An arrest can be a challenging, demoralizing experience. And an arrest record can inhibit your ability to secure a loan, land a job and gain acceptance into certain schools. But a criminal record need not be permanent.
Expunction (also known as expungement) is found under the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure and allows defendants to clear their names by having agencies that maintain criminal records destroy them. Hiring a lawyer to expunge your criminal record is a wise strategy, and Morgan Bourque is the Texas lawyer who can help you accomplish this important action.
Morgan proudly boasts successful track records as a former prosecutor and currently as a criminal defense lawyer. He understands the expectations of Texas judges, who grant expunctions. Between that critical experience, his knowledge of the law and the ability to understand the needs of his clients, he has secured the expunctions of hundreds of criminal records.
Morgan is a leading defense lawyer, one who has expunged several records for various reasons, including:
- Winning a not guilty verdict at trial
- Securing a dismissal from a judge prior to trial
- The prosecution drops charges prior to trial
- Overturning a conviction by successful appeal
- and by utilizing other provisions.
He advises clients on proper conduct necessary to complete a pretrial diversion program. These programs are available to keep a first conviction off a first-time offender’s records, so as not to jeopardize their professional and personal lives. This also requires collaboration with a prosecutor – and as a former assistant district attorney, Morgan knows how to present a client of his or her candidacy and assure the other side of the courtroom of their good will.
Non-disclosure Order (Sealing Record)
Morgan is also adept at securing non-disclosure orders through the courts, which seals criminal records from public view. This action helps evade media attention and keep prospective employers, admissions officers and loan officers from disqualifying you due to your criminal record. Though the record will not be sealed to most government agencies, many of Morgan’s clients have opted for this civil action in an effort to move on with their lives.
Good people can make mistakes and sometimes innocents get caught in a web of suspicion. No matter your situation, Morgan Bourque is the Texas lawyer to hire to expunge your criminal record.
