We Can Seal the Deal
Everybody makes mistakes, some more than others, with each carrying a varied degree of severity. In terms of a permanent record, the justice system treats people who were evicted for not paying rent the same as those who committed serious felony crimes. Whether you’re a first-time or repeat offender, your criminal conviction and eviction record could permanently impact your future without experienced legal counsel and reliable resources on your side.
Our award-winning team has seen thousands of cases and understands that any altercation with the justice system may leave you with nothing: no job, no education and no security. There are far too many cases where people with a rough past are robbed of a second chance simply because of their tainted record, and our dedicated record sealing and expungement attorney is equipped with over 15 years of experience and legal knowledge needed to fight for a fresh start.
You are eligible for record sealing if your entire record fits into any of the below tracks:
Track 1: Five or fewer felony convictions in which none exceed the 4th degree, and any number of misdemeanors. However, you cannot have a conviction for a felony violence or sex offense:
- Any “violent” offense such as aggravated assault, sexual battery, rape and domestic violence
- Any sexual offenses involving minors, among others
Track 2: One felony, one felony and one misdemeanor, or two misdemeanors. Felonies must not exceed the 4th degree. There are three exceptions to this track, including:
- Minor misdemeanors do not count toward your number of convictions
- Multiple convictions from the same incident may be counted as one conviction
- Convictions for related criminal acts committed within three months of each other that were handled by the same court at the same time may count as one conviction
You are exempt from getting your record sealed or expunged if:
- You are on probation
- You are on community control
- You owe any fines or costs
- You’ve committed an offense which involves a mandatory prison term
- You’ve been convicted for operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI)
Once your record is sealed, you can lawfully and ethically say that you don’t have a criminal record and act like it never happened. But, these agencies still have access to your record:
- Law enforcement agencies
- Judges evaluating previous convictions when sentencing future crimes
- Jobs involving working with children or the elderly
- The majority of professional licensing boards
- The police
- Some real estate and financial institutions
