Can a DUI be expunged?

By Keffer Hirschauer LLP

A lot of times when we’re dealing with DUI arrests and convictions, people want to know when and how they can expunge it. And unfortunately, there’s no perfect answer. The reason there’s no perfect answer is that different types of DUIs can be expunged at different times and some need prosecutorial approval.

It’s incredibly important that if expungement is something that a client desires that they make sure they’re coming to someone who fully understands the process because expungement can only be done once in your life and you have to expunge every potential conviction charge, arrest or dismissal within one year of the filing of the first petition. You need to make sure that all that’s being addressed at the same time.

We here at Keffer Hirschauer always do an extensive search to make sure we find what’s out there. That way, we can properly expunge everything the first and only time it’s exists.
