Hiring Jeff Kennedy turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge!

We did exactly as Jeff instructed and the case was dismissed. There are no words to explain how happy we are with his performance.

Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Do I Need a Lawyer to Get an Expungement?

Getting an expungement is an appealing option to many people suffering the impact of a previous criminal record. In recent years, updates to Texas law have made it possible for even more people to request an expungement of their records. 

Many people are uncertain about the role of an attorney for getting an expungement. If you’re wondering, “Do I need a lawyer to get an expungement?” read about requirements in Texas and how the process works. For more detailed information, schedule a consultation with a criminal defense lawyer from our firm.

How Getting an Expungement with a Lawyer Works in Texas

Expunction can be complicated for people unfamiliar with the law. In essence, Texas grants expungements only in cases that meet certain criteria. 

To answer the question, “Do I need a lawyer to get an expunction?” the answer is “no.” There are, however, certain risks to going it alone. You will have to pay a nonrefundable filing fee in order to file your expunction claim, plus processing fees. 

The cost of the fee will depend on the county in which you’re filing for expunction, but it may cost several hundred dollars. This is why consulting an attorney can help you to avoid paying a filing fee twice after a mistake, or finding out after filing that you aren’t eligible for an expunction after all.
