Experienced Rights Restoration Lawyers

A criminal record can have a negative impact on your life. There are many reasons for wanting to have a criminal record set aside (Arizona) or expunged (Hawai’i). Many employers will not hire someone with a felony. You may be wanting to have your gun rights restored or regain your right to vote or possess a firearm. You may have been denied when applying for a lease on an apartment or other contracts as well. A felony conviction may also prevent a person from obtaining business and professional licenses, government secured loans, and housing.

Having your record expunged or set aside and putting your past behind you is a great way to move on with your life. Generally, a defendant who was convicted of a felony offense will lose certain civil rights.

These include the right to:

  • Possess a firearm
  • Hold public office
  • Serve on a jury
  • Vote

It is important to note that if you have a federal felony conviction, your gun rights cannot be restored at this time. In addition, if your Arizona state felony conviction was designated a “dangerous offense,” you will not be able to restore your right to own and possess a firearm. A dangerous offense means that the felony conviction involved the intentional or knowing infliction of serious physical injury or the use or exhibition of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument. It is important to schedule a consultation with an attorney who has experience in handling set-asides and restoration because there are rules based on specific charges, which your attorney should explain to you when reviewing your options. If you would like to explore the possibility of having your record set aside and your rights restored, first we will need to determine if you are eligible. To find out if you are eligible to have your record expunged or set aside, contact the Attorneys For Freedom Law Firm to schedule a Strategy Session.
