If I have a court case that I am trying to re-open, is filing a motion the best way to go about it and what are my chances of getting it re-opened and taken to trial?

I got a felony plea and when I had my court date the judge told me that I should come back and get the felony dropped. I have almost completed my probation and need to get this felony dropped off my record.

If you wish to re-open a criminal matter for an issue to be addressed you need to file a motion with the court seeking the relief that you want. It is best to hire a criminal defense attorney to assist you.

As to the chances of success as to your motion, I am not at liberty to give an opinion since I do not know the facts of your matter.
