Cape Cod Expungement Attorney

People who have been convicted of crimes in the past often find that those offenses continue to affect their lives far into the future. People who have past criminal offenses on their records may have difficultly gaining employment, securing housing, and may feel other infringements on their civil rights. Fortunately, many individuals find relief through expungement. Expungement is the process of sealing former criminal records so that they are not accessible in state and federal files.

If you have been convicted of a crime in the past and want to seal your criminal record, Cape Cod expungement lawyer James Powderly can help. He has dedicated his practice to defending those charged with crimes and has successfully represented thousands of clients. To discuss your situation, contact our offices at 508-343-0676 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Getting a Record Expunged

Expungement may help you get a fresh start – making it as if an incident never occurred – as your criminal record should no longer be accessible during background checks. People who go through the expungement process are usually required to meet a series of requirements, including:

  • A designated period of time since the conviction
  • No other incidents since the conviction
  • Less than a designated number of incidents
  • Completion of all sentencing terms

Convictions for certain serious crimes are often not eligible for expungement, but a qualified Cape Cod expungement attorney can help you explore all of your options and determine if expungement is possible in your situation.
