Expungement

A Skilled Attorney Who Works To Clear Criminal Records

Having a criminal record can close many opportunities, including those related to employment. You may have trouble moving on from a conviction if your criminal record keeps affecting everything you do. The good news is that some offenses can be expunged. A skilled criminal defense attorney can work on getting a criminal charge expunged.

Over Three Decades Of Experience

With more than 30 years in practice, Carrillo Law Office in Kingsville, Texas, has the knowledge and experience to help. I am founding attorney Ricardo Carrillo, a former prosecutor and lifelong resident of Duval County. My job is to clear criminal charges off your record whenever possible so you can move on with your life.

Understanding Expungements

Expungement is a legal process that erases your record of arrest or criminal conviction, keeping it clean in the eyes of the general public, employers and landlords. However, this record can still be accessed by government agencies. Once you have your criminal record expunged, you are not entitled to disclose it even if you are questioned on such lines. For example, when applying for a job, it is legal to answer “no” when asked if you have previously been convicted of a crime.

Expungement is not always a straightforward process. Texas can be strict about which offenses can and cannot be expunged. Even if your paperwork is approved, you will need to attend a court hearing. It is always wise to have an attorney at your side during court proceedings. As a former criminal prosecutor, I understand the criminal law process and will advocate for your best interests. I can review your case first and determine whether you are eligible for expungement.
