Clear Your Record Of A Criminal Conviction

We understand how devastating a criminal record can be and how negatively it affects your life. Through the expungement process, we can help return your record to the state it was prior to an arrest, investigation or detention. While additional convictions and sex offender registration may prohibit you from expungement, there are several reasons to pursue clearing your record. These include:

  • The charges were dropped or dismissed
  • You were acquitted of the charges
  • You have an otherwise clean record
  • You were a juvenile

A criminal record can create barriers to employment, housing, financial aid and even affect your ability to parent. It is in your best interest to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney about clearing your record. We will explain the expungement process thoroughly and advise you as to whether you would benefit from erasing a conviction. We also assist in sealing records. Schedule an initial consultation with our team. Call 352-592-0040.
