Tennessee Expungement Law Success Story

Today, I was delighted to received an order of expungement. An expungement is an order from the court directing the clerk of the court to destroy the records of the criminal charge or conviction.. One of our services we provide is to expunge any criminal charges possible. Ordinarily, only cases that are dismissed, retired, or one was found not guilty are eligible for expungement. What made this order of expungement special ?

In 2012, the Tennessee State Legislature passed an expanison of the expungement law in Tennessee. It allows certain types of criminal convictions to be expunged. It was a great law. One drawback was it was unclear of whether some older crimes could be expunged. Our office filed a petition to expunge a criminal charge not knowing if we would be successful. A forty year old case was expunged. The take away is to file the petition and see what happens.
