Record Expungement During COVID-19

Put Your Criminal Record Behind You & Enjoy a Fresh Start

As of May 15th, national unemployment stands at 14.7% due to the impacts of COVID-19. Millions of people around the globe have been forced to stay at home to protect themselves and others from contracting the coronavirus. As a result, US job loss has skyrocketed, lives are being lost and livelihoods are drastically changing.

People who have criminal records, or merely an arrest for a crime on their record, may qualify to get their records expunged. The Justice & Accountability Center of Louisiana defines expungement as the “removal of a record from public access but does not mean destruction of the record. An expunged record is confidential, but remains available for use by law enforcement agencies, criminal justice agencies, and other state agencies as stated under Louisiana law.” Expungement could change your life by helping put the past behind you.

How Do I Get My Record Expunged?

First and foremost, hire Dewey & Braud Law, LLC to advocate for your best interests by working to expunge your record. Handling the expungement process alone can be daunting and time-consuming, which is why you can trust us to explain your options in a comprehensive yet understandable manner while taking care of the legalities to make the process more efficient for you.

Further, our attorney will help determine if you are eligible to get your court fees waived and will negotiate on your behalf accordingly. We strive to put your worries at ease by guiding you every step of the way and tackling the legal complexities of the expungement process head-on. We have your back.

You may qualify for record expungement if:

  • You were acquitted or your case was dismissed
  • You were convicted, but the requisite time barring the pursuit of an expungement has lapsed
  • You were arrested for a felony and convicted of a misdemeanor and you are currently on probation for your misdemeanor (you can request an expungement of your felony arrest under specific circumstances)

Having a clean record could make a huge difference in your ability to secure a job, and it’s especially crucial to get your record expunged immediately. This is because when more businesses start hiring again, you can focus on getting a job rather than working to expunge your record. To add, you can avoid the uncomfortable conversation in a job interview about what led to your criminal arrest and conviction, if applicable, and approach your job interview with pure confidence instead.

Refresh Your Reputation with an Expunged Record

In a time like this, it’s important that you proactively prepare for when the economy picks up so that you can focus on getting hired instead of stressing about how to restore your reputation. When you hire our skilled team to help you expunge your record, you can rely on us to take care of all the legal matters and keep you informed of your case while you focus on staying safe, healthy and prepared for your next job.
