Sealing Court Records

Often times, having a conviction vacated or a record expunged/deleted is not enough to keep the charge from following you.  Vacated convictions and deleted records will typically continue to show up on background investigations.  Washington General Rule 15 (GR 15) offers a solution – sealing court records.  By sealing a record, the Court removes the records from the public view such as from internet searches and criminal justice agency searches.  Additional steps may be necessary to force private companies and agencies to remove the information from their database.

Sealing records is a powerful tool.  Given it’s power, there are strict requirements for eligibility and complex law governing its use.  The Court allows a record to be sealed under a variety of circumstances  depending on the record requested sealed. The process can be complicated and difficult.  We understand the process and are experienced and successful in having records sealed.  Call us to see how we can help you move past your past and start living for your future.
