This is a good question. The answer depends on what happens to your case.

If we get your case dismissed or you are acquitted at trial, we can get your arrest taken off your record. In the event you are convicted, we may be able to have your conviction expunged later, upon you successfully completing a period of probation.

Whether or not you are eligible for an expungement will depend on the type of crime in which you were convicted, your criminal history, and the type of sentence imposed.

If you have an old arrest or conviction that you want to be removed from your record, please contact us to see if we can help. In Baton Rouge 225-383-9703. Livingston 225-686-2311.
