Expungements: Having A Clear Record Is Possible

Having any criminal record can significantly hinder your future. Finding a job, being approved for housing and even time spent with your family and friends can be negatively impacted.

Our board-certified criminal law attorneys have seen the negative affects that a criminal record can have on an individual’s life. At Edwards & Trenkle, PLLC, we strive to help people clear their record so they can have a fresh start moving forward. We are specialists in our field and can defend you from state or federal charges in court.

Defending Your Rights Since 1990

We know the nuances of North Carolina laws and have the experience to zealously defend against a variety of complex crimes. If you have already been convicted, we offer post-conviction relief, record sealing and expungement services.

Recent changes to the law have reduced the time it takes for your record to be expunged. This is available for nonviolent misdemeanors and some felony convictions. In many cases, the wait time may go from 15 years to just five or 10.

Our team can assist with:

  • Creating and filing the expungement petition
  • Expungement for serious crimes such as assault and theft
  • Guiding you through the statutes, process, nuances and complex laws
  • Attending court with you for hearings
  • Defending denials of expungement
