10. Do I have to have an attorney to get my criminal history record expunged or sealed?


No. There is no requirement to hire an attorney in order to expunge or seal a criminal record. However, just like a person would go to a doctor when they are sick, so that they can get professional medical advice on what they need to do to be healthy again, an attorney is likewise recommended because of the complex legal issues and roadblocks which are usually encountered during this process.
