Expunging your record
If you have been convicted of a crime and are suffering from the results of having a criminal record, there are legal remedies that may permit your conviction to be expunged. Carrying a criminal record can have haunting effects for people convicted of criminal acts, from lack of employability, to lower wages, and ineligibility to seek degrees of higher education in our state. The impact of a criminal record can short-change your entire life.
Expungement of a criminal record is not available for every crime or even in all circumstances for certain types of crimes you might expect could be expunged. We are experienced and qualified North Carolina criminal expungement attorneys. We welcome you to call our office in order to set up an appointment to discuss your eligibility to have your record expunged. We offer free, confidential consultations.
If you are unable to obtain an expungement, then you may be eligible for a certificate for relief. Although a certificate of relief does not clear your record, it may assist in obtaining certain types of employment or licenses that your record has prevented in the past.
