We can expunge most felony and misdemeanor convictions leaving your record clear and your future brighter. If you are not currently on probation or facing any current charges, Utah law allows you to have your misdemeanor and felony convictions expunged.
A person qualifies to expunge records of arrest, investigation, and detention for a crime for which there has been no conviction if:
at least 30 days have passed since the arrest;
there are no criminal cases pending; and
one of the following occurred:
no charges were filed;
charges were filed, but the case was dismissed with prejudice;
charges were filed, but the person was acquitted at trial; or
the statute of limitations has expired.

Having a criminal record can make applying for a job difficult. After 9/11, more than 70% of employers are performing background checks, which can make your life very difficult. People wanting to expunge their criminal record simply want to move on and put their past behind. Fortunately, Utah offers many remedies to this problem and you can take advantage of this by expunging your arrest, conviction or juvenile records. Below are some benefits you can expect to see after your Utah criminal record is expunged.
Benefits of Expungement
Tell employers you have not been convicted of a crime
Become eligible for student loans and apply for credit
Become eligible for housing assistance
Become eligible for professional licenses and certificates
To stop the embarrassment and fear of background checks being performed on you
10 Years - Any alcohol/drug related traffic
7 Years - 2nd and 3rd Degree Felonies
5 Years - Class "A" Misdemeanor
4 Years - Class "B" Misdemeanor
3 Years - All other Misdemeanor and infractions
30 Days - Dismissals
This time period does not begin until all confinement and probation has been completed, and fines are paid.
We can apply under Utah law to have your conviction reduced by up to two degrees in class. For example, a second degree felony could be reduced to a class A misdemeanor. A reduction in class by just one degree can reduce the time needed to wait for expungement by several years, plus it can immediately restore rights, such as the right to possess a firearm, that are lost.
