Fort Worth Expunction Attorney
Tarrant County Defense Lawyer Helping Clients Clear Their Record
Simply being charged with a crime can do serious damage to your criminal record and be visible by employers, lenders and other institutions who engage in criminal background checks. Expunctions are among the ways that you can work at getting criminal records sealed in Texas.
As your attorney, if your case was dismissed or your were found not guilty, we can work to help you get an expungement to clear your name. At the law office of David E. Cook, our founding lawyer has been helping clients get results and justice in the Fort Worth area for over 15 years. Let us put our experience behind you.
What Does Your Record Say About You
People who have been found not guilty suffer the consequences of simply being arrested and charged. Expunctions (sometimes called expungements) are legal tools that allow those who were found to have done nothing wrong or whose case was dismissed to clear their name.
Getting your criminal record sealed or cleared in the State of Texas often is best accomplished by working with an experienced lawyer. Our office can help you understand whether you are eligible for an expunction which can help you:
- Clear your name
- State legally in most cases that you have never been convicted
- Get a job or other employment opportunity
- Buy a home
- Apply for and receive a loan
Even if you have been charged with and plead guilty to a crime and received deferred adjudication probation, you may be eligible to seal your record under certain conditions by petitioning for nondisclosure. Since not every criminal offense is eligible for record clearing options, it is important to consult with a lawyer to discuss your case.
