former prosecutor now fighting for you

Colorado Springs Expungement Lawyer

If you’ve ever been arrested, regardless of the disposition of your case, the record of your arrest is a matter of public record and will show up in a background check when you are applying for a job or housing, or if you are being vetted to run for public office. Arrest information is even made available on the Internet to the general public, where it can wreak havoc with your reputation. Even if you were wrongly accused, the fact of your arrest can come back to haunt you, interfering with your life in myriad ways. That’s why it’s important to find a Colorado Springs expungement attorney near you with the background and skills needed to stand up for your rights.

Fortunately, Colorado allows records to be sealed or expunged in certain situations. If you are successful in having this done, any inquiry into your criminal past by anyone other than law enforcement will be answered “no record for this person.”

This is not, however, an easy process. You must petition the court to expunge or seal your record. This is best handled by a criminal attorney in Colorado Springs who is familiar with the complexities of expungement.

Who Qualifies for Expungement?

You may qualify to have your records expunged in these situations:

  • You were a minor at the time of your offense and were adjudicated delinquent in a juvenile court.
  • You participated in and fulfilled the terms of a diversion program.
  • You were arrested, but the state never filed charges, and the statute of limitations has run.
  • Charges were dismissed, whether dropped in conjunction with a plea bargain or dismissed outright.
  • You were tried and found not guilty.
  • The case was dismissed in exchange for a guilty plea in another case.
  • Your charge was one of certain low-level misdemeanors.
  • You were convicted of certain felony drug offenses more than ten years ago.

Some records, for example, those pertaining to sexual offenses, cannot ever be expunged.

What Our Clients Have to Say

“I would highly recommend Steve for any criminal or DUI charges you are facing. Other lawyers wanted me to attend AA classes for a first offense DUI and to plead guilty to a felony I did not commit, or they had no interest on how I wanted my case handled. Mr. Rodemer investigated and got my criminal case dismissed and expunged from my records, turned my DUI into a Wreckless driving offense and the DMV dismissed my case so I was able to get my license back immediately. I interviewed 6 lawyers before I found Steve. Best decision in my life!”
