Georgia Record Restriction as of 2021
This law is new as of 2021 and I am overjoyed to tell you about it. We have a 90 percent success rate in having troublesome misdemeanors removed from people’s record. My latest case was a disabled, rideshare driver who had a misdemeanor case over ten years ago. He had been moving along just fine until his company did another records check and fired him. He had been without work for three months when he sought help from my office. Many times the State will just agree to these petitions, but not this time. This case required a Motion’s hearing and after the Judge heard from witnesses the judge agreed to our Petition for Restriction. It gave me such pleasure to send the order over to my client. He is now back at work and the fear of losing everything is in his rear view mirror.
The actual law is below but please call us to see if you qualify.
