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 Expungement is an action in which the finding of guilt will be withdrawn, a judgment of not guilty is entered and your DUI is cleared.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.
