Attorney Kara Carreras Will Fight for Your Clean Record and Fresh Start

Criminal Record Expunction Attorney in Fort Worth Texas

Expunction—also called expungement—refers to the process of clearing your criminal record of an arrest, charge or conviction. Clearing your record can make a big difference in your life.

Background checks can affect your ability to find a job or a place to live. An old mistake can haunt you for years. At The Carreras Law Group, P.C., a Fort Worth criminal defense attorney can help you with expunction and non-disclosure order issues.

Expunction or Non-Disclosure

When the judge signs your order for expunction, you will have the right to have your criminal record cleared. A background search will turn up no record of the incident, not even a note that the record has been cleared. You won’t have to tell anyone about your conviction when applying for a job, license or loan. It will be like it never happened.

In some cases where expunction is not available, Carreras Law Group, P.C. may be able to pursue an order for nondisclosure for you. While an expunction will clear your record, an order for nondisclosure will limit who can access your records. After an order for nondisclosure, private companies will not be able to see your record, but certain public entities will still have access.

Can My Record Be Cleared?

Texas law limits the things that you can seek to remove from your permanent record:

The good news is that if you are eligible, the process is relatively painless for you. Once you choose Carreras Law Group to help you with your expunction, the firm does the rest. Attorney Kara Carreras and her support staff take care of all the paperwork attend the hearing, keep you informed, and let you know about any developments. In 45 to 60 days, generally, the firm will have the court’s answer for you.

The Opinions That Matter Most

Very pleased with Mrs. Kara she went above and beyond to help my brother-in-law. Would highly recommend her she is on top of what is needing to be done. Thank you again.

Xylia Perez

Today’s legal system, like our government, is corrupted by misguided ideologies, spineless politicians, & corporate finances which makes it hard for the little guy to get a fair shake, but Kara and her team worked tirelessly to achieve a full dismissal of the charges filed against me by a corporate giant. The personal approach, genuine concern, and unwavering dedication to ensuring that everyone is treated equally under the law is what sold me. The wheels of Justice move slow but with patience, perseverance, and Carreras Law Group you too can experience the joy of victory & vindication in our skewed legal system. I recommended Carreras Law Group 100%!!!


I have known Kara since her days in Law School and have followed her career since then. She is extremely professional and a tough litigator. She has assisted my family with various legal situations and has provided us with excellent legal counsel. If I needed someone that specialized in the field of law outside her specialty, she would steer me with recommendations of other attorneys that specialized in those fields. Every one of the attorneys she has recommended has been of the highest caliber. I am so pleased to see her starting her own law group and am certain that she and the firm will have many years of exemplary service to the DFW area.

Very professional, very honest, I really recommend them. (Original) Muy profesional muy honesta en verdad se las recomiendo 👍🏻

Ana Ramirez

Most reviews are a collection of flowery endorsements that read well but carry little weight. I don’t do flowery. I’m a 68 year old man who does not like lawyers, most doctors and 99% of all politicians. I get along better with a good dog than most people, I have never been on Facebook and have never “tweeted”. I own a flip phone that I answer only when it suits me. I have served our country as a proud member of the military police during Vietnam and I normally do not do testimonials but in this case I will make an exception. If asked for my opinion you will get the brutal truth, whether you want it or not. Ms. Carreras has proven to be an exception to the rule. She handled a relatively minor legal matter for me and drove it to successful completion in record time. She is a person of exceptional character and a consummate professional, which is a rare thing indeed in the litigation community. If you are in need of the best and someone who cares about your legal well being, you cannot employ a more competent litigator that shows wisdom well beyond her years.

George Carte

I cannot thank Ms. Carreras enough! The time, effort and personal commitment she took to resolve a family legal situation went far beyond our expectations. She not only got the charges reduced but in the end was able to have the entire case dismissed. We forever owe you a debt of gratitude !

Doreen Labit

Both my fiance and I were charged with the same bogus charges and Ms. Carreras swiftly dealt with my fiance’s case in two appearances! My lawyer on the other hand didn’t do his job and after 9 months of dragging his feet the DA talked with Ms. Carreras the week before trial was to begin and she convinced them to dismiss my case as well! If I EVER need a lawyer again I will be calling Ms. Carreras!!!!

Raymond Prater

Kara Carreras is such a great attorney. She really dug deep into my case to find all the necessary details. Kara got me off of a charge that didn’t seem possible. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. And will never use anyone else!

Sherman Allen

By far Kara Carreras is the best attorney myself or my family has dealt with. She treated us like family. She consistently kept me updated as to what was going on without me even having to call her. She went that extra mile for us and I can never thank her enough for her kindness, compassion, and thoroughness of the job she did for us. If I could give her 10 stars I would!!
