Answers to Your Rights Restoration Questions

At Lohrke Law, we clean up criminal records, restore firearm rights, and restore driver's licenses all over Oregon.

We enjoy what we do and we are good at it. Our pricing is geared to make rights restoration accessible. During a free consultation, we will help determine your eligibility and cost.

The failed war on drugs left a lot of felony records in its wake. Many law-abiding citizens have criminal records that affect them later in life. Rights Restoration is the flip side of the criminal justice system. It allows people to get their rights back. It changes lives immediately. Look at the testimonials and read our reviews to see how.

Hear it from Jesse Lohrke:

What are my rights restoration options?

A few of our services:

Set Aside (Expungement)

Setting aside a conviction erases it from your record. Set aside is available for most felonies and misdemeanors. Arrests that did not result in a conviction can also usually be set aside.

Felony Reduction to Misdemeanor

Most class C felonies can be converted to misdemeanor convictions, resulting in non-felon status.

Firearm Rights Restoration

An Oregon judge can restore a person's Oregon firearm rights when that person proves he or she is not a danger to himself or others.

Oregon Driver’s License Restoration

If your driver's license was revoked for life, after ten years you can petition the court to restore your right to drive.

Relief from Registration

People who register due to juvenile adjudications.

We will help you determine which rights restoration laws apply to your situation.

Lohrke Law helps rights restoration clients all over Oregon and anyone with an Oregon conviction.

They were able to have my history set aside in less time than they said it would take. Now I have a clean slate and I'm now able to go about my life as if the mistakes I made as an young adult never happened. Now instead of being bound by those mistakes I have a new lease on life and a chance to be a participant in society. Thanks again guy's.

I started working with Austin at Lohrke Law last year to expunge a felony and attempt to have one reduced as it wasn't expungable. The entire experience was pleasant and they stayed in contact throughout the process letting me know updates as they happened as the county the charges originated from dragged their feet with paperwork (no fault of the firm.) I'm happy to say that I was able to have my rights restored in Oregon and will work with them again in the future when the time has appropriate amount of time has elapsed to get my license reinstated as well.

We were very fortunate that another law firm referred us to Lohrke law. Jesse Lohrke is on your team from start to finish. We couldn't have hoped for a better attorney because we got the best that day. Thank you Mr. Lohrke for being you!

Jesse was incredible. I've had consults before on the same court issue with other attorneys but they weren't helpful, nor did I gain any new information from them. Jesse Lourke was the 1st attorney to actually read my evidence, my court statement, and was able to give his honest take on it. He gave great advice to make sure my main points were heard in the short time I was given to defend my position. I ended up winning! Thank you so much for giving me the confidence I needed to face this Jesse. And thank you for volunteering your time, generosity, and expertise to disabled veterans like me. Give Jesse a shot, he'll tell it like it is.

I am delighted to recommend Lohrke Law to anyone looking for assistance with legal issues. I had previously contacted another firm for help and was told that they would charge 5X what Lohrke Law wanted and that anyway, I needed to wait a couple of years to move forward. That was just plain wrong.Jesse and his firm got my issue resolved within 10 months for a very reasonable fee. Good communications, excellent results and great follow through! This firm has been the single best Law firm that I have worked with in my 65 years of life.
04:26 17 Sep 22
Jesse was great to deal with. Very clear communication. Told me what to expect, and gave me a timeline up front. If I had a question, someone was always there to take my call and answer questions. Price point seemed reasonable. Great experience overall! Would recommend!

Jesse got it done I can't thank him enough for what he did for me. He shot me straight through the entire process. His team was wonderful. For the first time in 14 years I no longer have a black cloud over my head. It is not a fast process Thanks to local government dragging their feet But as far as lohrke law they are extremely efficient and surprisingly affordable. My biggest regret is not contacting them years ago.

I didn't do an expungement, for many years...thinking it was a difficult, lengthy process! Well, I was wrong! In fact...I paid Lohrke law to take care of it for me...and that's exactly what they did! They did everything for me! It was fairly quick(waiting on agencies) is what takes the most time! My record is now clean, with 0 to no trouble whatsoever...In conclusion...they did exactly what they said they'd do...and if I needed to do it again, I'd definitely use them!

Gun Rights Restored. 47 felony convictions to say it was an up hill battle would be accurate. Elizabeth took the time to listen to my criminal history and past also about me presently and what my argument would be if we were called in front of a judge for a hearing. We (Elizabeth) came up with a plan set about executing that plan and even through the slow courts we (Elizabeth)prevailed. I cannot thank Elizabeth and her team enough. I only gave her 5 stars because I could not give her more.

I had a great experience with Elizabeth. She took care of my dilemma for a very reasonable price and was honest with me throughout the process. She even explained to me at the beginning that my issue was something I could easily do on my own, but I however, do not trust the courts to treat anyone who is poor in a reasonable manner without representation. Decent individuals are hard to come by these days and Liz is surely in that rare category of folks. I am grateful to have found her.
Had a long standing issue that needed to be addressed. Elizabeth gave me a couple of different approaches. She told it would take some time and work. She stayed in contact with me and the results were better than I could ask for. Thank you Lohrke Law for your honest integrity.

I no longer have to register!I called around for several days looking for an attorney that would look at my case. Almost every attorney I spoke to said they couldn't help, or they referred me to a guy named Jesse Lohrke. I finally called Jesse and explained my situation. With confidence he accepted my case and laid out the expectations from day one. He brought his "A" game to the table every time we spoke. This guy knows the law and will FIGHT for his clients. After working with him for a couple months it was time for the hearing. After working with Jesse I was confident and ready to present my case with Jesse to the courts. We did amazing, We won! I was not expecting such a positive outcome. With Jesse's hard work it finally paid off. I no longer have to register as a sex offender (after 20 years of doing so). I also got my charge changed to a Misdemeanor instead of a felony. This has changed my life for the better, and I owe it to Jesse.
