When your criminal record interferes with your life it is time to talk with a lawyer. Not just any lawyer. Talk to a criminal defense lawyer that has sealed multiple criminal cases with success!
A criminal defense attorney is accustomed to looking at criminal records, court records and records from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. These records are the black and white criteria for Sealing and the tools I use in determining which case or cases can be sealed based on current Colorado law. I need to hear your story as well to know what is causing you problems.
Arrests that have not resulted in charges filed by a prosecutor can be sealed from the public eye. If a case was dismissed by the prosecution, the court will “dismiss” the case but it still remains on your criminal record. If you received a deferred judgment or were in a Diversion program and met all of the requirements without violation the case will be dismissed by the court but will also remain on a criminal record. The only way to get that ball and chain removed is by getting the record sealed.
Hiring a criminal defense attorney familiar with the civil procedure of eFiling the proper documents, when and who to file the mandatory (I notify up to 25) agencies and verifying the criminal record has been sealed ensures your job will be done right—the first time. We have a 100% success rate.
Sealing criminal records is the single most important correction you can make for your future.
