Fantastic Experience
The expungement process can be extremely stressful and feel very overwhelming, thankfully, I hired Mr. Herman and he made the whole process a breeze. We never even met in person. I was able to fill out the information he needed over email, and he did the rest. He is very knowledgeable about the process and the laws surrounding when and how someone can apply for an expungement. He informed me and prepared me for everything that was going to happen, and he got the job done! Super easy and stress-free experience. I would highly recommend working with him.

Fast, efficient, and successful
Mr. Herman took care of this matter in as fast as humanly possible. Top notch communication skills, contacting me via phone with any major changes to my case or with any questions I had. Having Mr. Herman in my corner allow me to rest easy knowing someone was aware of the need for timeliness in my case. We got the exact result he had brought up during our initial consultation and did so with minimal effort on my end saving me from having any further hearings. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Expungement
Mark helped me expunge a dismissed case that another attorney told me would be a bad idea. Mark was very professional and helped me navigate the confusing legal system. He was quick to answer my phone calls anytime I called him even while he was on vacation. If you truly need someone who believes in you, treat you with compassion and has vast knowledge of the legal system I would choose Mark. Mark went above and beyond and I am truly grateful.

Mr.
Mark is the best attorney one can get when it comes to Expunging records. I was very much worried about my criminal case; it was affecting my growth opportunities in my company. That’s when I approached Mr. Mark, who was very prompt in his response. He reviewed the case, and with his subject matter expertise, meticulously approached it and carefully prepared the documents for expunging my records. Throughout the process, he kept me posted of the progress and what the next steps would be. The very first time I spoke to him, I knew he is the one that can help me. He clearly knows how to approach these cases and he won my confidence right from Day 1. The referee has agreed to expunge my case and it was possible only because of Mr. Mark. It’s a slam dunk. Thanks to Mr. Mark for helping me with this case. I feel grateful to him.

The Kindest Most Caring and Highly Intelligent Attorneys with Civil Commitment Expunges
I have worked in law over 10 years in criminal defense and have met many lawyers. Mark Herman was so humble, kind, non-judgmental of my very messed up situation during COVID craziness with anyone being in the office in the court system. Mark provided me with getting my dismissed "Stay of Commitment" expunged/sealed in Washington and Ramsey. What does that mean to you? No online searches or background checks that can further devastate your life. You can heal and live your life happy and serene. Thank you Mark you certainly were the best every step of the way. A true blessings.

Thank you so much Mark for helping me win my case. I truly appreciate it. Id recommend you to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney. He is very knowledgeable and well spoken while in and out of the court room. If I hade a question he would answer it to the best of his ability. He was always available for me when I called. He also emailed me everything I needed in a timely manner. He called right away when he received the email of my expungement . I was so happy and elated with the news. He really takes care of his clients, I'm glad I came across Mark on the internet. With so many to chose from I took a chance on Mark and he sure came through for me.

Expungement
Mark was absolutely AMAZING! I had 3 cases and all 3 were expunged! I called multiple lawyers before calling Mark who all told me the same thing that my record was not eligible for expungement and it wasn’t worth trying. When I called Mark he was very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions. He went above and beyond for all of my cases. I am forever grateful he changed mine and my daughter’s life!!

Expungement - Mark is your best advocate!!
Mark Herman was retained and super helpful in walking me through the process of requesting an expungement hearing which ultimately the conviction was expunged! Mark was great, understanding, never judgmental and talked me through the entire process with outstanding communication with professionalism and respect. I would highly suggest you contact Mark Herman as he is an expert in this area, will save you a ton of time, and do his best to advocate on your behalf!! Mark is highly recommended!!! Others did "promise" things that I know they wouldn't have been able to deliver on. Mark is transparent and upfront out of the gate; you are making a great choice in retaining Mark for his services!!
