Sugar Land Texas Expunction Lawyer / Expunction Attorney
As a former Texas judge and experienced expunction attorney in Fort Bend County, I understand the inner workings of the criminal justice system and can help you file a petition for expunction. When clients retain our legal services, we immediately begin work on their case and offer a variety of options for obtaining an expunction order or a petition for non-disclosure seal.
What Is Expunction?
Criminal record expunction – also known as “expungement” – is the legal process of removing a criminal arrest record from public records. (Technically speaking, the record is “expunged.”)
Why Seek Expunction?
Having criminal charges on your record makes your life difficult in a number of ways:
- It can hinder you from attaining a lease on an apartment.
- It can make employers apprehensive about hiring you.
- It can cause you to be denied admission into the schools and colleges of your choice.
There’s no reason to be deprived of opportunities when you have the right to clean your criminal records through legal expunction.
The David Hunter Law Firm provides extensive criminal defense for clients charged and arrested for crimes in the Fort Bend County and Sugar Land, TX areas, and who are seeking expunction of their criminal records.
Do You Qualify for Expunction of Your Criminal Records?
Expunging your criminal records in Texas is a time-consuming process that should only be attempted with a knowledgeable expunction attorney by your side. Only certain criminal offenses can be expunged for defendants.
The State Bar Association of Texas states that you may be eligible for expunction if:
- “Not-Guilty” verdict after a trial hearing
- Acquitted by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals
- Conviction is pardoned by the Governor
- Completing a deferred adjudication for a Class C misdemeanor
Some criminal offenses require a 5-year waiting period before a petition for expunction can be filed. Other types of crimes may only be eligible for “sealing,” or non-disclosure to the public. Find out which one you are eligible for, so you can begin a new life without a criminal past.
