About to Graduate? Criminal Record? Better Think Expungements

Logue Law Group

It’s April, which means that college seniors staring down commencement day are preparing for their post-collegiate lives, whether that means deciding on which grad school to attend, where to apply for – or accept – a job, and where to set down roots. I know these seniors are getting advice from everyone right now: Parents, teachers, mentors, and friends are clutch when trying to decide the future when you’re just stepping outside the comfort zone of college. This Morgantown criminal defense lawyer would like to give a little advice, too – not only to my fellow Mountaineers but to students everywhere who are about to embark on the “real world”: If you have one, clear up your criminal record. Things can get crazy in college (and let’s face it, West Virginia University specifically), and students get charged with all kinds of offenses – from disorderly conduct to underage drinking to driving under the influence.

All that information on the charge and/or arrest is then a matter of public record and will be available to every employer and grad school you send a resume or application. I had a client who was almost denied an apartment lease because of a criminal charge that had been dismissed but still appeared on his record. Bad, right? But here’s the good news I wanted to make you aware of: Many charges can be expunged in West Virginia, which means that they will be permanently removed from your record. My firm files expungements all the time for college students and recent graduates who are trying to get a clean slate – and I’d be happy to help you, too. Give me a call and let me know how I can help.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Former Client

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
