Expunction of Criminal Records in Dallas
Clear Your Criminal Record for a Brighter Future
Expungement refers to the process of sealing arrest and conviction records. A criminal record can create difficult downstream consequences whether you (or your child) was arrested or convicted. Having a criminal record can affect your ability to get a job, rent a home, or obtain a loan.
You may be able to clear an arrest from your record through a process called expunction if:
- Charges were never filed, or charges were filed but then dismissed
- You were acquitted
- You were pardoned or otherwise granted relief based on your actual innocence
- You have not been tried and the prosecutor recommends expunction
Getting your record expunged can be an important step to clear your record of criminal charges. Speak to our Dallas expungement lawyer at the Law Offices of Robert Gregg to learn whether your record can be cleared.

Expunging a Criminal Arrest or Conviction
Expungements provide a legal remedy to clear your criminal history from your record. Once your record is expunged, you no longer need to tell potential employers about your criminal history and your conviction will not be visible to local, state, and federal authorities. It will be as though the criminal charge never existed.
Not everyone is eligible to get your record expunged, but we recommend that you consult with us to see if you meet Texas' requirements for expungements.
Some of the relevant provisions that may allow you to seek expungement include:
- Criminal case dismissed
- Texas class "C" misdemeanors, including traffic violations
- Successful completion of deferred adjudication (order of non-disclosure)
- Successful completion of probation period
