Pardons & Civil Rights Restorations

What are the benefits of a pardon?

  • Restore Firearms Rights: A full pardon will restore your right to possess a firearm and apply for a concealed or open carry license.
  • Employment: Many professions require special licenses. A Pardon may allow you to become eligible for professional licensure.
  • Voting & Jury Duty: You will be able to once again uphold civic duties such as voting and sitting on a jury.
  • Liquor Licenses: In order to be eligible to get a liquor license, you must be pardoned of all felony convictions.
  • Reduce Negative Stigma: A pardon will help you greatly reduce the stigma of your criminal record and move past your mistakes.

What is a Pardon?

A pardon is normally a sign of forgiveness from the State, and is granted in recognition of the applicant’s acceptance of responsibility for the crime and established good conduct for a period of time after conviction or incarceration. While a pardon will not clear a conviction from your criminal record, it will restore your civil rights such as the right to own a gun or vote. The pardon process is extensive and can take anywhere from six months to one year.

Even if you are granted a pardon, your past criminal record may continue to affect you. However, a pardon can go a long way in assisting you in getting rid of the stigma of your criminal record and gaining employment. Under some circumstances, you are only eligible for an expungement after you have been granted a pardon. Consequently, a pardon is often a stepping-stone towards receiving an expungement and completely clearing your criminal record.

Am I eligible for a pardon?

1. You have been convicted of a crime.
2. You have no pending charges.
3. You are not currently incarcerated.
4. All sentences have ended, including supervision (some exceptions)
5. You have not applied for a Pardon within the past year.

David saved my son's life!

David came highly recommended by a dear friend of mine and personal colleague of Mr. McKenzie. Hiring David was one of the best decisions I've ever made! David is confident, professional and smart! My only son, was charged with three counts of armed robbery. (Thank god he didnt physically hurt anybody.) Each count punishable with up to life in prison! As a result of Davids legal intervention my son was essentially given a new lease on life. My son will have the opportunity to become a decent and productive member of society. Thank you David!

Trusted, capable and compassionate legal counsel

Nobody every plans to get caught holding. Furthermore, I don't need to tell you that it was a huge embarrassment to myself and my family when I did. But I tell you what - That patrol officer threw me in Muskogee County for simple possession of 1/4 oz of Marijuana without hesitation or consideration of the awkward conversations I might be having with potential Clients, Boards, Vendors, and the Government during any potentially forthcoming background investigations. So I decided to do something about it and looked online for a local expungement attorney - and boy am I glad I did!

I was very impressed with the level of professionalism of Riley during the handling of my expungement. He was alway easy to get in touch with and patiently answered any questions that I had about the process. He really made me feel as if he cared about helping me out and getting my records cleaned up.

If you too have made a mistake in the past keep it there. Riley can get it done for you, truly like it never even happened. To anyone looking for an expungement attorney I could not recommend Riley any higher.

The respected lawyer you want when you need results

David McKenzie represented me in a difficult case in which I needed solid representation and a lot of time put into it right off the bat. It was an usual involvement I had in a criminal matter, and Mr. McKenzie worked efficiently to save me a huge headache and get me out of a tough situation where I was wrongfully accused. Mr. McKenzie not only provided excellent legal guidance and strategy in succeeding in my case, but he also made me feel at ease with his experience and expertise, which allowed me to focus on other priorities in my life, rather than worry about my case. Mr. McKenzie is so well respected in Oklahoma City that my case was disposed of quickly and completely to my satisfaction. He's the kind of lawyer you want when you need results. His connections with other attorneys and judges, and his relationships with prosecutors make him a go-to attorney in Oklahoma. I would recommend him to every friend and family member I know looking for solid representation.
