It’s never too late to make a fresh start.
Having an arrest or criminal conviction on your record can damage your social and professional reputation as well as sabotage your education, housing, and employment prospects. Under many circumstances it is possible to have the records of an arrest or of a criminal conviction sealed, and the incident is deemed to never have occurred.
The laws on “expungement,” (the correct legal term is “setting aside the record”) have changed over the years, and substantial changes came into effect in January 2016. What may not have been “expungible” a year ago or a decade ago may be now. However, the statute is still one of the most convoluted and commonly misunderstood, even by experienced criminal attorneys.
Joan contributed to the legislation behind the 2016 changes, so understands the law well. She offers a $25 expungement consultation. To make the best use of your time and money she strongly recommends that you bring a copy of your official criminal history record available via this link.
