Case Seals

Colorado has been increasingly widening the scope of cases that allow for someone's record to be sealed. It is important to consult with an attorney so you can determine whether that old arrest, accusation, or even conviction may be eligible to be sealed under today's laws.

What is the process for sealing an old case?

  • It depends on the nature of the charge and the outcome. Some case can be sealed by simply filing paperwork. Others may require a full hearing in front of a judge. Please asks us for a consult and we can discuss the particulars of your situation.

Are there criminal conviction that cannot be sealed?

  • Unfortunately yes. Generally speaking sex offenses, domestic violence, and traffic offenses (including DUIs) are not sealable. However, it is important to know your rights in your particular situation. So please feel free to reach out to us for a free consult.

Does sealing a case where there was conviction restore my Second Amendment Rights?

  • No, sealing a felony conviction does not restore firearm rights. You would still have to seek a pardon in order to be able to buy or possess a firearm in Colorado.
