What We Do

At Colorado Record Sealing, our area of interest is the sealing and expunging of records for clients with past charges. However, we can also provide trial and appellate level representation for clients accused of criminal offenses and traffic violations. Our team is here to assist you with both. We know that previous charges and convictions can follow you around like a shadow, putting a damper on the new life you try to build. We’re here to eliminate the shadow so you can get on with your life. We can represent clients in the sealing and expungement of:

  • Arrest & Criminal Records: If a past arrest or criminal charge is affecting your life, our team can work to seal your record, so you can move on from the past.
  • Criminal Conviction Records: A criminal conviction on your record can automatically disqualify you from certain opportunities, making it hard for you to build a new life. We can help you seal or expunge these records so you can start with a clean slate.
  • Juvenile Arrest and Criminal Records: Unfortunately, mistakes from your youth can affect you long into adulthood, even if you’ve moved on from that part of your life. We can help seal your juvenile records, so they don’t affect your success as an adult.
  • Petition for Removal from the Sex Offender Registry: Many past sex offenders are forced to register for life, hindering their ability to get a job or find a home. If you’re tired of this practice, you may qualify to petition the court to have your name removed from the registry. We can help you through this process.
  • Drug Convictions: If you have past drug charges, they can follow you through life, even after you’ve long overcome your problem. Our team can help seal or expunge your record so you can have a fresh start.
  • Municipal and Petty Offense Convictions: Even minor convictions can affect your life for years. Our team is here to help expunge past petty offense convictions or seal your records, so you no longer have to worry about your past interfering with your future.
  • Minor in Possession of Alcohol or Marijuana: Don’t allow the mistakes you made in your younger days to affect the rest of your life. With our help, you can seal or expunge your minor record of alcohol or marijuana possession
