Expungements vs. Sealing Criminal Records

If you were recently charged with a crime, but were acquitted, you may be eligible to expunge your criminal record. Although certain agencies will be able to see the charge, such as the police and federal government, the charge is blocked from the general public. For all intents and purposes, you can live life as if the charge never existed.

If your case was dropped or you have a sealed record from 10 years prior, you are eligible for expungement. An expungement completely wipes clean any record of a criminal charge.

You should not be punished for a lifetime because of a police mistake. Our goal is to get your record clean so you are not haunted by a past criminal charge with no merit. We are experienced in handling these matters and are committed to helping you move forward from the past.

Note: Only one case in a lifetime can be expunged or sealed, and a conviction voids all eligibility for expungement and sealing.
