Expungements

Expungements are a way to have a criminal record removed from the books and cleared under your name. While the case will still exist in the records of the court, the criminal conviction or plea will not show up when a background check is done in your name. If you have a conviction that you are hoping to have expunged, contact our office today. We are here to help you work through this process, and would enjoy putting our experience to work for you.

Having a criminal record has a more profound impact on your life as a whole than most people realize. When you are living with a criminal record, no matter how small or how distant in the past, you will likely see a number of negative side effects. Those include -

  • Difficulty finding good employment
  • Harder time getting credit
  • Limits on renting or leasing a place to live
  • Voting restrictions
  • Trouble obtaining professional licenses in some disciplines

Not all criminal convictions are eligible for expungement, so you need to consult with an experienced law firm to discuss your chances. If you served time in state prison because of your crime, you will not be able to have that record expunged. However, for misdemeanor offenses, or felonies that didn’t result in state prison time, you may be successful in your effort.

Contact our offices today for a free consultation with our talented and friendly staff. We understand how important it is to you to get these records erased, and we will do everything we can to make that happen. We look forward to your call.
