Expungement

For most misdemeanor offenses, once the terms of a persons sentence is complete, they may petition the court to expunge their record: meaning that the records of the offense are sealed or destroyed and the person can legally state that they have never been convicted of that misdemeanor. Under certain circumstances, some felonies may be reduced to a misdemeanor and then expunged, depending on the facts and charges of each case.

Often times a criminal record can be a stumbling block in the lives of those who are just trying to move on. A criminal record can impact job eligibility, insurance rates, citizenship, and the general quality of life. An Expungement can literally create a clean slate.
