Find a Record Expungement Lawyer Anywhere
Why This Website Was Created
This site is designed and maintained by a criminal defense attorney. After many years in the courtroom it became obvious that too many people were being mis-labeled as criminals and were finding it hard to find even a simple job. It became clear that the public-at-large mischaractized people that had been accused of a crime. Fortunately, many states allow the accused to remove these labels from the public records. This is called an expungement. In order to qualify a person typically has to have had his or her case dropped by the authorities. Additionally, an extensive record usually will preclude that person from qualifying. An expungement is really for that one time mistake so that a person can have a second chance at chasing his or her dreams
Who Are The Attorneys On This Website
No attorney pays to be on SealAndExpunge.Com. Attorneys can be listed on this site in one of two ways. First, an attorney can ask to be listed. Second, and attorney can be listed after meeting specific qualifications. In either case, the attorney must have a place of business, have a website that details their skills in their state's laws and procedures concerning expungements, and provide up-to-date contact information. We list one attorney per county and try and list attorneys whose business location is also in that county. We prefer an attorney meeting the qualifications and located in the county listed.

Are You Eligible To Have Your Record Expunged
The ability to expunge or seal a criminal record depends upon state law. That is why it is important to talk directly to a local lawyer rather than a nationwide law office that claims it can expunge your record anywhere. It is important to talk to an attorney that is actually licensed in the state where your criminal record exists and can explain your options under that state's law. If you rely on a nationwide law office they will farm out your case to a local lawyer anyway - one that you may not want to have handle you case.
