It's Been 15+ Years Since my Misdemeanor Conviction in NC, Can I Have it Removed From my Record?

In most instances, the answer is… Yes!  

Obviously, there are some restrictions, so first, a background check is required.  This is to correctly identify the case or cases and their details.  It is also to ensure that the potential client has no other convictions (Felony or Misdemeanor).

From the background check, our team is able to see if there are any other cases which could also be filed for expungement.  In the state of North Carolina, if you have multiple offenses that occurred within the same 12 month period, it could be possible to file for them all to be expunged.

In a job interview, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.  If you are able to erase your criminal record it's certainly a worthwhile effort.

The expungement process and all of the rules can be quite overwhelming.  At The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel, PLLC, we have an incredible team who is well versed in the North Carolina expungement process and would be happy to assist you.  For a free consultation all you have to do is call (919) 585-1486.  You can also become familiar with our team by visiting our website,
