Having an arrest on your permanent record can have more of an impact on your life than you may realize. Your criminal record is public and can technically be viewed by anyone.

Every time you apply for a job, a prospective employer can see into your past. This may limit your chances of being hired. Colleges or other educational institutions may conduct a background check and discover your record. As a result, you may not receive admission or scholarship opportunities. Certain housing facilities may not allow you as a resident due to your former mistake.

The United States is a land of second chances. For those with a criminal past, their second chance may come in the form of an expungement. An expungement is a process whereby an individual's criminal offense is legally eliminated or erased from their permanent record. Please note, expungement is only possible if you have not been convicted and if the charge is eligible under the limits of the law.


Many criminal offenses, such as DWI/DUI, can be expunged. However, there are others, including domestic violence, which cannot be taken off your record.Attorneys at our firm will help you determine if the crime you were arrested for is eligible for expungement.

Our firm realizes the difficulties and limitations you face because of your criminal history. We know how important it can be to have your record expunged.
