Concerning DWI Expungement
Why You Need a Houston DWI Attorney
Many people want a clean slate after being charged with a DWI offense. A
Houston DWI lawyer should be retained once you decide to pursue a DWI expungement (also called an expunction) in order to maximize the possibility of a successful outcome. There are numerous laws surrounding who is eligible to have their criminal record expunged, and there is a specific process to go through to complete the act.
I, Attorney Ned Barnett, will be able to review the specific circumstances of your case and can determine if you qualify to apply for an expungement of your DWI charge. As a lawyer that has practiced for 24 years, I am aware of the eligibility requirements, exceptions and limitations to having your criminal DWI record expunged. If you have any questions concerning the procedure, whether you qualify and what the benefits can be, I can answer them for you so that you can make an informed decision.
The Benefit of Expungement
If your record is expunged, then every agency that has any record of your arrest is ordered to destroy the record. If they do not destroy these records, they are commiting a criminal offense. Once expunged, you can legally state that you have never even been arrested. This may provide the freedom that you need to increase your chances of a better job opportunity and allow you to look favorably toward the future. I have assisted many clients overcome legal obstacles and may be able to do the same for you. Your future is important, and having your DWI expunged could be a vital step in the process.
