Restore Your Rights
Three Ways to Restore Your Rights
The last step of the Lohrke Law process is to give you a copy of your cleaned-up criminal background check.
The failed war on drugs brought a lot of good people down and left felony records in its wake. Many law-abiding citizens have criminal records affect them later in life. Rights Restoration is the flip side of the criminal justice system. It allows people to get their rights back.
Rights Restoration changes lives immediately. New housing and job opportunities open up. Volunteering at your child’s school becomes possible. Your rights are restored.
When a record is expunged, the crime is deleted. Records are destroyed. Criminal history is erased. When a felony conviction is reduced to a misdemeanor, you are no longer a felon.
When firearm rights are restored, you can purchase and possess a firearm.
Lohrke Law primarily uses three Oregon laws to restore client rights.
- Expungement is available for marijuana crimes and many drug crimes. It is available for arrests that did not result in a conviction. It is also available for most non-traffic misdemeanors and Class C felonies.
- Felony Reduction to Misdemeanor is available to reduce most class C felonies to misdemeanor convictions.
- Firearm rights restoration allows a judge to restore firearm rights to people who have earned them back.
Many criminal histories are complicated. Lohrke Law is experienced at digging into the deepest court archives to find what is needed. Our thorough research saves money for clients by avoiding needless legal work or missing important information that affects your case.
