Setting Aside a Criminal Conviction in Arizona (Expungement)
These days background checks are being performed and used by potential employers, banks, loan agencies, vocational and educational schools, landlords, sports organizations, travel agencies, state and local governments, and the list goes on. Having a criminal conviction associated with your name can be a great hinderance in life.
In Arizona, most criminal convictions may be set aside. Some people are more familiar with the term expungement. The term expungement is used in other states, and while similar to set asides in Arizona, they are not exactly the same. The criteria for expungement and setting aside a criminal conviction varies from state to state. That is why it is important to hire an experienced Arizona criminal defense lawyer who is familiar with the law and the criteria to help you get an Arizona conviction set aside. Having your conviction set aside can depend on good persuasive writing by someone who is familiar with requirements and criteria and can communicate and argue the strengths of your individual case and situation. Familiarity with the court and individual judge who will be deciding whether or not to set aside your conviction is also something an experienced lawyer should have in order to argue your case for the best results.
Potential Oral Argument
Some judges may also set a court date for oral arguments before considering the petition to set aside. Don’t try to argue law you are unfamiliar with and fail to bring up essential facts that could make all the difference in your case. Hire a lawyer who knows the law, criteria, the judge, and can argue your case to its fullest. You need an experienced lawyer by your side.

Restoration of Rights
Criminal convictions, both misdemeanor and felony can result in the loss of certain rights. Most people are aware of the consequences of losing rights like the right to vote, or to own a firearm, but less familiar with the loss of rights such as running for a public office or obtaining a scholarship or grant for education. A criminal conviction can also result in being ineligible for housing, loans, and travel to some countries. A criminal conviction may also make you ineligible to be insured under certain commercial insurance policies. In other words, if your job involves driving a company vehicle, the company may not be able to hire you because they can’t insure you under their policy. But just because you have lost your rights due to a criminal conviction does not mean that you cannot restore those rights with the help of an experienced lawyer.
