Wilmington Expungement Lawyer
Delaware Criminal Record Expungement Lawyer
One mistake should not affect the rest of your life. Many criminal charges are eligible for expungement. As a Wilmington expungement lawyer, I — Michael Modica — have helped many people throughout the state of Delaware expunge their criminal records and get a clean slate. Expungement is a legal procedure to obtain a court order directing the police to eliminate your arrest record and authorize you to deny that you ever where arrested for a criminal charge.
One important thing to remember is that the way your criminal charge is handled may adversely affect your ability to obtain a future expungement. That is why it is important to speak with an experienced attorney who can explain both the short- and long-term consequences of your criminal charge before making any deals with the prosecution.
If you were charged, but not convicted, of a crime you are entitled to an expungement. Also, if you successfully completed the Drug Diversion Program, or Probation Before Judgment, you may be eligible for expungement. Don’t let a charge interfere with your employment opportunities or prevent you from gaining admission into undergraduate and graduate programs. Come to me instead. I will evaluate your case to determine if you are eligible to obtain an expungement so you can live your life without ever having to disclose your prior arrest.
A Clean Record, Endless Opportunities
Juveniles are also entitled to expungement if criminal charges are dismissed. If a juvenile is convicted of a crime, called an adjudication of delinquency, the client is entitled to expunge his juvenile criminal history after three years from the date of the last conviction if there are no other convictions.
Even good, well-behaved young adults and college students make poor decisions that get them in trouble with the law. Unfortunately, a lapse in judgment that results in either a criminal charge or conviction may make it hard to obtain admission to graduate school, join the military or complete in today’s tough job market.
Don’t let your mistake taint your lifelong opportunities. Instead, seek a criminal record expungement.
