Sealing or Expunging Criminal Records

Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyers Helping You Clear or Seal Your Records

Sealing or expunging records can be a complex process, if you think you may be eligible, contact the attorneys at Fuicelli & Lee, PC. When your records become sealed, it forbids anyone, except the court and police, to access those records. Many juvenile delinquency cases can be sealed.

Individuals who are eligible to have their records sealed or expunged:

  • Charges were dismissed, either outright, or as a part of a plea bargain
  • Acquitted, or found not guilty, after a trial
  • Arrested, but no charges were filed
  • The case was dismissed for a guilty plea in another case
  • Convicted or adjudicated as a juvenile delinquent

Our experienced team will file the necessary lawsuits to have the records sealed which will protect your privacy and fully clear your name. We can have the records removed from your criminal history so that anyone who inquires will be told there is “no such record for that person present.” While the criminal records don’t just disappear from the court house they are sealed, or expunged, and a very limited number of people are allowed access.

In the summer of 2007, Colorado law changed to make individuals convicted of certain low level felony and misdemeanor drug offenses eligible for sealing as well. If you were convicted of a drug offense, and it has been more than ten years, contact one of our experienced attorneys for a free case evaluation to determine whether or not you are eligible. 

If you think you may fit into one of the above categories, call or e-mail the experienced criminal defense lawyers at Fuicelli & Lee, PC. They will use their experience to get you the best possible outcome for your situation.
