Houston Expungement Lawyer
Having a criminal arrest record in Houston or anywhere in Texas can cause long-lasting results for an individual in a wide variety of areas, ranging from causing difficulty in finding employment to placing restrictions on where it may be possible to live. For this reason, many people who have been arrested for a crime yet never convicted may seek the expungement of their records in order to ensure that past mistakes do not continue to affect their lives.
Expunction isn’t a simple process to successfully undertake. From understanding under what circumstances an expunction is possible to undergoing the process of suing each governmental agency that may have a record of the individual’s arrest, getting a criminal arrest record expunged can be frustrating and difficult for an individual person. As such, many people seek the assistance of a skilled and determined attorney like Kyle Sampson, Attorney at Law, to help them pursue an expunction of their arrest records.
Our Expungement Practice Areas
While expungement is only available in a limited number of circumstances, the most common situations where individuals are able to seek expunctions involve:
Successfully completed deferred adjudication for Class C misdemeanors
Additionally, in those situation where an expunction of records is not an option, it may be possible to seek non-disclosure of criminal records. An individual who has successfully completed a deferred adjudication community supervision may be eligible to have those records sealed from the public. This can be extremely important for those individuals having trouble finding employment or a place to live because of a prior case that resulted in a resolution of deferred adjudication.
