Colleen LeFevour | Expungement Lawyer
Licensed in Indiana and Illinois
People deserve a second chance and the fact is, most people will do whatever it takes to get that chance. As your attorney, I will do everything I can to help you get that second chance, so you can have a fulfilling future, rather than be perpetually stuck in the system.
I have seen the impact that a second chance can have on individuals, children, and families. I’ve helped a client with a felony offense get their record expunged. Prior to expungement, my client pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering while being a single mother, but was limited due to her criminal record. Now, with the expungement, she received numerous job offers within the field of her Bachelor’s degree, secured employment, and has secured housing for her and her daughter.
I’ve worked with various clients with a variety of backgrounds and am here to help you. You don’t have to live with the shadow of your past hanging over you. You don’t have to miss opportunities to better yourself and move forward with your life. I will help you achieve the best outcome possible for you, whatever the circumstances.

As an expungement lawyer, my job is to protect you
As your expungement lawyer, the most important job I have is to ensure that you are completely knowledgeable about the consequences you are facing. Although this process may seem nerve wracking, I will make sure that you understand Indiana’s expungement laws and your options. I will defend your constitutional rights and advocate for the best resolution.
I’ve dedicated my career to ensuring my clients receive justice
I always wanted to learn the ins and outs of the criminal justice system, to know what was going on, and to figure out how to help. My undergraduate studies focused on criminal justice; however, I realized that there would be limitations to how much help I could provide to people, especially those seeking a second chance after entering the system. I decided to pursue a law degree and become a Criminal Defense Attorney, so I could work with people to protect their rights and make sure they received a second chance.
While in undergraduate and law school, I was employed with the Rosemont Public Safety Department in Rosemont, Illinois. I also clerked at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in the Criminal Prosecutions Bureau and clerked for the Domestic Violence and Family Law Clinic at The John Marshall Law School.
I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice from Concordia University Chicago in 2015 and attended University of Illinois Chicago School of Law and obtained my Juris Doctor Degree.
