Expungement is not automatic under VA law and requires arguments before a court in most cases. For this reason, attorney representation is strongly encouraged. Please call me at 703.926.3900 to discuss your case further.

If you were actually convicted of the crime, you can forget about expungement;

it will not happen in the Commonwealth. (See Va. Code Sec. 19.2-392.2 et seq.)
