Criminal Expungement

Expungement is the process of removing or erasing a criminal charge from your record. A certain amount of time is required before a charge can be expunged, depending on the level and type of conviction. A 402 Reduction is the process of reducing a criminal conviction to a lesser degree if you can meet certain qualifications.

Both processes can be frustrating and confusing due to strict Court procedural rules. Elmore Law can handle your expungement or 402 reduction and help to ease the stress of the process. If you do not qualify for expungement, you may be able to pursue a Pardon.

If you are interested in an expungement or pardon, we do offer free 30 minute consultations to deterine if either of these options are available to you. If you know you are eligible and would like to start the process of having our office represent you, please fill out the following forms and submit them to BCI:

If you are not eligible for an Expungement or 402 Reduction, a pardon may be the right path for you. It is also possible to look at obtaining a pardon after some charges have been reduced or expunged. A pardon, much like an expungement, can erase charges from your criminal record.

The Board of Pardons requires those who want to pursue a pardon to fill out an application and acquire paperwork and records pertaining to the case being pardoned. This application and record request process can be very overwhelming and confusing. Elmore Law can help you navigate this process to pursue your pardon today.
