Vacating Felony and Misdemeanor Convictions

If you have an old misdemeanor or felony conviction and have completed all of the terms and conditions of your sentence, you may qualify to have your conviction vacated. Vacating a criminal conviction means you will be released from all penalties resulting from the conviction, and can report on any employment application and for all other purposes that you have never been convicted of that crime. If you need help cleaning up an old conviction call us today to determine if you qualify.

Restoration of Firearm Rights

Some criminal convictions will result in the loss of your right to own or possess firearms. However, your right to be bear arms may be restored by a court of record, but that process is not automatic. If you qualify, you must file a petition in the Superior Court to restore your firearm rights. This is not something you want to guess at. We handle all of our firearm rights restoration cases on a flat fee basis. Call us today to determine if you qualify.

Sealing Juvenile Court Records

If you were convicted as a juvenile, you may be eligible to seal your court records. Sealing your records means that potential employers or anyone else who conducts a Washington State Patrol background check will be unable to see any information regarding prior juvenile convictions. This law gives juveniles an opportunity to get a fresh start. Call us to determine if you qualify.

Expunging Criminal History Records

For certain criminal history records, such as a dismissal following an arrest, you may be able to expunge or delete non-conviction data. Expungement refers only to the criminal history records, and not to the court records. However, for many people, when you are applying for a job or an apartment it is the background check that matters most.
