Should I Have My Record Expunged?
Some people think that criminal charges will eventually come off their record after enough time has passed. Meanwhile, a criminal charge will actually stay on your record permanently until it is expunged — even if you were found not guilty. There are a lot of different benefits for having your record expunged. They include:
- Getting a Better Job
- Improving Your Housing
- Qualifying for Financial Loans or Student Loans

Easton Pardons and Expungement
First of all, we can determine if you’re eligible for a pardon, an expungement, or a limited access expungement. Plus, we will closely review your entire docket, determining the best possible approach for you. Eligibility is based on the disposition of the charge(s), Pennsylvania statutes, and your right to protect your own reputation. Second, we’ll fil the right petition with the court. Third, if you have a hearing, we’ll represent you. And finally, we’ll follow up to ensure that your record has been expunged.
In a lot of cases, we’re able to get summary offenses removed from the records of our clients. If you have a more serious charge, like a DUI, it may be expunged from your record. And there is a new Clean Slate Law that shields certain misdemeanors from public view. The types of crimes that are eligible include charges that didn’t turn into a conviction, summary convictions, and misdemeanors that include less than two years in prison. In certain kinds of instances, there are other crimes that can be expunged from your record. Even a felony may be expunged, depending on the final determination of the felony.
