You Need Criminal Defense Representation

It is extremely important that you consult with a criminal defense lawyer as quickly as possible. I will examine your case and present you with as many options as possible as to how to proceed. Whether we decide to accept a plea bargain or we proceed to trial, I will work tirelessly to protect your rights and defend you every step of the way.

Record Sealing And Expungement

Record sealing and expungement are terms you might hear with regard to your criminal defense case. Record sealing is the sealing of criminal records to prevent a third party from examining the details of your case. This is only available if your case has been dismissed, for example, after completing a deferred judgment or being declared not guilty at trial.

Expungement applies only to juvenile delinquency records. Expunged records are treated as if they never existed. Sealing or expunging records prohibits colleges, employers, landlords, banks or the public from accessing your records. To seal or expunge records, a separate civil action must be filed. For more information, and to see if your criminal records are eligible to be expunged, contact my law firm, The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, LLC, today by calling 970-237-5688 or toll free at 888-383-6179.

As part of my criminal defense practice, I act as legal representative at bail hearings, and parole and probation violation court appearances.
