What is Expungement?
Richmond Criminal Defense Attorney
We live in an information age and it has never been easier to access public records. Prospective employers, banks, educational institutions among others may all be accessing your records when you fill out a job application, credit application, volunteer application or some similar process. If you have ever been arrested for a crime and were found not-guilty or the case was dismissed, the record of your arrest will still be on file. That record of arrest may be preventing you from achieving your goals. Expunging, or clearing, your record might be an option for you. If you want to have your arrest record cleared, you need to contact us today. Our firm may be able to help clear your record and ensure that your future is wide-open.
In general, the State of Virginia can be unforgiving toward those who have been convicted of a crime. In order to have a conviction expunged from your record you may need a Governor's pardon. If you were arrested but then found not-guilty or the case against you was either dropped or dismissed, you may have a strong case for expungement. Wrongful arrests, arresting an innocent person or false accusations occur far more frequently than many people would like to believe. If you have been arrested but not convicted, James A. Bullard Jr. P.C. passionately believes that you deserve to move forward with your life without the blemish of a past arrest preventing you from fully achieving your goals and dreams. Our firm will aggressively pursue the expungement of your arrest record.
