Virginia has stricter laws than most states in regards to expunging your criminal record but it is possible under certain circumstances. If you meet the requirements for expunging your record then contact our office online or via telephone and we will assist you with the process.
Expunging Virginia criminal records in cases ending in acquittal, dismissal, or abandonment by the State
Virginia law allows you to expunge your record if your case has ended in an acquittal at trial, a dismissal, or if the Commonwealth has filed a “nolle prosse” declaring they will not prosecute the offense. Expunging a criminal record can be of great benefit as it allows one to not have to disclose the record for employment related background checks and other situations that may require a disclosure of your background. If you wish to expunge your record then you should hire an attorney as a mistake in the process can make the difference between the Court granting your request or denying it.
J.D. Garrett and the Garrett Law Group, PLC can assist you in expunging your criminal record if you meet the conditions described above. We will file the necessary Petitions and other required documents so that the process may be completed for you as quickly as possible. There are several steps to this process.

We will complete these steps for you as quickly as possible. Contact us online or by telephone to schedule your initial consultation.
