Records Cleansing and Expungements
We are experienced in handling the record cleansing and expungements for past traffic and criminal pleas or convictions. Matters that have been concluded many years ago may resurface during a background check for employment or change of insurance. In many cases, individuals may have assumed that a conviction was expunged from your record because you entered a plea under Articles 893, 894, or 892.1, or because you participated in a diversionary program. Oftentimes the conviction is not actually cleared from your record and additional work is required to cleanse the record for those purposes specifically provided for by law.
Though record cleansing for those eligible is part of our routine legal services for our clients at no additional fee, we do provide the record clean up services for those who were not represented by the firm and come to us after a plea or conviction.
