Abilene Criminal Record Expungement

We offer Criminal Record Expungement services throughout Texas with offices in Abilene and San Angelo.

We offer two types of services for clearing criminal history in Texas:
  1. Expungment/Expunction (Record Erasing); and
  2. Nondisclosure (Record Sealing)

Expungment and Expunction:

Expunction means your criminal record for a certain offense is deleted altogether.  This means that if your Petition for Expunction is granted, the State of Texas must delete or destroy all records that are related to the offense.  This includes the following:

  • Jail records (including mugshots);
  • All online records of the offense;
  • Any paper files that may exist;
  • The prosecutor’s files;
  • All records that the clerk of the court may have; and
  • Much more.

Once your record is expunged, it is completely erased.  It is as if you were never charged with the offense.  No one will have any record of the offense and you are legally entitled to say you have never even been arrested.

You may be eligible to have your case expunged if the following occurred:

  • You completed Pretrial Diversion;
  • You were arrested but your case was not prosecuted (i.e. it was rejected or never filed);
  • Your case was dismissed; or
  • You were granted deferred adjudication for certain Class C misdemeanors.

Determining whether you are eligible for expunction is an involved process.  Our attorney will determine whether you qualify for expunction prior to accepting your case.  This evaluation is done free of charge with no upfront cost to you.  In addition, if we determine you are eligible, we offer a money back guarantee on our services.

Our fees for expunction vary but are typically $950 to $1,500.  Call today our criminal defense attorney in Abilene Texas for an exact quote.  Payment plans are available.

Nondisclosure:

Nondisclosure means your criminal record is sealed from public view.  Governmental entities can still see your record but the public cannot.  This includes private employers.  If your Petition for Nondisclosure is granted, the following records will be sealed:

  • Jail records (including mugshots);
  • All online records of the offense; and
  • All other records the public may have access to.

Once your Petition for Nondisclosure is granted, it is completely sealed and you are legally entitled to say that you have never been charged with the offense. You may be eligible for nondisclosure if you completed deferred adjudication probation.

  • Deferred Adjudication Probation means that you entered a plea but the judge deferred a finding (adjudication) of guilt for the period of probation then dismissed the charge once probation was completed.

Nondisclosure is available for the most common misdemeanor offenses but there are exceptions and certain waiting periods may be required.   We will determine whether you qualify for free.  We also offer a money-back guarantee for our nondisclosure services.

Our fees for nondisclosure vary but are typically $750 to $1,250.  Call our criminal defense attorney in Abilene Texas for an exact quote.  Payment plans are available.
