Helping You Expunge A Criminal Record So You Can Get On With Your Life
In 2012, the Indiana General Assembly passed a law that has become known as the Second Chance Law. The Second Chance Law gives individuals who have been convicted of a criminal offense a second chance by allowing them to expunge or clean up their criminal record.
While the expungement law intends to benefit those seeking to expunge their criminal background significantly, it also leaves many questions unanswered. There are also time restrictions on how and when a petition to file for an expungement. Failure to strictly adhere to these restrictions can result in the loss of your ability to file an expungement petition. As experienced criminal law attorneys, we understand the expungement laws and will work closely with you to ensure you avoid the common pitfalls. We intend to do everything we can to clear your name and not allow a criminal arrest to follow you around forever.
