I handle cases involving family law, employment law, and civil rights law. The nature of Avvo means that you have provided no documentation or full case details; therefore, any answer cannot be relied upon as legal advice. I am not your attorney. This post is not legal advice, but instead contains general educational information. Please do not act or refrain from acting based upon what you read in this post.

If you have specific legal questions, you should contact an attorney in your state for assistance.
If you want to have a conviction sealed (we don't normally do expungements in Ohio, even though we all use the word) and you have another conviction, you really should have an experienced attorney
review the case with you.
I have had many potential clients walk into my office asking to retain me to file an appeal of a trial court's denial of a motion to seal because they mishandled it on their own. It's much easier to do something the right way the first time, rather than make a rookie mistake and permanently damage your chances of having a conviction sealed.
Meet with an experienced criminal defense attorney and see if you are eligible for sealing.
