Expungement/Expunction

You want to move forward in life, to obtain an education, to achieve your goals. Yet your future is marred by your past. You have put the past behind you, but other people may not believe you have changed.

Expungement Of Criminal Record

A criminal record can cast a shadow over your future prospects, making it difficult to succeed in your professional and even personal life. You may be eligible for some relief from past criminal conduct or charges. In some cases, it may be possible to have a judgment vacated or set aside in order to give you the second chance in life that you desire. In other cases, it may be possible to have arrest records expunged and purged from the public docket.

Limitations On Expunction

Expunction is not available in every case. Further, expunction (also known as expungement) is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In the typical case, you can only petition a court to consider expunction once per lifetime so it is important to know the deadlines and scope of eligibility.
