louisiana expungement attorney. At LEAAC, we understand just how complex the expungement process can be. We provide our clients with clear and concise explanations of the law and have created a comprehensive resource center on Louisiana expungement laws so that people have the information they need to make informed decisions about the legal options that may be available to them.
