One of the most common questions people ask in the course of a criminal case “will this be on my record?” or ” how can I prevent my employer from seeing my criminal record?” We at K&M understand how a criminal charge on your record can have devastating consequences to your life and future, whether it affects your employment or your ability to rent an apartment. While nondisclosure will not remove the criminal charge from your record completely, it will seal or restrict access to your records, preventing those who review your record for purposes of seeking employment, renting an apartment, or for educational purposes from seeing the charges. Sealing a criminal record can help you move on with your life.
Sealing a Criminal Record in Texas
Nondisclosure is available to those who have successfully completed their probation or deferred adjudication. Once an order of non-disclosure has been entered, we will make sure that the records maintained by the Texas Criminal Information Center (“TCIC”) will properly reflect the extent of public access to your criminal records.

If you have been charged with a crime or have a criminal record getting in the way of your life progress, please contact us to discuss your eligibility for a non-disclosure or “seal” of your records. If you are eligible, upon entry of an Order of Non-Disclosure from the court, most of your records will be made unavailable to your current or future employer, your landlord, or your school.
