Expunction

San Antonio Expunction Lawyer

If you have been arrested for committing a crime, then you know how greatly your life can be affected in the time that follows; even if you weren’t actually convicted. Simply having an arrest on your criminal record, regardless of the circumstances or the outcome, can hinder many aspects of your future. You do not have to be haunted by your past; record expungement may be available to you.

Having a clean record is extremely important. A criminal record may harm your future chances at employment, education, and housing, to name a few. Even if you were only arrested and not convicted of a crime, it can still show up on your record, which is reason enough to contact an attorney for help with the expunction process.

If you have a criminal offense on your record, you may not realize just how damaging this can be to your future. Even if the crime took place many years in the past, it can still come back to haunt you. Every detail from your case, including you arrest, charges, and sentencing, will be available to the public. As the internet has made this information easily accessible, the number of people who have access to your private affairs is staggering. A mistake in your past could affect your ability to get a job, housing, loans, or even college acceptance.

Expungement Enables You To:

  • Tell employers that you have not been convicted of a crime
  • Become eligible for student loans
  • Become eligible for housing assistance
  • Become eligible for professional licenses and certificates
  • Tell friends and family that you have not been convicted of a crime
  • You will have nothing to hide when someone does a background check on you

Record Sealing & Expunction

Record sealing is the process of sealing arrests and certain cases from your public record, only allowing law enforcement agencies and select licensing boards to view them. This is accomplished through a Petition for Non-Disclosure. Expunction, on the other hand, allows for the erasure of your entire criminal record as though it had never occurred—including all computer records and reports relating to your arrest and any charges that were pending against you in court. Expungement or sealing of your criminal record is only available to you if you qualify under the law. A qualified lawyer can review the circumstances of your case and inform you if you are eligible under Texas or federal law.

  • "When you have been wrongfully accused of having an affair with a student, you must acquire legal counsel before you even speak to the police, even if you are the person who reports the rumors. Tylden Schaeffer advised me to not have a second interview with the police department and found time in his schedule to meet with me that day. After the meeting, I had a path to move forward on and that included a well written statement that Mr. Schaeffer crafted. After submitting this in lieu of a second interview with the police, there were no more problems with the school district or police department. Mr. Schaeffer did a superb job and had me resting more easily following our meetings. I would highly recommend Mr. Schaeffer to anyone in need of a Criminal Defense Attorney." - Anonymous

He is a highly intelligent and competent attorney. The Best!" - Anonymous

  • "I was represented by Mr. Shaeffer years ago (2004). He would travel from San Antonio all the way to Del Rio to represent me. My father and I were accused of wrong doing by federal agents and we had done nothing. We, my father and I were on trial simultaneously. We had hired an attorney and found out later he was friends with the prosecutor and wanted us to accept a plea bargain. “We did nothing wrong”, I cried to him. He insisted that we accept due to it being impossible to beat the Government. My father and I were close to giving up when we met Mr. Shaeffer. Mr. Shaeffer believed in us and fought for us. Because of him, I never saw prison walls nor was I ever away from my family. It was one of the most difficult times in my life, but thankfully we met a Godsend attorney and justice prevailed." - Anonymous
