How to get authorization to return to Canada?

When we last left off, my spouse was denied entry to Canada due to criminal inadmissibility.
Since then, my spouse got paperwork from CA to prove that his record was expunged and that he does not have a felony background.

Now that he has this paperwork:
- What is the best/quickest way to get authorization to return to Canada?
- What is the best/quickest way to get a work permit? He has an LMO with an expiry date of 2013-08-16. The LMO doc has, "... will immediately inform Service Canada of any subsequent changes related to the foreign workers' terms and Conditions of employment, as described in the positive Labour Market Opinion letter and annex." Can the employeer extend the expiry date?
- How can he be assured that the next time he attempts to enter Canada that he will not be detained? The last time they denied entry they told him that if he attempted to enter without everything in order he may be detained.
- Can he walk into the visa office in NY or LA office with his documents and talk to an immigration officer to get this resolved?
Would hiring an immigration lawyer help at this point? I suggested that, but he doesn't think this is the type of thing immigration lawyers have experience with. The immigration lawyer who helped with the LMO originally failed to catch any problem with the criminal record.
