When a person is placed under arrest, charged with committing a criminal
offense or convicted of a crime, all of the information pertaining to
the case will remain on his or her criminal record until it has been expunged
or the record has been sealed. If you are interested in getting your criminal
record cleared so as to remove any evidence of past misdeeds and criminal
acts, a criminal defense attorney from our firm can help you determine
whether you meet the eligibility requirements for
expungement. Not all criminal offenses can be expunged from a person's record.
Violent crimes and felony offenses are not generally eligible for expungement in the
state of Georgia.
Your eligibility for expungement will depend on:
- The severity of the crime;
- Whether or not you were actually convicted;
- How much time has passed since your arrest or conviction;
- Whether or not your sentence has been successfully completed; and
- Whether or not you have been convicted of any other crimes.
As a request for expungement can be denied, we advise you retain legal
counsel prior to making an attempt to clear your criminal record on your
own. The Schneider Law Firm is a Savannah-based firm that provides aggressive
legal representation to those individuals who have found themselves facing
criminal charges and penalties. For more than 15 years, we have been unwavering

much greater chance of getting your expungement approved with our legal
