Putting The Past Behind You: Expungement And Nondisclosure

A criminal record can make it difficult to secure employment or find housing. A record may even disqualify you from receiving certain loans. If it seems unfair that a past mistake should follow you for life, there may be options available.

An expungement effectively purges your record of a past conviction, making it as if the crime never happened. There are only a select set of criminal convictions that may be expunged. We can let you know whether this may be an option in your case.

An order of nondisclosure can also be a helpful tool for putting your past behind you. This order prohibits public entities such as courts and police departments from disclosing certain criminal histories. This type of order also frees you from having to mention the relevant conviction on job applications. Again, not every conviction is eligible for a nondisclosure order.
