How You Can Close Your Criminal Record
If you are seeking to erase or seal your criminal record through expunction or non-disclosure, you need to consult an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who understands the differences as well as the impact each can have on your arrest record.

We will assist you in achieving the result you desire.
Expunction or Expungement
Expunction or expungement is the complete destruction of all paper and digital records from law enforcement and private background check systems and offices. If your case was dismissed or you completed a pre-trial intervention program, legally you are innocent and are eligible for expungement.
Unlike an expunction, an order of nondisclosure is not a complete obliteration of your arrest record, but rather a limitation of access to it. A nondisclosure is a judge’s order to seal your records prohibiting law enforcement, government officials, and private background check companies from divulging your criminal history to the general public. The information still exists, but most individuals will not be able to access it.
