Under certain circumstances, police and court records of misdemeanor and felony offenses can be sealed or expunged from a person’s criminal history. Most crimes where an acquittal, dismissal, or withheld adjudication occurs can be sealed or expunged, so long as the person has never been adjudicated guilty (convicted) of any other crime. The effect of a records sealing or expungement is that the police and court records will cease to be available to the public, and only available to specific entities under specific circumstance. Once the sealing or expungement occurs, the records can not be found by a search of court records and the person may lawfully deny even being arrested for the crime. Our legal team advises and represents clients in sealing criminal records and obtaining expungements, working closely with them to prepare the necessary paperwork and information for the court.
