Record Expungement Attorney in Fort Wayne, Indiana
Can You Restore Your Clean Record After a Conviction?
One of the most unfortunate consequences of a criminal conviction is the way it stains your criminal record. Having arrests and convictions on your record can make it next to impossible to get a good job, having a lasting effect on your quality of life. There are legal tools available, however, to help you clear your criminal record, and hiring a good attorney is the first step in the process.
At the Fort Wayne, Indiana, law firm of Arnold Terrill Anzini P.C., we help people attempt to clear their criminal records by attacking the problem with a variety of legal tools such as expungements, post-conviction relief, pardons and the sealing of records. These are complicated processes, making an experienced attorney your most important asset.
Expungement, PCR, & Restricted Records
There is a lot of misinformation regarding cleaning up a messy criminal record. In Indiana, different procedures are used to vacate a conviction, get a conviction taken off your public criminal record, get a conviction reduced to a lesser charge or get an arrest and subsequent conviction taken off your public criminal record.
Successful application of these procedures could very well result in a clean criminal record which brightens your employment prospects and could also result in getting your driver’s license reinstated.
Effective July 1, 2011, it became easier to clean up the criminal records of good people who have a stain on their criminal record. A person convicted of a non-violent, Class D felony or below crime can potentially get their criminal history sealed to the public if eight years have elapsed since completion of their criminal case.
