Changes to expunction law may help you clean your criminal records.

In the last legislative session the legislature made many changes to the expunction laws, which will enable thousands of Texans to clean their criminal records. An expunction is the legal process you use to get an arrest (that did not lead to a conviction) erased off of your criminal history. Many people are arrested and then never prosecuted or the charges are later dismissed. These people are eligible for an expunction once the statute of limitations (the time line for the state to file charges) for their offense ran. The problem was that many felony offenses had statute of limitations that may last a decade or sometimes a lifetime. The new law drastically reduces these waiting times making thousands of Texas able to get an expunction based on a prior arrest. The waiting times do vary by level of offense and I would recommend speaking to attorney to see if you are eligible. Many of us provide free consultations.

"Mr. Bloomquist took the time to explain the entire legal proceedings and answered every question that I had thoroughly which prompted me to hire him immediately. After two and a half years after the false allegation was made and with three different law enforcement agencies pursuing an arrest, I was indicted on a felony crime within Bexar county in June of 2015. During the next 26 months of uncertainty, Mr. Bloomquist aggressively attacked and challenged the state's evidence and even scared off two to the top prosecutors within the district attorneys office on taking this case to a jury trial. After months of hard work and an extensive knowledge of the law, the state dismissed their case against me."
