Helping Clients Remove Damaging Items From Their Criminal Records
If you have completed probation after accepting a deferred adjudication plea agreement in Texas, the judge should have dismissed any criminal charges against you without recording a conviction. However, you may be surprised to learn that you still have a criminal record.
After a deferred adjudication, the only way to stop employers and other parties from seeing that you were arrested is to obtain a court order for expungement or nondisclosure.
I am Sylvia A. Cavazos, an experienced San Antonio expungement lawyer serving clients throughout south-central Texas. If your criminal record is interfering with your ability to move on with your life, I can act on your behalf to get your record permanently expunged or sealed.
Understanding the Difference Between Expungement and Nondisclosure
Expungement and nondisclosure are two separate but related concepts. Expungement means completely removing an item from your record. Nondisclosure, on the other hand, means that the record still exists, but agencies are prohibited, in most cases, from providing it to anyone.
While the Texas state courts rarely grant expungements, they frequently grant nondisclosure orders. If you retain me as your attorney, I will evaluate whether you may be eligible for an expungement. If not, I will help you pursue a petition for nondisclosure of the relevant records.
