Expunging or Sealing Criminal Records

Having a criminal arrest on your record can significantly affect your future. It might prevent you from getting a job, getting into graduate school or living where you want to live. Under certain circumstances, however, a Petition to Expunge record can clear your criminal record.

The Marco Island and Naples expunge and seal attorneys at The Law Offices of Hodge and Snyder have experience helping clients through this process. Job, loan and housing applications often ask if you have been convicted of a crime. Failure to disclose your criminal past could result in job loss or you could be forced to move out of your home or apartment. Our experienced lawyers have helped many clients expunge their past criminal record so they can legally answer "No" on these forms.

Hiring an attorney is extremely important if you are seeking to have your record expunged or sealed. There are several complex rules and statutes involved, so it is wise to schedule a consultation with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney to learn about your options.

Expunge Versus Sealing a Record

Many clients question the difference between a sealed record and an expunged record. When you seal your criminal record, your past convictions, while less visible, remain. If you get your record expunged, however, particular items on your criminal record will be completely erased.
