Is your criminal record holding you back? If so, you may want to ask the court to expunge your record. Expunging your record means that your prior conviction is set aside. If you successfully expunge your record, you are considered to not have been convicted for most purposes. As a result it may be easier for you to get a job, housing or an approved line of credit.
To be eligible for record expunged you must meet very specific criteria. Most importantly, you are only eligible for an expungement if you have only ONE prior conviction. This rule applies to both felonies and misdemeanors. You may only have one total prior conviction in order to be eligible for expungement. Furthermore, you must wait at least five years from the date you were convicted. If your sentence involved any term of imprisonment then you must wait five years from the date you were released from prison / jail. There are numerous other criteria that applies when requesting an expungement, an experienced attorney such as Clint W. Perryman will be able to efficiently process your application and represent you at the hearing. The process can be complicated and just because you are eligible does not automatically mean a judge will grant your request. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will work hard to convince the deciding judge that you deserve to have your record expunged.
“Hiring Clint was the best decision I could have ever made. I was facing a very serious charge with very serious consequences and Clint was nothing but the best. When I first got in touch with Clint, he was honest. He informed me of what I was facing (based upon the information I gave him) and what my possible outcomes could be, then he reassured me. He said, ‘What’s done is done and now we have to focus on making it right and we’ll do it together.’ Throughout my ordeal, Clint was accessible, kept me informed, and worked diligently to provide me with the best possible outcome. I couldn’t have dreamed for a better result. Had I not contacted him, I don’t know where I’d be, but I know that because I did I am in a much greater frame of mind and I have a sense of peace that is indescribable. If you’re in a situation that feels hopeless, please contact Clint. He will work as hard as it takes to help you and make your situation better.” – Jason
