I have never done this, but it likely requires a lawsuit filed against the State department that maintains these records. A general civil litigator can handle it. It would cost approximately $750 in costs and the fees would like be hourly at whatever rate the attorney charges. Probably best to try and find someone who will do it for a flat fee of $1000 or less.
