  • Record Sealing Lawyer

    In our line of work there is no greater satisfaction than hearing a prosecutor say a criminal case has been “dismissed” or a jury saying “not guilty”. The battle however does not end in the courtroom. A dismissal or not guilty is only the first part of clearing your name. In this “age of information” a non-expunged dismissal or not guilty is no better than a conviction for purposes of a person’s record. Failing to take advantage of erasing your record will result in unwanted explanations with employers, landlords, cops, and anyone with access to a computer about previous accusations. If you received deferred adjudication, you may be eligible for a non-disclosure. a non-disclosure blocks your record from the public, but it not entirely erased like an expunction. Contact our Houston criminal defense attorneys now to learn more.
