The Abilene Expunction Clinic is a first for the Big Country. The expunction process allows you to remove and/or seal away certain items on your criminal or arrest record. This is a free clinic, except for court charges (some financial assistance may be available). Nonetheless, it's an opportunity to clear your name.

Expunction clinics like these have helped thousands of Texans clear up their past criminal records, and/or arrests. Allowing you to finally apply for, or get the kind of job you couldn't get because of a criminal glitch on your records.

Don't worry, you will not be doing this alone because legal teams will be available to assist you in getting the proper documents ready and guide you through the correct filing process. The first step is finding out which Texas criminal records are eligible for expunction or nondisclosure.
