Virginia Beach Expungement Attorney

How to Seal Your Record in Virginia

The process and likelihood of having your record expunged will vary greatly depending upon the specific facts of your case. If you were convicted or entered a plea of guilty to a charge in Virginia, you are not eligible for expungement. Expunging records is actually a civil, not a criminal, proceeding. Someone who seeks to have an arrest expunged from their record must file an action in civil court against the Commonwealth of Virginia. A trusted criminal defense lawyer from the Law Office of Shawn M. Cline, PC can help determine if you are eligible for expungement.

Need Help Expunging Your Record?

The process of expunging a record can be quite complex. Courts are looking for certain factors when they determine whether an arrest ought to be expunged. We are all presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, but that doesn't mean that an arrest for which you were never convicted can't be a heavy burden. That may seem unfair, but it is the law. You need an aggressive attorney who understands how expungement works, and can tell you whether it is even a possibility in your particular case.
