Vacating a Conviction in King County District Courts: Seattle, Kent, Burien, Issaquah, Bellevue, and Redmond
I work with clients to smoothly vacate their records in the King County District Courts without hassle or stress.
King County District Court Court Spotlight. Vacating a conviction in those courts with an attorney is a process that is relatively smooth, although King County District is probably one of the slower courts in terms of movement. I would anticipate allotting it 3-6 months. This is the Redmond, Burien, Kent, Issaquah, Seattle, and Bellevue District Courts in King County. The prosecutors now are noting an objection on cases that were reduced from a DUI like a negligent driving or a reckless driving, however, the Judge will generally listen to argument, and I have not had much issue getting those cases through.
A hearing is set, your appearance is optional. I handle those generally for clients. The process takes 3-6 months overall, so not as quickly as most people would like but I like to be upfront with that information. Eventually, most matters do get smoothly vacated which allow you to state for any purpose including housing and employment that you have not been convicted of that crime.
So, if that is something you would like help with, we can start getting the ball rolling. If it’s something where your eligibility is coming up in a little while we can get it going early because it can take so much time to process. Feel free to give my office a call.
