Abilene area folks in need of expungement of legal records were assisted during the first Abilene Expunction Clinic co-sponsored by Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys.

Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys Dax Pueschel and Sarah Durham, paralegal Karisa Hagle along with the Big Country Reentry Coalition and these sponsors conducted the first Abilene Expunction Clinic on Friday, May 6, 2022.

It was a great success to help folks!

The expunctions under Texas law allow individuals to remove information about an arrest, charge, or conviction from their permanent records in certain circumstances to help them gain employment, education, and housing.

Those taking part in the May 6th event had to pre-register for the event. The Coalition hopes to make this an annual event.

The Texas Law Library has more information on expungement and nondisclosures.

In certain cases, Texas individuals are able to have their criminal record expunged  (cleared), or they may petition for their records (including juvenile records) to be sealed through a nondisclosure order.

The link includes references to the areas of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, the Texas Government Code and the Texas Family Code that govern expunctions, orders of nondisclosure and the sealing of juvenile records.
