Thankfully, you may be able to expunge the record with the help of an experienced attorney.

Who Qualifies For Expungement?
Perhaps you were arrested for drunk driving when you were younger, but the case was dismissed. Perhaps you were accused of drug possession, but you were found not guilty. If you were arrested, but never convicted, you may qualify for expungement. However, if you were convicted of a crime, the conviction cannot be expunged.
An experienced lawyer at our criminal defense law firm will review your case to determine if you are eligible for expungement. If you are, we will move forward with the process to help you erase your arrest record.
Orders Of Nondisclosure
In addition to expungement, there is another option called an order of nondisclosure. This may be available in select circumstances. For example, if you were offered deferred adjudication for assault or a drug charge, and you completed all of the requirements successfully, you may be eligible for an order of nondisclosure. While this option does not completely eliminate the criminal record, it essentially seals the criminal record so that it cannot be seen by potential employers and other parties.
