Expunction is a legal process where a person is given an opportunity to permanently erase a criminal record. When a crime is expunged you are legally allowed to deny having ever been convicted of this charge. If you are seeking an expunction you should contact a criminal defense attorney at the Robinson Law Firm, P.A. for assistance with your petition.
Typically, a criminal record cannot be expunged if:
You have expunged a crime record previously
You were convicted previously of a felony
Your offense was a minor motor vehicle violation
Because you are only allowed to have your record expunged once in your life, subject to specific exceptions, you should discuss this option extensively with a criminal defense lawyer before making a final decision. The Robinson Law Firm and our staff have assisted hundreds of clients with expunctions of prior criminal records. We can provide you with the necessary information and guidance to get you through the petition process.
HOW AN EXPUNGEMENT CAN SAVE YOUR FUTURE
Criminal convictions or arrests have the potential to wreak havoc in a person’s life long after the punishment for the crime has been served or the case has been dismissed. A large number of employers will not hire a person if they possess a criminal record. Similarly, many banks and lending institutions are extremely reluctant to grant home or vehicle loans to those who have been convicted of a crime. An expunction can serve to circumvent these hardships, by essentially giving the person a fresh start free of any record of wrongdoing or accusation of wrongdoing.
For over 30 years, The Robinson Law firm, P.A. has been fighting on behalf of clients charged with all types of criminal offenses. The process of petitioning for an expunction is a tedious and complex task. Even a small mistake can ruin your chances for a successful petition! When you hire an expungement attorney to help you in your expunction case, you benefit from their knowledge and maximize your chances of a successful outcome.
