Reducing The Burden Of A Criminal Conviction Through A CROP (Certificate Of Restoration Of Opportunity)
A criminal conviction can make your life challenging in so many ways. If you don’t qualify for record sealing, expungement (vacating the record) or other forms of relief, you may still be able to pursue a Certification of Restoration of Opportunity (CROP). This option is designed to help people who have no other options left.
Through the CROP process, you can petition the court to be declared rehabilitated, which will remove many of the negative consequences of your past. A judge will review your case and decide whether to grant a CROP. This is a recent development in the law, and it is an extremely important change that will benefit many people throughout the state.
Don’t Give Up Hope
If you have previously tried to have a crime removed from your record and learned that there was nothing a lawyer could do for you, don’t give up. Our attorney can evaluate whether you qualify for a CROP and help you build a strong case for getting relief from your past.
Based in Normandy Park, we focus exclusively on this area of law. Our redemption lawyer, Kurt Bennett, has 20-plus years of experience helping people obtain freedom from the criminal records that have haunted them for far too long.
