Vacating Felony & Misdemeanor Convictions / Deleting Non-Conviction Data / Sealing Juvenile Records

Vacation of Felony & Misdemeanor Convictions (“Expungement”):

Each year it seems more and more employers, rental agencies and creditors are running background checks on applicants to determine their eligibility for employment, housing and credit. Sadly, criminal history can red-flag an applicants hopes of obtaining any of the above.

  • Have you been effected by a background check?
  • Do you have a felony and / or misdemeanor conviction on your record?
  • Does non-conviction data appear on your record such as a case that was dismissed pursuant to a diversion agreement or stipulated order of continuance?
  • Is non-conviction data still appearing on your record even though you took your case to trial and won or the case was dismissed because the government lacked sufficient evidence?
  • Were you convicted as a juvenile? Has the record been sealed?
