Expungement Lawyer and Sealing Criminal Records Lawyer
What is a Criminal Record
A criminal record is created any time you are arrested or charged with an offense, even if you are not charged or found guilty.
Why should I consider expunging or sealing my criminal records?
A criminal record is often the most damaging consequence of a criminal proceeding because it is negative publicly available information. A criminal record will have a negative effect on your ability to get into a good college, gain employment, secure credit, or obtain housing even if you were not convicted of any wrongdoing.
How is a record expunged?
A record is expunged when it is either destroyed or returned to you. Additionally, your name and criminal history will be removed from all public records. When a record is expunged it is essentially erased from the system.
How is a record sealed?
A record is sealed when it is removed from public view and all references to the record are destroyed. Sealed records will be maintained but they are available only to law enforcement agencies, courts or by court order.
