A Thorough, Diligent Attorney Fighting For You
Expunging Your Criminal Record
Having a misdemeanor or any type of criminal record can severely limit your ability to land a job, find a place to live and reduce your educational opportunities. A felony conviction in Virginia means you will lose your right to vote and your right to carry a firearm. Even if you were not convicted of a crime, simply having criminal charges on your record can cause problems.
I have the experience and knowledge to guide you through the court’s petition process for an expungement of your charges. We’ll work together to see if we can get the record of your arrest sealed.
Restore Your Right To Possess Firearms
Federal law prohibits people convicted of felonies, misdemeanor domestic violence and other charges from possessing guns and ammunition. However, the state of Virginia offers a process for restoring your right to bear arms if your felony conviction was in a Virginia circuit court and not federal court. If you have lost the right to carry a gun due to a criminal conviction, I can evaluate your situation and advise you on whether to proceed with a petition. If you are a good candidate, I can help you petition the court to get your right to carry a gun restored.
