SEAL OR EXPUNGE CRIMINAL RECORD
Hire an Attorney Who Will Fight For Your Rights!
If you have an arrest in your past and want to keep it private or if you are seeking a new job or educational opportunities, you may want to have your criminal record sealed or expunged.
Tennessee provides public access to criminal history records, so anyone with access to the internet is able to retrieve public data, including your criminal history information. Criminal history is defined as a record that is created when a subject is arrested and fingerprinted. It contains the disposition of the charge including whether it's a conviction, acquittal, dismissal of charges before trial or any other disposition.
In order to prevent your criminal record from adversely affecting your career, educational and housing opportunities, it is important to hire an attorney help you expunge or seal your criminal record.
Benefits of Sealing or Expunging Your Record
Everyone can make mistakes, and having your criminal history sealed can give you a second chance. Your criminal charge will no longer be available as a public record. Additionally, with your criminal record sealed or expunged, you may be legally permitted to deny or choose not to acknowledge any prior arrests you may have when applying for certain jobs, housing, or educations.
You must disclose your prior criminal record in the following situations
- When seeking employment with a criminal justice agency;
- When a defendant in criminal prosecution;
- In subsequent requests for sealing or expungement; or
- When applying to law school or to practice law.
- When seeking employment with certain state governmental agencies;
