Expungements are the legal process by which certain criminal charges and / or convictions are removed from your public record. There are several factors such as the nature of the crime you were charged with and the outcome of the case. It can also depend on how long ago you were charged and/or convicted. Many charges cannot be expunged, however, it doesn’t hurt to look into the process.
An expungement may help you with employment and educational opportunities. An expungement can also give you the peace of mind of doing all you can do to put the past behind you. Understanding the unique reason you are seeking an expungement will help us to serve you better. The expungement process is designed to restore you, in the eyes of the law, to the position you occupied prior to the offense charged. Although law enforcement agencies may maintain a confidential record of the offense, the public record may be erased.
Please keep in mind that each case we work on is unique to itself. We will discuss fees after your initial consultation. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with the best possible service at a fair and reasonable rate. Always remember, your initial consultation is always free at the offices of R.L. “Ed” Edwards, Attorney & Counselor at Law, Inc.
