What Is Trellis.Law?
Trellis.Law is an aggregator of legal information. Much like other public court record websites (Justia, FindLaw, CourtListener, Unicourt, etc), records that appear on Trellis are in the public domain, which means it’s permissable for them to be published.
Sites like Trellis generally scrape available information on the web to create a huge central database of state trial court data.
Then they organize that data and make it easily searchable for litigators to do research.
Trellis charges a subscription for access to it’s data and it’s not just for lawyers – anyone willing to pay can gain access to their large database of public court records.
As mentioned in the video discussion above, if you’re on Trellis, you’re probably on some of the dozens of other legal aggregator websites, too.
Why Remove Trellis.Law Records?
The problem with public court records on Trellis is they may appear in search results when someone Googles your name or business name.
If you’ve had legal trouble, filed for bankruptcy or been involved in a lawsuit, this might not be the type of thing you want everyone to know about.
We believe you’re entitled to keep your private life to yourself and that’s why you’d want to remove Trellis and other court records that are in the public domain.
We feel it gives you a better chance of explaining yourself, rather than people Googling you and making a snap judgement without hearing your side of the story.
This is just one part of protecting your online reputation.

How Do I Remove A Court Case From Google?
As mentioned above, the main reason why you would want to get a court case removed from Trellis is because it is appearing on Google.
In fact, Trellis isn’t really the problem, because most people don’t even know about the site and will never use it.
Google is the problem.
And as stated on the image above and on the Trellis website, “inquiries related to the visability within Google…should be directed to the.. search engine…”
And the only way Google (in the United States) is going to the remove the record from it’s search results is with a court order.
So, again, if you don’t have a court order sealing the record, you’re back where you started; you need a third party to intervene and get the document removed for you.
Here are a few of the questions we’ve been asked by our clients:
How long does the removal process take?
It takes about a week to remove Trellis Law records.
If and when there are updates to the case and the link updates (with a new link address on Trellis.law), is there a way to permanently remove any links from Trellis.law from ever showing up when my name is searched?
Your original case that we removed won’t show up again, even if its updated. But there is no way to prevent future cases from showing up if you were to get involved in a court case again.
Once the job is completed and payment is received, and then later the link shows up again, what is the course of action then? Would I reach out to you again to remove it at no charge?
It wont show up again, but if but some strange chance it does, we will get it removed again at no charge, or refund you in full if we were unable to.
What does the page look like after removal is complete?
The page will throw a 404 error and say “Page not found,” per image below.
We’ve been asked if the removal applies to Google, Bing, and Yahoo and the answer is yes.
Once your case(s) is/are removed, they will fall out of search results on every single search engine out there – even DuckDuckGo and other obscure search portals.
