Media Expungement Lawyer
Do You Qualify to Clear Your Criminal Record?
In Pennsylvania, an arrest will stay on your criminal record indefinitely. A criminal record could hinder your ability to get a job and negatively impact other parts of your life. Expungement will remove certain criminal arrests or offenses from your record. If you qualify for expungement, our office will guide you through the process.

Clear Your Criminal Record
At the Law Office of Scott L. Kramer, P.C., we help people across Delaware County and all of Southeast Pennsylvania erase their criminal history through the expungement process. Our Media expungement attorney Scott L. Kramer has a sound understanding of how expungements work, having completed approximately 300 expungements in his career.
The laws surrounding expungements in Pennsylvania are very clear. If you successfully complete Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD), your case will be dismissed and your record expunged. There are certain exceptions that apply to underage sex crimes. Further, if your charges were dismissed, or you were acquitted, you likely have a solid claim for expungement. People 70 years or older are eligible for expungement if they have been free from arrest and prosecution for 10 or more years.
Expunging Juvenile Records
The law takes a more generous view toward young people who commit indiscretions. As a result, juvenile records can be expunged in more situations such as:
- Your complaint or petition resulting from a complaint was dismissed
- It has been six months since your final discharge from supervision under a consent decree and no proceeding is pending
- It has been 5 years or longer since final discharge from commitment, placement, probation or any other disposition and referral and since discharge, and you have not been convicted of a felony, misdemeanor or adjudicate delinquent and no proceeding is pending
- You are 18 or older and court determines expungement is in the interests of justice
Our Delaware County criminal defense attorney will look closely at the facts of your situation and let you know whether you are a good candidate for expungement. If you are, we will process the necessary documents with the court.
