Obtaining Expungement in Dallas
Retain the Help of a Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyer
When a person has a criminal record, he/she may find it most difficult to find job, housing and educational opportunities. In some cases, people with criminal records even have difficulty obtaining bank loans and professional licenses. Even in instances where the person committed his/her criminal offenses years ago, he/she will find that it is hard to rise above bias and stereotyping from employers, landlords, schools and banks.
Clearing a Criminal Record: Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney
If you have a criminal record that's weighing you down, an attorney can offer you a way out. Thankfully, there is a way in which those convicted can “erase” offenses from their criminal records and it is called expungement. Expungement is legally defined as the process in which a criminal conviction is sealed or removed. In Texas, peoples’ criminal records are accessible by the general public, which means that people have access to this information on a daily basis.
If a person has a criminal conviction or has been charged with a crime, someone can access this information. However, if the person successfully files for and obtains an expungement, then his/her conviction or criminal charges will no longer be publicly accessible. In some ways it can be as if the crime never occurred. A Dallas criminal defense lawyer is best qualified to help you carry out the expungement process in Texas, so call the D'Amore Law firm today.
