Is It Possible To Clear Your Record?

A conviction on your criminal record is a permanent mark that can affect your life in multiple ways. From housing applications to employment opportunities, a blemish on your record can hold you back and keep you from your goals. At the Spradlin Kennedy Law Firm, we want to help you move on with your life, which is why we can help you explore the option of expungement.

Expungement is the process of sealing your criminal record of convictions for specific types of crimes. The purpose of an expungement is to place you back in the position you were in prior to your conviction. We can help you pursue this option and determine if this is the appropriate course of action for your individual situation. Our experienced lawyers can help you petition the courts in Missouri and Kansas to seal your convictions so that you can put the past behind you.

Are You Eligible?

Not everyone can get an expungement, and not every type of crime is eligible for this option. Our lawyers can carefully evaluate your situation and determine how to best approach securing an expungement for you. There are two types of expungements available, and they include:

  • DWI expungements – This is an option for first-time offenders after a period of 10 years has passed since the completion of the conviction or sentence.
  • General criminal expungements – This is an option for nonviolent felony offenses and misdemeanor convictions, often those related to drug offenses. You can also obtain expungements for a number of municipal and traffic violations and convictions.

You Paid The Price; You Deserve To Move On.

If you think this is a valuable option for your future, you may find it beneficial to start with a complete evaluation of your case. Your initial consultation with us is free, and you can make an appointment here or at 816-768-6900.
