Expungement and sealing record – There are many ways to expunge a criminal arrest and/or criminal conviction for misdemeanor offenses. Felony convictions are not expungable in the District of Columbia with the exception of bail reform act violation.
Have you ever been arrested and never charged with a crime? Were you charged but the case against you was dismissed? Were you found not guilty at trial or placed on deferred prosecution or deferred sentencing for a misdemeanor? If the answer to any of these questions is, “Yes,” then you currently have a criminal record. But you might not have to.
In Washington, D.C., it’s possible to expunge or seal your criminal record if you are eligible. Expungement legally erases your criminal history from your record. Having your record sealed, or obtaining an Order of Non-Disclosure, effectively hides your record from the public. The experienced attorneys at Rollins & Chan are skilled in helping clients both expunge and seal their criminal records.
A criminal record follows you throughout your life and can negatively affect your ability to get a job, a promotion, housing, college acceptances, scholarships, loans, professional licenses, security clearances and more. By having your record expunged or sealed, you can start anew and move on from past mistakes. Clearing your record is an investment in the rest of your life that pays for itself many times over.
