Expungement Of DUI/DWI Convictions
If you have a past conviction for DUI or DWI, this can make it difficult to secure certain types of jobs, especially at companies that are contracted to provide services to the U.S. government. Under certain circumstances, Missouri law allows past convictions for drunk driving to be removed from your record through a process called “expungement.”
You can qualify for expungement if your conviction occurred at least 10 years ago, and you have had no other drunk driving convictions since then. We can help you understand the expungement process and work to take the steps necessary to clear your record.
