Experience Matters:
record expungement for dallas-fort worth

Are you looking to clear your criminal record and start fresh? McCarty-Larson specializes in record expungement, helping individuals in Ellis, Johnson, Tarrant, and Dallas counties to secure a brighter future.

What is Record Expungement?

An expunction, often called an “expungement,” is a powerful court order that permanently removes all records of an arrest in Texas and its outcome. Once expunged, these records are destroyed, and no one – including police, prosecutors, or judges – can access or consider them. In most cases, you can legally deny that you were ever arrested, even under oath. It is one of the most effective tools available under Texas law to clear your record. Our Fort Worth expunction lawyers help dozens of people every year obtain this powerful relief.

are you eligible?

To be eligible for an expunction in Texas,
your case must have been:
  • Dismissed

  • No-billed by a grand jury

  • Acquitted (either at trial or on appeal)

  • Never filed – meaning you were never charged – and the statute of limitations has run

  • Never filed – and a waiting period has passed (partial expunction)

  • The indictment was quashed due to a lack of probable cause and the statute of limitations has run

  • Resolved as a Class C offense that was dismissed after successful completion of deferred adjudication probation

  • Pardoned

  • Reversed and acquitted by a Court of Appeal

  • Recommended to be expunged by the prosecutor

Why Do Expunctions Exist?

Many arrests result from a momentary lapse in judgment, often influenced by factors like anger, alcohol, peer pressure, or youthful mistakes. Unfortunately, even a one-time error can have lifelong repercussions. In Texas, an arrest record can hinder your ability to get into college, secure employment, lease a vehicle, or finance a home – it’s a mistake that keeps affecting your life.

However, there is hope. In Texas, you can have your criminal records erased or sealed through an expunction or a nondisclosure. Our Fort Worth expunction lawyers have successfully obtained numerous expunctions in Tarrant County over the years. If you believe you are eligible for an expunction, please contact our law firm today for a free consultation. We will review your case and help you move forward from your past.

Clearing Your Record: A Fresh Start

Fortunately, for some individuals, there is a way to start anew by removing the impact of a criminal charge or conviction from their lives through the process of expunction. This allows you to wipe the slate clean and prevent a past mistake from continuing to affect your future.

What’s The Difference Between An Expunction And Nondisclosure?

In Texas, there are two primary methods to keep a criminal record private: an expunction and a nondisclosure. Both require a judge's order, but they serve different purposes. An expunction completely erases a criminal record, while a nondisclosure seals it from public access. An expunction is the optimal choice for those who qualify.
