Add Hope To Your Future – Seek Expunctions And Nondisclosures

You can't change the stress of a past arrest or criminal conviction, but as an experienced lawyer I know that there are legal actions you can take to help you put your best foot forward in the future.

At the McKinney, Texas, law office of Terri Daniel, Attorney at Law, PLLC, I help clients with matters related to their criminal records. As a McKinney, Texas, expunctions lawyer, I assist clients with legal procedures like expunction and petitions for nondisclosure, so that you can put your criminal record behind you and move forward with your life.

How Can Expunctions And Nondisclosures Help?

An expunction is a cost-effective legal tool that forces criminal justice agencies to destroy all records related to your arrest and prosecution. Often, this can include police reports, files related to your trial, or documentation of jail time. After your records have been expunged, in most circumstances, you do not have to disclose that the criminal event happened.

When Texas courts order nondisclosure of criminal records, criminal justice agencies are prohibited from disclosing information or giving records of an arrest, prosecution or deferred probation to the public at large. This means that, if your petition for nondisclosure is granted by the court, you can in most circumstances legally deny that the arrest, charge or deferred probation ever happened. It also means that the information should not appear in any public criminal history record or background search databases.

Serving You As You Pursue Relief From Your Record

As a lawyer with more than 18 years' experience in criminal law and post-conviction matters, I have seen the relief that an expunction and a nondisclosure provide. I know that good people make mistakes and get wrongly accused, so there is no reason that they should be penalized forever – in jobs, in apartment searches and in their lives – because of a past event. That's why I work hard to make sure that you can put the past behind you and move forward.
