Washington DC Expungement Lawyer
For many criminal charges, having your case expunged and your arrest record sealed is an option that essentially erases your criminal record. Our attorneys can assist you in understanding the process of expungements as well as your eligibility for your record to be sealed. If you have committed a felony or first degree misdemeanor in which the victim was under the age of 18, expunging your arrest is probably not feasible. If your charge was dismissed, “No Papered” by the government, or you received a “Noelle Prosequi” disposition, felony charges might be eligible for expungement based on actual innocence. If you have committed a misdemeanor and completed your probation without any incidents, you can usually successfully expunge your arrest after a waiting period that varies depending on your exact charge. It is important to note that there are also select misdemeanors that are ineligible to expunge, including a DUI/DWI or sex offense.
Having an arrest sealed will prevent you from suffering from the many disadvantages of having a criminal record. We can provide you with a strong expungement attorney to ensure you receive fair treatment by the judicial system in expunging your arrest.
