Expungement / Restriction

Expungement/Restriction Attorney in Atlanta

Clear Your Record - Improve Your Future

The process of restricting a criminal record helps an individual clear his/her name from past arrests. By working with an experienced attorney, you can have your criminal arrest information and court records restricted so that the general public and employers cannot access your arrest records. Since Georgia’s restriction law changed several years ago, making it possible to get arrest information restricted from criminal histories and court records, the lawyers at Ross & Pines, LLC have helped countless clients move on with their lives and careers without fear of someone finding out about their past mistakes and arrests.

If you are looking to restrict your criminal record and move forward with your life, an Atlanta criminal defense attorney from Ross & Pines, LLC may be able to help.


For more information about your legal options, contact Ross & Pines, LLC today! We offer free case evaluations.


What Cases Can Be Restricted?

If you were arrested and the case was dismissed, your arrest information is most likely eligible to be restricted. On the other hand, only certain convictions can be restricted. Felony convictions cannot be restricted; however, if you entered your plea under the First Offender Act then you are eligible to have your case discharged, which will remove the information from your criminal history. Certain misdemeanor convictions are eligible for restriction, but only if you were under the age of 21 when you were convicted. Even if your case has already been restricted from your criminal history or if you were discharged as a First Offender, your court records may still be accessible through the Clerk’s office, Sheriff’s department and the internet. We can help restrict all of your case information so that it cannot be viewed by employers, neighbors and the general public.

Experienced Representation for Criminal Cases

Even if your case is dismissed, your criminal arrest information is available to anyone who has an internet connection and knows where to look. If you truly want to protect your privacy and your future, you will need to get your arrest information restricted.

Restriction is a multi-step process and the laws are constantly changing. At Ross & Pines, LLC, we have extensive knowledge and experience handling restriction matters. We will file the appropriate petitions to make sure that all of the arrest and court records are restricted from public view. We will also make sure that the Clerk and the Sheriff remove your arrest information from the internet. A restricted record can help you move forward with your life.
