Clearing past convictions and arrests are important steps to putting your life back on track. Why have old convictions hanging over your head and potentially harming your ability to be employed, be licensed, vote, own and possess firearms, or otherwise enjoy all the rights of a whole citizen? Contact our office today to discuss how we can help you clear you record.
Sealing & Destroying Arrest Records
If you have been wrongfully arrested or if the district attorney declined to file an accusatory pleading, you may be eligible to have your arrest records sealed and, in time, destroyed. Our office has years of experience helping clients through the tedious procedure associated with sealing and destroying records.
Early Termination of Probation and Modifications
Probationary terms can become too restrictive or even counterproductive towards rehabilitation. This often occurs when probationary terms hamper an individual’s ability to seek employment. Or sometimes a modification is needed to transfer probation to another county. Whatever term may be affecting your life, remember probation can be modified and is not an absolute bar towards seeking additional relief.
An expungement is a method of dismissing a past conviction. As you may have already discovered, a prior conviction can be very detrimental to your success and future opportunities. Let the Law Office of Douglas A. Goss help you navigate this confusing area of law. We will be able to determine your eligibility, file all the paperwork, and make all the court appearances necessary to litigate your expungement.
Certificate of Rehabilitation and Pardon
The Certificate of Rehabilitation and Pardon process may have the affect of restoring all of your rights including the right to own and possess firearms if you have been convicted of a felony. This method of restoring your rights may be available when other remedies are not. Our office is dedicated to finding the best path for an individual based on their needs and desires.
Writs are commonly used to right a past wrong and correct an injustice. For example, if you were wrongfully convicted of an offense, a writ can be used to vacate the conviction; or if you know someone who is wrongfully incarcerated, a writ can be used to restore their freedom. Our office has a successful record of vacating prior convictions and granting other relief by means of extraordinary writs.
