The state of Washington allows the court to vacate certain nonviolent convictions. Once vacated (expunged), the case is no longer deemed a conviction. State law gives you the right to state to anyone, including prospective employers, that you were NOT convicted of that offense, after a vacate motion has been granted.
With more than 80 percent of employers conducting background checks, having your record vacated is a great investment.
Once a conviction is vacated (expunged), the fact that you have been convicted of the offense will not be included in your criminal history for purposes of determining a sentence in any subsequent conviction. For all purposes, including responding to questions on employment or housing applications, a person whose conviction has been vacated may state that he or she has never been convicted of that crime.
Not all offenses are eligible and you must meet a waiting period that starts from the time you complete your probation and pay all fines and restitution. Take the free online eligibility test to see if you are eligible. The waiting periods are:
Felonies prior to 1984 did not have an expungement statute. Therefore, we can petition the judge and ask for the current expungement law to be applied.
We start the same day you sign up. Having handled more than 12,000 cases, we know how to get records cleared as fast as possible. The time it takes varies by court, but the typical case in Washington takes about 3 to 4 months. The courts operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you start, the sooner your record is cleared.
Our flat fee includes all costs. We will conduct the research, file the necessary motions, respond to written or oral opposition from the District attorney, and send one of our attorneys to court to argue the case in front of the judge.
In most cases, you will not have to physically appear in court. You can let us handle all the work, while you track the progress of your case online.
We have a money back guarantee on most cases. We also have a low-price guarantee. Just show us a competitor’s quote or ad and we will match it.
