Sealing and/or Expungement of Criminal Records

Once you have been charged with a crime and a criminal complaint issues, a permanent record is established (CORI) that will in all likelihood stay with you for the rest of your life. However, there are avenues to take so that you can have your criminal record sealed depending upon the charges, when they occurred, and the final outcome of the criminal case.

In almost all situations, your only avenue for dealing with a criminal record is to have the record sealed. Expungement is almost never an option unless you can prove that the criminal complaint filed against you is the result of fraud and, even when you can prove fraud, expungement is incredibly difficult to obtain. However, sealing your record can satisfy many of your needs when it comes to employment situations. Contact our offices to consult on any of your criminal record sealing needs.
