Why Do I Need A Lawyer?

The laws governing expungement of a criminal record are complex. Most people need an attorney to ensure their record is clean.

One common cause for confusion is that you receive an expungement when you complete probation, but this does not remove the offense from public background checks. A full expungement takes the offense off of background checks.

In Oklahoma, expungement applies to all cases in which you successfully complete a deferred sentence. In some cases, it applies to felonies, but there is a waiting period to expunge a felony from your record.
