Vacating and Sealing

It is sometimes possible to have a criminal conviction removed from your record after a period of good behavior. Some adult felonies can be vacated and almost all juvenile offenses may be sealed after a period of time. Please contact the Law Office of Thomas E. Weaver to determine whether your offenses are eligible for vacation or sealing.

Sex Offender Registration

One of the most difficult and long lasting stigmas in our society is the Scarlet Letter that comes from being a registered sex offender. But even if you were told you would have to register for the rest of your life, it may be possible to be removed from the sex offender registry. The statutes are complex, however, and a lawyer is definitely recommended for this task. Even if you have been told you are no longer required to register, it is often helpful to get a court order in order to assist with interstate and international travel. If you were convicted of a Washington state offense, or if you are currently residing in Washington, it may be possible to get off the registry. Contact the Law Office of Thomas E. Weaver for a free preliminary screening for eligibility.

Firearm Rights

All persons convicted of a felony and living in Washington state are prohibited from possessing a firearm unless their Second Amendment rights have been reinstated by a judge. If it has been more than five years since your conviction, contact the Law Office of Thomas E. Weaver for assistance in restoring your firearm rights. Mr. Weaver has been in the forefront of helping people retain their firearm rights. In one case, the prosecutors even argued that the Second Amendment does not apply to Washington citizens, a position that Supreme Court had no difficulty rejecting. State v. Sieyes, 168 Wn.2d 276, 225 P.3d 995 (2010). The statute permitting the reinstatement of firearm rights is poorly written, however, and it is recommended that you utilize the services of an experienced lawyer to navigate this statutory scheme. In one case, Mr. Weaver was able to convince the Court of Appeals that his interpretation of the statute was correct, allowing his client to reinstate his firearm rights. Payseno v. Kitsap County, 186 Wn.App. 465, 346 P.3d 784 (2015).

No Contact Orders

Sometimes no contact orders are issued at the time of sentencing, either with or without the wishes of the parties. Frequently, these situations involve family members who wish to reconcile. It is sometimes possible to rescind no contact orders after sentencing. Contact the Law Office of Thomas E. Weaver for assistance in rescinding an unwanted no contact order.

After a conviction, we are prepared to help you with whatever problems may arise. Tom Weaver, Criminal Defense Attorney, is an experienced Post Conviction Attorney.
