What is an Expungement?
Whenever someone is charged with a criminal offense in North Carolina, that charge is public record. That information can be seen by anyone, including potential employers, landlords, or universities. An expungement is the processes of deleting all the information related to a criminal charge from your criminal record.
Who is Eligible for an Expungement?
North Carolina’s expungement statutes are complex and it’s important to speak with an attorney to determine if you are eligible for an expungement. As a general rule, expungements are only available if you were found not guilty at trial, or your case was dismissed by the district attorney. There are exceptions to this rule, however, such as being under 18 at the time of the conviction, or if a certain amount of time has elapsed without acquiring new charges.
If you are wondering if you are eligible for an expungement, give our attorneys a call for a free consultation.
What Our Clients Say
Scott did a great job from start to finish with my case. Kept me well informed throughout it all. Thanks again!
I was struggling to move forward with a 2 year old case. A couple weeks ago, I decided to call Girdwood & Williams and Scott Girdwood helped me take care of it. His office was friendly, highly professional and made communication very easy. To be honest, I've been burdened with this for a long time, and as anyone who's needed legal services knows, it's not easy. It is such a relief to finally be done. It all happened so quickly and efficiently, I'm in shock. A HUGE thank you to Mr. Girdwood for all his effort and time put toward success. I will solely recommend his law firm to anyone seeking legal counsel from here on out!
Wish it was possible to give more than 5 stars. A few years back I was in a bad car accident. With a lot of bills resulting from this accident I figured it would be smart of me to higher an attorney to represent me. I was referred Scott Girdwood and now I can’t thank him enough for what he did for me. He took on to fight my claim where there were a lot of factors contributing to determining fault. He stood beside my side the whole time and went above and behind keeping me in the loop with what was going on. He also educated me and how the process went so I was more understanding. From day one we new the other persons insurance was going to be a pain to fight. Scott fought three different attorneys and not once backed down. Almost 2 years after the original accident, Scott was able to get us settled outside of court. Once again can’t thank Scott enough for what he did for me!
Several years ago 2 family members and myself were in a horrible accident. Our van was totaled. The law firm who initially represented me was going to end up with more from the settlement than I was, and I was the one injured. They said if they worked all summer they could maybe get 400 to 500 dollars for me. I left them and went with Ben Williams. He was amazing. He got $5,000 dollars more in no time.
Scott Girdwood and Ben Williams are excellent attorneys. There are very knowledgeable of the law and fight hard for their clients when they need it the most. Highly recommended!
This law firm has handled several accidents for my family over the past few years. Ben Williams knows what he is doing and has gone above and beyond for us. Sabrina Ward has been extremely helpful and nice. These two have done everything they could to help us out with each accident, even the small one. I couldn’t be more happy with their work.
I recommend hiring Girdwood & Williams for even your smallest accident to take the stress away.
I strongly recommend using Girdwood and Williams. I got a speeding ticket a few months ago and called Scott Girdwood. I was able to speak with Scott on the phone immediately and he put my mind at ease. I paid him a reasonable fee over the phone and I didn’t even have to go to court! He was able to get my ticket reduced so it didn’t affect my license or my insurance. After my court date, Scott sent me a letter to let me know how everything turned out. He made this ordeal very easy for me and I am very thankful!
When I was hurt on the job, I had concerns whether the giant company I worked for had my best interests in mind, so I contacted Ben Williams. From the beginning, Ben told me what to expect and all the possible outcomes. Knowing that I have a wife and kids, Ben helped me make informed decisions to protect me and my family. When court ruling after court ruling when in my favor, the company I worked for agreed to settle, and I am very happy with the result. I have complete confidence in the professionals at Girdwood & Williams, and I would not hesitate to call on them again if needed.
My experience with Scott and the staff at Girdwood & Williams has been nothing but outstanding! I highly recommend them as they are very knowledgeable and responsive. Thanks again for your help!
