What Can An Expungement Do For You?

At Lawrence, Smith and Gardner, we help people with a wide range of criminal defense issues, including expungements. Getting an expungement wipes a criminal arrest off your record for good, an action that carries a number of important benefits:

  • An expungement enables you to stop an employer or potential employer from finding out about your arrest
  • It mandates that law enforcement agencies who have your record erase the report of your arrest
  • Helps you in the process of erasing internet records of your arrest and keep them from being discovered in an internet search
  • Helps you avoid being turned down for housing and education opportunities because of your criminal record

Our attorneys have helped people throughout Virginia with the expungement of records involving arrests for traffic violations, shoplifting, DUI crimes and other misdemeanor offenses. We will do everything we can to help you clear your record. We make your goals our top priority.
