Expunction

An expunction, commonly referred to as an “expungement”, is the process of erasing a criminal conviction. If your petition to the court is successful, the conviction will be erased from legal records so that no one can find it. That way, you won’t have to worry about it affecting your job or your personal life anymore.

Filing for an expunction can be difficult and you want to work with a skilled and experienced lawyer who can navigate this process. The law firm of Andrea M. Kolski specializes in expunction cases and can leverage years of experience to help you erase your conviction records.

Non-Disclosure

A non-disclosure hides the records of your conviction from public view. This includes companies and individuals. However, law enforcement will still be able to access these records if needed. A non-disclosure is not as permanent as an expunction since it won’t erase your records. However, it can provide privacy and peace of mind when interviewing for a job or other instances where a background check may be in order.

If you are convicted and cannot get an expunction, then a non-disclosure may be a better option. With almost 20 years of criminal law practice, The Law Firm of Andrea M. Kolski has been helping Texas citizens reclaim their reputation through non-disclosure and can help you do the same if you’ve got a prior conviction on your record.

Getting an Expunction or Non-Disclosure

You have to file a petition for expunction or non-disclosure with the court that convicted you. Not all crimes are eligible for expunctions and non-disclosures. It varies by state, but most states will not erase (or hide) violent crimes, sexual crimes, or crimes involving minors.

If you would like expert guidance or help with your petition, contact the Law Firm of Andrea M. Kolski. They can coach you through the process and file the paperwork for you. This process can make even the toughest person nervous, and you don’t want to go through it alone.
