Texas Setting Aside of Conviction

Is a criminal record preventing you from getting a good job, holding you back from earning more money or causing you embarrassment? We have cleared more than 19,000 criminal records. If you have criminal record in Texas, we want to help you by having your case set aside.

Unfortunately, recent appellate cases have held that the trial court has an extremely short amount of time in which this relief can be given to defendants. That coupled with the discretion that a judge possesses to grant or deny such a request has made the chances of success extremely low. Therefore, we are no longer offering this service. Alternatively, we recommend our pardon service.

More than 80 percent of employers conduct background checks. The internet has even made it possible for friends and neighbors to do a background check on you for just a few dollars. The good news is that many people are eligible to have their criminal record cleared.

We are one of the nation’s leading criminal record clearing law firms and we also offer options to clear your record from the places that matter most— leading background check companies.

Take the first steps to a better life now by doing our free online evaluation and see if you are eligible to have your record cleared.

Texas law allows most people who were convicted of a crime that have successfully completed probation within the past 30 days or about to complete their sentence to have their conviction set aside. This means that you are no longer considered convicted of the crime and your firearm rights can be restored. While the court record or arrest record may still appear on some background checks, once the conviction is set aside it will appear as a dismissed case with no finding of guilt.

The judge looks at certain factors to determine if you are rehabilitated, and the judge will then determine if it is in the interest of justice to have your case dismissed. You can read more about the factors that the judge considers in the Frequently Asked Questions section.

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 Texas takes anywhere from 4 to 6 months, depending on county. The courts operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you start, the sooner your record is cleared.

We charge a flat rate for a Texas set aside. 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.

Our exclusive Expedited Record Clearance Update service allows us to have the leading background check companies reflect changes to your criminal record in less than 14 days, instead of months and even years like our competitors.
