Understand Expunction Laws In Texas
Texas law is full of unexpected twists and turns for clients who have at some point been arrested for a criminal charge. Even if you are released only hours later with all charges dismissed, the arrest alone can stay on your record for years to come, creating headaches and challenges for you to overcome. However, in some cases, there are options to clear your record.
Work With An Experienced Lawyer In Dallas, Texas, To Clear Your Name
At the law office of J. Michael Price II in Dallas, Texas, we can help you set the record straight. Through an expunction, also sometimes referred to as an expungement, we work to help you clear your record and your name. When your record is expunged, all records of an arrest are deleted and destroyed.
If you have a criminal record, call our office at 214-765-8000 to find out how our lawyer can help clean up your record.
Control What Appears On Your Criminal Background Check
Negative results of a criminal background check can create barriers for people looking for:
- Education opportunities
- Car loans
Many people are surprised to discover they have a criminal record at all. Even if you were arrested and the charges were dropped the same day, there is a public arrest record in your name. Surprisingly, some people are not even aware that they have been charged with a crime. The first step toward protecting your name is knowing what is on your record.
Are You Eligible For Criminal Record Sealing Or Expunction?
Whether your record involves time served following a conviction, an improperly sealed juvenile record or an arrest without conviction, Mike will work to get you the best possible outcome. We can help you seal your record, petition for an order of nondisclosure or ask a court to expunge your criminal record. You may even be able to obtain relief if you have a felony record.
