Put the past behind you

While it is our goal to help you clear your criminal record, there are a few basic eligibility requirements you will need to meet in order to clear your conviction in Washington state following a criminal conviction:

  • You must have completely complied with the orders of the court in your case.
  • You must have no criminal felony or misdemeanor charges pending against you in any state.
  • For misdemeanor convictions:
    • You must have not been convicted of any new crimes in the last 3 years (5 years if your conviction was domestic violence related).
    • You must wait 3-5 years (depending on your conviction) after completing all court requirements (including probation).
    • You must not be subject to a no-contact order, and must not have violated a no-contact order in the last 5 years.
    • You cannot clear your criminal record of a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charge.
  • For felony convictions:
    • You must have complied with all of the orders of the court in your case.
    • Class C Felony Charges: You must have not been convicted of any new crimes in the last 5 years.
    • Class B Felony Charges: You must have not been convicted of any new crimes in the last 10 years.
    • Class A felonies, serious violent crimes, and most crimes against another person cannot be cleared from your criminal record.
    • It is sometimes possible, however, to vacate a 3rd Degree or 2nd Degree Assault and 2nd Degree Robbery charges, as long as the crime did not involve a firearm or deadly weapon, was not sexually motivated and was not committed against a law enforcement officer.

Our experienced attorneys can help determine if you meet these requirements and also if you qualify to restore your gun rights in Washington state.

If you meet these requirements to clear your criminal record, your next step will be to file a petition with the court that revoked your firearm rights. This process varies from court to court, so it is in your best interest to speak with an attorney who is experienced with restoring gun rights in Washington state. At a minimum, the process will involve getting a full criminal background check, preparing and filing a motion and order, and getting a signed order from a judge. The expungement of a criminal record in Washington state may involve dealing with the prosecuting attorney’s office, appearing in court to argue the merits of your motion, and potentially even appealing the court's decision.

Once your rights are restored, we ensure that the Washington Criminal History Repository and FBI are updated so that you will be able to clear your criminal record and any future background check you may be asked to take.
