Firearms restoration and Expungement

After certain convictions, Virginia residents can permanently lose their right to possess a firearm. If you have lost your right to carry a firearm, you may have the opportunity to take steps to restore your civil rights, including the right to possess a firearm.  Our attorneys can work with you to restore your gun rights and, in some cases, to expunge the documents relating to your arrest.   A prior arrest sometimes causes problems down the road when pursuing employment and other opportunities.  Under Virginia law, expungement may be available to erase the fact of an arrest from all official court and police records. Contact Cook Attorneys to see if expungement may be available for you.   To contact our law firm, please send us an email or call 540-564-9699. We offer free initial consultations to all criminal defense clients. Se habla español.
