FREE EXPUNGEMENT OR SEAL OF TEXAS CRIMINAL RECORDS (FORMS AND MORE) BECAUSE EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE
Criminal records can follow you the rest of your life, and while many will assert that’s how it should be, there are many instances where wiping someone’s slate clean is the fair thing to do — it’s not sneaky or wrong. In fact, expungement of criminal records has been approved and provided for by the Texas legislature and the Texas courts. It’s legal in Texas to clear or erase or seal your past criminal record in many situations and it’s not that hard to do.
Thing is: it costs money to do it, more often than not, because a lawyer is usually hired to handle the process of “expungement.” I’ve been hired by many clients to have their criminal records expunged or sealed, as have many of my fellow Texas criminal defense lawyers.
However, some people cannot afford to have an attorney take their case in order to get their criminal records expunged even if their future careers, scholarships, jobs, military service, and other important parts of their future would benefit from an expungement.
I want to change that for them and help people who could benefit from an expungement — as a Board Certified Criminal Defense lawyer practicing in Dallas, I’ve seen many situations where people who have made a mistake or an indiscretion deserve that second chance. It’s a second chance that can mean all the different for someone – and their families.

2. How to Expunge Your Texas Criminal Record: Free Expungement Forms
In my years representing all sorts of people (young and old, male and female, etc.) who have been accused of committing a crime here in Texas, I have come to understand the complexities of criminal law — not just in the practice of law, but in all the ways that a single criminal case can impact a person and their loved ones. One criminal matter can change a person’s life forever — and permanently alter the lives of their parents, kids, spouses, family and friends.
If an expungement can help these people and if they meet the criteria for an expungement under Texas law, then I believe that the expungement eligibility tests we have created here should be made available to them.
Accordingly, I have placed the following documents here for your review as well as in my online Digital Library. I’ll be sharing their availability in social media as well (Twitter, Google+).
I believe that these checklists, summaries, and forms are very helpful and useful and I want to share this info to help people in need of a second chance, if possible.
