Criminal Records Expungement
A criminal conviction can interfere with employment, leasing a home or apartment, admission and financial aid for colleges and trade schools, firearms purchases, and many other matters in life. At The Rainier Law Group, PLLC, we have many years of experience vacating criminal convictions and sealing court records.
The law firm is experienced with a range of issues related to criminal history records, including:
- Vacating felony and misdemeanor criminal convictions
- Correcting errors in criminal-history records
- Sealing and vacating juvenile convictions and court records
- Deletion of arrest records
Vacating a conviction record removes the conviction from the individual's record, and permits the person to state that he or she was not convicted. Vacating a conviction or expunging an arrest record removes a significant barrier to success in life. When records are vacated, expunged, or sealed an individual can move past the record and enjoy a normal life.
Over the years we have found many errors in federal, state, and local criminal-history records. Such errors can be extremely damaging to a person's reputation and life. The Rainier Law Group, PLLC, has been successful at correcting such errors promptly at reasonable expense.
Restoration of Firearm Rights
If you have a conviction for a felony or certain misdemeanors you will lose your right to possess firearms. Errors in criminal history records may result in a denial of firearm possession rights. Federal law and Washington state law require a background check for every firearm purchaser. In order to pass the check it is essential to restore firearm rights and correct mistakes in criminal-history records. We work effectively and aggressively to vacate felony and misdemeanor records, correct errors in records, and restore firearms rights for individuals.
