Are You Eligible For Expungement/Sealing And Destroying?

Whether you can ultimately remove your conviction, seal and destroy your arrest record or, obtain a Certificate of Rehabilitation and Request a Pardon from the Governor will depend on your particular set of circumstances. It’s critical to have a lawyer that can effectively navigate the system to get you the best result possible.

Expungement as well as sealing and destroying records are court processes.

This means you must file certain documentation and, in many cases, negotiate with the prosecution and appear in court. In more complex cases, the court hearings may be intensive.

Hiring a lawyer to represent you can help the process go much more smoothly. As an experienced trial attorney, I know what judges and prosecutors will look for in these types of cases. I will present favorable legal arguments to maximize your chances of obtaining a successful outcome.
