Are you or a loved one currently going through the criminal trial or investigation process? It is important to understand just how much is on the line during your proceedings. Jail time, major fines, and a permanently marked criminal record all have a way of wreaking havoc on your freedoms. However, an experienced criminal defense attorney can represent your best chance of seeing your charges reduced, or dropped altogether. The Law Offices of R. Wayne Richter are ready to take your case at their West Palm Beach or Stuart locations.

When your criminal record is marked, it can make future business and personal relationships extremely difficult. After all, when that offense is there for all to see, you are being judged before people even meet you. However, the sealing and expunction process represents a golden opportunity to turn your life around. When your criminal record is expunged, it generally means that your criminal history is removed from your official record, and will not appear on a criminal background check. Additionally, your criminal history is not available to be seen by the general public. In order to be eligible for this, “the charges brought against you by the State Attorney’s Office must have either (1) not been filed or (2) been subsequently dismissed, or Nolle Prosequi, and you must have no other prior criminal history.”

Expunction may just be what you need to have a more promising future. Attorney Wayne Richter will explain what your options are, and the best course of action to take in your situation. And, those facing criminal charges can feel comfortable in the hands of the experienced criminal defense lawyer. Don’t underestimate just how much his experience and knowledge can positively impact your case. Contact The Law Offices of R. Wayne Richter, today, and get started with a free initial consultation.
