Many misdemeanor and felony charges and convictions can be sealed such that they are deemed to have never occurred. Civil and firearms rights are restored. We usually do multiple expungements with each client.
EFFECT OF EXPUNGEMENT:
The crime does not need to be listed on applications because it was deemed to have never occurred. The records are physically sealed and computer entries removed. Mugshots should be removed. Felons become non-felons. Civil and hunting rights are restored.
Firearm rights can be restored for many law-abiding citizens with past felony convictions. The felony conviction cannot have been a “person felony” committed with a firearm or deadly weapon.
EFFECT OF FIREARMS RIGHTS RESTORATION:
Gun rights are restored in Oregon only. Check with a lawyer in another state to determine the effect of an Oregon firearms restoration in that state. This procedure is available when expungement might not be an option. Firearm and hunting rights are restored.
Many felony charges can be reduced to misdemeanors, even years after the fact. The most common felonies eligible for this procedure are Class C felonies and Class B felony marijuana possession and delivery.
EFFECT OF REDUCTION TO MISDEMEANOR:
This procedure is available when expungement might not be. It eliminates felon status, which leads to new job and housing opportunities. Civil and hunting rights can be restored.
