Expungement / Restoration of Civil Rights

Watch this short video where David explains Expungement / Restoration of Civil Rights in Arizona:

Need an Arizona Expungement Attorney? Contact the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor if you need assistance with the Restoration of your Civil Rights.

Whether in the Phoenix area, or anywhere in Arizona, there is no such thing as a “Expungement”. However, Arizona does provide for what is known as a “Judgment of Guilt Set Aside” and a “Restoration of Civil Rights”. In essence, if the Judge grants the Motion to Set Aside Judgment of Guilt, then a Defendant can tell people that he has not previously been convicted of a crime. However, many job applications will ask “Have you ever been convicted, arrested, or charged?” If this occurs, then a Defendant must answer “yes” on any job application. However, there is usually a space which allows an explanation of the situation. Many times people will state that they were charged with a crime, however, the “judgment of guilt was set aside”, and therefore they currently have no convictions on their criminal record. This response normally serves to adequately answer any job application questions, and removes the conviction as a harmful consideration for a Defendant’s potential employer.

Restoration of Civil Rights Case Victories

If the case is a felony matter, then we will also file what is known as a “Restoration of Civil Rights” in an attempt to allow a Defendant to vote in the future. On some of these motions, we can also ask for the restoration of the right to bear arms (i.e., own guns). However, if the conviction involves certain types of violent crimes (such as Aggravated Assault or Sexual Misconduct) then the law does not allow a person to file for a Judgment of Guilt to be set aside. For a more definitive finding of whether your case allows you to set aside the judgment of guilt, contact our office immediately.
