Is My Record Eligible For Expungement Or Nondisclosure?

While most criminal charges and convictions come with some option for expunging or hiding records of the case, each case is handled on its own merits and circumstances. Not every case is eligible for expungement or nondisclosure. It is important that you have a knowledgeable attorney helping you understand your options.

At The Law Office of Leon Reed Jr., we are committed to helping individuals seek the legal solutions they need to escape the shadow of their criminal record.

Felonies are not eligible for expungement or nondisclosure for five years following the end of probation. Most misdemeanors are eligible for expungement or nondisclosure. This includes minor drug cases, theft and certain types of assault. Any assault against a family member is not eligible for expungement or nondisclosure.

Some misdemeanors require a waiting period of up to two years before an individual can file for expungement.

We also assist individuals throughout North Texas who are seeking expungement in the following types of situations:

  • Following an arrest where no crime was actually charged
  • If the case was dismissed, generally due to lack of evidence, probable cause or witnesses
  • If the individual pleaded guilty to a class C misdemeanor
  • Following a completed deferred adjudication
  • Following a not guilty acquittal by a judge or jury
