If you were found "not guilty" at trial, if your criminal case was dismissed, or if you successfully completed a Pretrial Diversion program, you may be eligible to expunge all records from that arrest and court case.
An expunction causes ALL records related to your arrest and your court case to be destroyed and erased, and allows you to deny the occurrence of the arrest and court case for all purposes (including on applications for employment and housing). It is one of the best legal remedies available, and it literally "wipes the slate clean." However, you must meet certain eligibility requirements in order to expunge your records. We provide a free assessment to determine if your records can be expunged.
Did you complete "deferred adjudication" probation for a misdemeanor or a felony criminal case? If so, you may be eligible to seal those records from the public. While sealing records does not destroy the records, it prevents employers and the general public from being able to discover your arrest or court records on a background check, and in most cases you can deny the occurrence of the arrest and court case on job applications.
We have expunged and sealed records for hundreds and hundreds of clients over the years, giving them a fresh start and a clean background. Call (214) 521-2200 today or use the contact form below to request a free consultation, and we can review whether your past arrest record and criminal case records can be expunged or sealed. Don't let your past be a burden to your future plans. Contact us today!
