Lynnwood Record Expungement Attorney
Have Your Record Expunged in Lynnwood, Washington
In Washington, you may have the right to request that a prior conviction
be expunged and vacated from your record. Expungement is the term that
is commonly used when a person wants to clear a prior criminal record.
In order to do this, you must file a Motion to Vacate the Conviction.
This clears your permanent record of the conviction by either withdrawing
your earlier guilty plea, the court setting aside the guilty verdict,
or the court dismissing it. However, you must be eligible to file for
this expungement. My firm, the
Law Office of Lance R. Fryrear, can help you determine if you qualify during a free initial consultation.
As an experienced Lynnwood criminal defense attorney, I can provide you
with the legal advice you need so you can make an informed decision.
Benefits of Expungement
There are a number of criteria you must meet in order to be able to file
for an expungement. Some of the criteria includes not having any new criminal
charges pending, at least three or five years having passed since the
sentence was completed and your case closed, not having been convicted
of a violent crime, and others. With my help we can determine whether
you qualify and discuss the benefits of expungement. An expungement can
help you tremendously as the conviction will no longer appear on your
record and you can legally omit the conviction from employment or housing
applications. This can open up new employment opportunities and allow
you to obtain adequate housing. It can also benefit you as far as insurance
rates, both for auto insurance, as well as health or life insurance. Ultimately,
it may even allow you to obtain your right to possess a firearm once again.
