Expungement, Shielding & Vacatur
Below you’ll find links to previously recorded trainings and other materials related to criminal record relief. For a list of upcoming trainings, please visit our events calendar. If you have any questions or need additional information, please reach out to Chris Sweeney, Workforce Development Attorney, at 443-451-4094 for expungement or shielding, and Heather Heiman, Human Trafficking Prevention Project Manager, at 443-451-4075.
Note to volunteers: MDExpungement.com and the MDExpungement Chrome extension are currently unavailable due to internal changes made to the Maryland Case Search website. MVLS is working to address this issue as soon as possible.
Important note: Legislation that went into effect Summer 2021 prohibits Maryland Case Search from displaying any charges that resulted in nolle prosequi, acquittal, or dismissal. Cases where all charges resulted in one of these dispositions have been removed from the site entirely. Please see the materials below (‘New Expungement Procedure’) for information about filing expungements under these new rules.
