In Washington, it is possible to remove a conviction from your Washington State Patrol record. This is also known as vacating or expunging a conviction. Attorneys at Tario & Associates, P.S. are practiced in clearing criminal convictions in the state of Washington. Under a very specific set of circumstances, certain felonies and/or misdemeanor offenses can be vacated. Our attorneys also seek to have records of an arrest or prosecution removed. This is especially important because potential employers regularly use criminal history background checks in today’s computer age. Background checks are often utilized when we apply for a job, mortgage, or even to live in an apartment complex. Additionally, if you apply for college or graduate school, you may have to disclose your criminal history. Fortunately, vacating your criminal records allows you to state that you were never convicted of the crime that was vacated. In addition, the attorneys at Tario & Associates, P.S. assist clients who want to restore their voting rights or the right to own and possess firearms in the state of Washington.
