A client may usually obtain a copy of his or her state criminal record directly from the state Department of Justice by filling out a form and submitting it.  The completed application should usually include a set of fingerprints and a modest fee.  The client can usually ask for the criminal record to be forwarded directly to the attorney, if desired.  The record generally arrives in about a month.  State procedures vary.  Consult a criminal attorney in the jurisdiction.
