Your Past Should Not Define Your Future
Anyone is capable of making a mistake. However, no one should have to suffer for the rest of their life due to a poor choice in the past. When it comes to past criminal offenses, you may have the chance to clear or seal your record so that you can have a fresh start.
I can help you with this. At Law Offices of Charles T. Ganz, I work with clients throughout Houston and Coldspring to expunge or seal their criminal records. In my career, I have earned a reputation for success by helping numerous clients move forward from their pasts and on toward brighter futures.
Expunction Vs. Nondisclosure: What Do They Mean?
You have two options for cleaning up your criminal record: expunction and nondisclosure. The methods are slightly different:
- Expunction: Expunction permanently clears an arrest or charge from your record. However, it cannot clear convictions.
- Nondisclosure: A nondisclosure seals certain offenses in your criminal record from public view. Law enforcement and the court can still view your record.
The law is very strict and very complex when it comes to clearing or sealing an offense. There are numerous conditions that you must meet before qualifying for either procedure. I can sit down with you and determine which option you qualify for if any.
Why Hire An Attorney?
Although you have the option of filing the petition for expunction or nondisclosure yourself, this is not necessarily wise. The procedure is incredibly technical; if you make a minor error, it can permanently jeopardize your eligibility. Having petitioned for numerous expunctions and nondisclosures successfully, I will help you with every step, answer your questions and address any roadblocks if they arise.
