Expunctions

An expunction is the process of removing arrests and convictions from your public record. Without an expunction, your criminal history can be viewed by schools, employers and housing authorities to name a few. Having your record expunged will allow you to start anew, with a clean slate.

The process may take several months, but is well worth the wait. You must, however, hire an experienced Texas lawyer who understands the law governing expunction of criminal records.

From our Energy Corridor offices in Houston, Mingledorff Law has successfully represented students in criminal courts. Ken Mingledorff is a former special judge in criminal matters, and Judy Mingledorff is a former special crimes prosecutor. Together, they have over 60 years in experience.

Expunction — Requirements To Seal A Criminal Record

Under Texas state law you may be eligible for an expunction under these circumstances:

  • If you have been arrested but not charged
  • If you have been found not guilty
  • If you have had your criminal case dismissed
  • If you have had your case dismissed after serving deferred adjudication probation for a class C misdemeanor
  • Misdemeanor or felony charge where you were acquitted or found not guilty by a judge or jury

Even if you obtained a final conviction for one charge, other aspects, such as your arrest record, of your criminal record may be expunged when the conviction involves a lesser offense.
