Expungement of DUI Convictions
Work With Our Colorado Springs DUI Lawyer
If you were found guilty of a
DUI crime, you now have a criminal record that will be with you forever if
not expunged. Expungement is an action in which the finding of guilt will
be withdrawn, a judgment of not guilty is entered and your DUI is cleared.
There are additional circumstances that may necessitate expungement of
files as well. If your case was dismissed, The Samuelson Law Firm can
file for expungement of your case so that no record of the arrest or what
you were charged with remains. In some instances, I can file for expungement
of your records as part of the plea agreement in your case.
The process of legally destroying, striking or getting rid of your records
in computers and other files is done with the purpose of relieving you
of any penalties, stigma or disadvantages that can come with having a
record for DUI. As an experienced Colorado Springs DUI lawyer, I resolve
all DUI matters as if they were my own. Part of this is doing all possible
to clear the records once a case is dismissed or sentencing requirements
have been met.
How Arrests & Convictions Can Be Expunged
DUI arrests, trials and convictions can be extremely costly in terms of fines, your
freedoms and a record that follows you. Expungement can relieve you of
the burden of having to deal with DUI issues when you apply for a job,
obtain car insurance and other important matters in your life. It may
also start the process of receiving a certificate of rehabilitation or
pardon if you were found guilty of certain
felony DUI crimes. Your court, jail, police and criminal justice system records will
all be affected by expungement which includes those that concern your
arrest, detention, trial and sentencing.
If any of the following apply, you may be eligible for expungement:
- DUI charges were dismissed or you were acquitted
- No charges were filed in court and you only have an arrest record
- Your case was dismissed in a plea agreement, 10 years have passed, and
no other crimes have been committed.
Expunging your records is a specific process that must be correctly done
in order to be successful. I have helped good people with their DUI situations
for 15 years and know how having your records expunged can help bring
about peace of mind and the ability to get on with your life. It is a
worthwhile goal and one that I am pleased to achieve on behalf of my clients.
