  • Need to erase felony record

    had dui with speeding over 130mph. I have heard that i can erase this record since its my first. please let me know what I need to do.

    Brian’s Answer

    There is no such thing as erasing a record. If you plead to DUI you may be able to reduce it to a misdemeanor and expunge the case which allows you to not report the conviction in most situations. If this is something you want to do many of us offer free consults.
