How much will it cost to hire a lawyer for an expungement in Pennsylvania? VIDEO

The cost to hire a lawyer for an expungement in Pennsylvania can vary. It will be based on how involved the expungement of the person's record would be. Does it involve one case, more than one case? Does it involve one county in Pennsylvania, multiple counties in Pennsylvania? If there's more than one case, that's certainly a consideration.

It will depend on whether there's a likelihood of an objection from the district attorney's office, and in a sense of whether there would be a contested hearing on the matter. Thankfully, if the matter is handled properly and effectively and steps are taken as needed to try to get the district attorney office's consent, a contested hearing could potentially be avoided in many, if not most instances where it's a matter of going through the expungement process itself largely, say, based on the pleadings, which allows for quicker and smoother process for somebody seeking to clear up their record.

The cost to hire a lawyer will also depend on the lawyer's experience in such matters and whether they handle the cases personally or if they, say, have someone else handle the client's matter, an associate attorney or even a paralegal, because it's important to make certain that the expungement process go as best as possible for someone who's trying to clear up their record, because something is at stake, a person's trying to clear their record so that they could better their career or employment opportunities return or go back to school.
