Expungement & Record Sealing

Put the past behind you! Find out how to clear your criminal record.

Vacating a conviction is basically overruling or voiding a previous conviction. After a conviction is vacated, it should no longer appear as a conviction on background checks. Another available option may be to seal your record. Sealing your record is a way of concealing your records from being publicly accessible as a public record. The criteria for vacating a misdemeanor or felony offense are listed below.

The Most Important Part Of The Post Criminal Conviction Process


When you’re convicted of a crime, you’ll very likely feel like your life is basically over. Having a criminal record makes it more difficult for you to get a job, to find good housing, to get credit -- it complicates your life in ways you might not have even thought of.


The truth is that there is a light at the end of the tunnel: It is possible to have a criminal record expunged after the fact. This means that the record that a person was ever convicted is going to be wiped away from the record. Even more importantly, that means that it will not be possible for anyone to pull up those records when they are doing a background check of some kind on you.

Pre-Employment Background Check


One of the moments when you are very likely to end up having to go through a background check is when you are applying for a new job. Your potential employer is very likely to have you go through this process as a simple way of checking to see what kind of job candidate you are. Ideally, they want someone who has proven that they are responsible and does not have a criminal record of any kind. Thus, you need your slate to be clean if you want to get the best job possible.


Finding a job after you have been convicted is incredibly difficult for a lot of reasons. At the same time, it is completely necessary if you want to get back up on your feet and help establish your life as it was before. That creates a difficult catch-22 that many people find it difficult to get out of.


Having an expungement lawyer like Michael Harbeson get your record set completely straight helps you be able to get the job that you want to have so you can live your best life.

Seal The Records For Good


In most states, there are ways to have your convictions expunged from the record -- at least on the first offense. You can have those records wiped clean as a result of the fact that the state wants to show some mercy to people who have just made one legal mistake in their past.


But since it is still possible for things to go wrong with this process, it’s a smart idea to have a lawyer by your side to make sure that your criminal record is expunged properly the first time around. You do not want to have any lingering doubts that you might still have a record floating out there somewhere -- be sure that you have a clean slate.


Ultimately, you have the option to allow your record to stand for what it is and to try to move forward. But without expungement, it’s that much harder to do so. To really expunge your record, choose us as your lawyer. Together, we’ll make sure that you are in the best position to get a job and start to put your life back on track.
