An expungement attorney can help with your case in Pennsylvania in various capacities. They can explain to you your eligibility if you're, in fact, eligible for an expungement, or perhaps why you may not be eligible, and if, say, there's other options, including, say, a record sealing or limited access or even a pardon.
If a person is eligible in almost all instances, an experienced attorney can take all steps with respect to the expungement process in an effort to make sure that the process goes as smoothly and as faithfully as possible. Often, a person seeking to clear up their record would not have to do anything and they could leave it all in the attorney's hands from start to finish. There's obviously a benefit in that regard.
An attorney can make sure that the process goes smoothly, favorably correctly. There's other parties involved in the expungement process if negotiations have to be had with the district attorney's office in limited instances to try to get the district attorney's office consent regarding the request. That's a step that an attorney can take. If a contested hearing were required, if there's some objection, an attorney would be able to represent the person in court in an effort to have the judge grant the expungement.
An attorney can help in various capacities. If something's at stake, and in clearing up one's record, there is something at stake, you should have an experienced Pennsylvania attorney involved in helping you through the process.
