Want a Second Chance? GLG Can Help You Get Your Criminal Record Expunged.

expungement Ann Arbor


The consequences of a criminal conviction can be both long-lasting and life-altering:  Loss of employment or inability to find a job; financial ruin; family/custody/relationship upheaval; and—of course--loss of freedom.  So, for people who have been convicted of misdemeanor and felony offenses, there exists an obvious need to remove that stain once they’ve paid their debt to society.  

The process of removing, or setting aside, a conviction is called an “Expungement.”  This process typically requires some action on the part of the person seeking removal, and often is too confusing, intimidating and restrictive for people to try on their own. 

Attorney Daniel T. Geherin is a former prosecutor and board-certified criminal trial attorney who has been practicing criminal law for 23+ years. Dan fully believes that everyone should be given a second chance, so he works tirelessly and aggressively to help people expunge their convictions and obtain the “clean slate” that the expungement laws were intended to promote.

Each day, Dan and his team field calls from clients looking to expunge:

“What exactly is an “Expungement,” and how does it work?”

“What does the applicant have to do to start the process?”

“How long does it take to get a hearing?”

“Will the expungement hearing be in-person, or via Zoom?”

“Once my conviction is expunged, what will show up on a background search?”

What Exactly is an “Expungement” in Michigan?

criminal defense attorney Ann Arbor

In the last year, there has been a lot of “buzz” about Expungement of Criminal Records in Michigan. In 2020, Michigan passed a series of “clean-slate” initiatives which expanded the eligibility for people to seek expungements, and in many cases, shortened the waiting period to apply. Then, in 2021, the legislature proposed adding OWI convictions to the expungement eligibility list, and the bill will head to the Governor for possible enaction.  

Why so much attention to expungements? The consequences of a criminal conviction can be both long-lasting and life-altering: loss of employment or inability to find a job; financial ruin; family/custody/relationship upheaval; and—of course--loss of freedom.

What does CCW” stand for?

criminal defense attorney Ann Arbor
“CCW” stands for Carrying a Concealed Weapon, and is the criminal statute (MCL 750.22) that prohibits carrying a weapon (including a handgun) in a concealed fashion (on the person or in the vehicle) without obtaining a CPL permit. This is a felony statute, carrying with it up to 5 years in a state prison along with several other collateral consequences.  

Defending CCW charges often requires a multi-level approach.  Learn more here.

What Does “CPL” stand for?

criminal defense attorney Ann Arbor

“CPL” stands for
Concealed Pistol License, and is the license a Michigan resident can obtain to carry a gun in a concealed manner (i.e., in the person’s pocket or clothing; or in the passenger compartment of his vehicle). Obtaining a CPL permit requires paperwork, attendance at classes, and an application and security clearing in the person’s county of application.   

If the person had a CPL in Michigan or another state, there may exist an affirmative defense to the charge. If the person’s CPL expired, there may be arguments on how to defend or effectively negotiate the charge. Contact an experienced criminal defense attorney today to learn your rights!

Board-Certified Criminal Trial Attorney to the Rescue!

board-certified criminal trial attorney Ann Arbor

Every day, in courtrooms throughout Michigan (and even on Zoom screens during the COVID pandemic), cases are won or lost based on the effective or ineffective cross-examination of witnesses.  What is cross-examination? It is the questioning of the other side’s witness(es), typically under oath. This questioning often unearths important information, and when done effectively, can slice open the other side’s case. 

Dan Geherin, owner of the Geherin Law Group PLLC (GLGMichigan) in Ann Arbor, is an ex-prosecutor and board-certified criminal trial attorney with over 24 years’ courtroom experience.  Dan honed his trial and cross-examination skills in the 1990s as a Deputy District Attorney in Los Angeles County, the biggest and busiest prosecutor’s office in the country.  As a prosecutor, Dan was trained to cross-examine criminal defendants to shake out the truth and prove they were lying or had something to hide.

Why is effective cross-examination so important?

board-certified criminal trial attorney Ann Arbor

Witnesses often rehearse their testimony with the prosecutor or with their attorney, and they review previous statements to help them “stick with the script.” It is up to the opponent’s attorney to dig deeper, and to probe areas that prove inconsistency, bias, mistakes and sometimes even deceit. A witness often reveals his or her true character or demeanor when they’re pushed, prodded and confronted about prior inconsistencies. Jurors and judges often make up their minds about a witness’ credibility (and even about the whole case) after watching a cross-examination of a central witness.
