Expunging A Criminal Charge From Your Record

In many cases, criminal charges can affect you long after you've served your time, impacting everything from your ability to secure and maintain employment to getting approved for a loan. If your only wish is to start over with a clean slate, then it's time to consider an expungement of your criminal record.

At Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, we believe in giving people a second chance, which is why we help our clients petition the court to have criminal charges expunged from their records. We will provide strong advocacy and trusted counsel every step of the way, helping you secure the clean slate you deserve.

Representation Committed To A Clean Slate

Under Virginia law, there are only two instances in which criminal charges can be expunged:

  1. If the accused is acquitted (not guilty)
  2. If the charge is dismissed or a nolle prosequi is taken

The defense lawyers at Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, will carefully review your record to determine if either of these applies to your situation. If you are eligible for expungement, we will help you draft and file a petition, advocate on your behalf and provide counsel from beginning to end.
