  • Kelly Restores Gun Rights and then Seals Record


    Ten years earlier, Kelly’s client was convicted of Felony Fifth Degree Sale (Marijuana) and Felony Fifth Degree Possession (Ecstasy). Both charges were later dropped down to misdemeanors, but they had drastic impacts on the client’s life, causing him to lose his gun rights and consistently holding him back from employment opportunities. Kelly sought solutions to both problems, petitioning the court both for a restoration of his firearm rights and for an expungement. After presenting a strong case for how her client had rehabilitated and was not a threat, the client’s gun rights were restored and then his expungement was granted. The client can now move forward with his life without these offenses hanging over him.

  • Kelly Restores Gun Rights for Client with Juvenile Theft Adjudication


    When Kelly’s client was 14 years old, he stole a snowblower from an open garage. He was adjudicated delinquent of Felony Third Degree Burglary, resulting in a lifetime loss of firearm rights. After the client’s offense, he worked on changing the direction of his life. Over twenty years later, he was a father of two and had a steady job. He hoped to be able to hunt with friends and to teach his daughters firearms safety. He sought Kelly’s help in restoring his rights. Kelly successfully convinced the Court that her client had rehabilitated and was not a threat to public safety, and the client’s rights were thus restored.

  • Kelly Keegan Clarifies Client is not Prohibited from Possessing Firearms


    Kelly Keegan’s client had a conviction for Gross Misdemeanor Threats of Violence. Despite receiving a permit to purchase, he was denied the purchase of a firearm because he had an Identification for Firearms Sales (IFFS) flag from the FBI for his conviction. After digging into his case and determining that he was not prohibited from possessing firearms, Kelly worked with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to clear his IFFS flag. This will allow her client to purchase a firearm without issue.
