Record Clearing

While people who’ve been convicted of a crime aren’t eligible to have their records sealed or expunged, those who’ve received a dismissal, a deferred adjucation, or a deferred prosecution may qualify.


If you’ve had a criminal case against you dismissed, or if you’ve gone to trial and received a not guilty verdict, you might assume that your criminal record is clear. It’s a reasonable assumption, but in Texas, just because you’ve never been convicted of a crime doesn’t mean you haven’t got a criminal record.


There’s still a record of your arrest, and every time you’re the subject of a background check or someone pulls up your criminal history, that arrest will show up. You may already know this, if you’ve had trouble getting a job or securing housing. We’ve helped hundreds of clients get their cases expunged by the court or their juvenile records sealed, and we can do the same for you.
