Louisiana DWI Defense When You Need it the Most

  • Does an Expungement Erase My Record?
    No! An expungement does NOT erase your criminal record. An expungement SEALS your past criminal convictions or arrests from PUBLIC view, meaning public agencies (employers, landlords, etc.) do not have access to your past criminal record.
  • How long does it take for the expungement to be complete?
    The time it takes for an expungement to be complete (accepted by the courts), depends on the District Court that you are filing in. Expungements can take between 8-12 months. In some situations, it can take longer. When having an attorney file your expungement for you, you can rest assure that your attorney will keep up with the process of your expungements, and update you on any new information.
  • I am trying to apply for jobs, ASAP but I need an expungement! Can you expedite this for me?"
    The expungement process can not be expedited. It is an official court process, that must go through all of the checks and balances of the court system before it is approved. Remember, an expungement can take between 8-12 months before it is approved and your criminal record is sealed from public record. It is best to start the expungement process at least 8 months before seeking employment.
