About Us

Our History

Mark Arneson and Jon Geffen formed Arneson & Geffen, PLLC in December 2009. Arneson & Geffen is dedicated to providing results-oriented and high-quality representation to individuals.

Our Experience

Our attorneys have more than three decades of combined experience helping individuals seal their criminal records and defending individuals in criminal matters. We represent individuals requesting expungement in District Courts in the twin cities and around the State of Minnesota. We understand the important role that criminal records play in job searches, rental applications, professional licensing, and more. We also have a deep knowledge of where criminal records are located and how to help our clients seal all criminal records.

In addition to criminal expungements, A&G practices in other areas, including:

  • Criminal Defense;
  • Licensing disputes with the Department of Human Services including maltreatment determinations, disqualifications, set asides, variances, and background studies;
  • Family law; and
  • Business law.
