Collins County Expunction

Clear You Record with Our Attorneys

A common question is, “How do I clear my record of my DWI arrest?” Typically, a DWI conviction is permanent, meaning that it will be on your public and law enforcement records forever.

However, there are a few exceptions. You may have the right to clear your public and law enforcement records of your DWI arrest for the following reasons:

  • 1) You are found NOT GUILTY. If you are found not guilty you may be entitled to an expunction of your records. An expunction erases all public and private records of your DWI arrest.
  • 2) Your DWI charge is dismissed. If we obtain a dismissal of your DWI charge you may be entitled to an expunction. Depending on the circumstances, you may need to wait for the statute of limitations to run.
  • 3) Your DWI charge is reduced to a non-DWI charge. We have a history of successfully obtaining reductions of our client’s DWI charges in certain counties. A reduction happens when we successfully get the State to agree to reduce a DWI charge to an Obstruction of a Highway charge. If your DWI is reduced you may be entitled to a non-disclosure that clears your public records of your DWI charge.
  • 4) NEW STATE LAW FOR NON-DISCLOSURE OF DWI CONVICTION. There is a relatively new State law that may allow a person who has been convicted of a DWI to obtain a non-disclosure that will clear your public records of your DWI conviction. WARNING! This is a new law that is very complicated and is not guaranteed. If the State objects to the non-disclosure you may not be entitled to clear your record. In addition, to be eligible for a non-disclosure under the new law you are required to complete very stringent probation conditions.

We have seen many uninformed lawyers incorrectly advising clients about this law. Unfortunately, many people will plea guilty under the false assumption that they will be entitled to clear their record. A lawyer MUST know the law and the local district attorney very well before advising a client on the new non-disclosure law.

If you have been arrested for a DWI, contacting the lawyers at Biederman & Burleson can immediately increase your chances at your record being successfully cleared.
