Sealing Criminal Records

Expungement is the legal procedure for sealing a record of an arrest

and/or criminal conviction in Oregon.


If your Motion For Expungement is granted, the Clerk of the court will

enter an expungement order and send certified true copies of the order

to the FBI, Oregon State Police, Portland Police Bureau and/or other

agencies as directed by the Court. These agencies must seal the records

of the arrest and/or conviction in the expunged case and remove them

from public access.
Then, in the eyes of the law, the arrest and/or conviction did not

occur and the records do not exist. This is beneficial for job and

school applications, obtaining a bond and other situations that question

an individual’s criminal record.


There are numerous criteria which must be satisfied in order to qualify

for expungement.

After I Met Him, My Outlook On Everything Changed Completely.
My experience with Jim O’Rourke was much more positive than I could have ever expected. I am a Pharmacist who got into serious trouble, with five criminal charges against me. My first attorney did absolutely nothing for me, and I’m pretty sure if I found Jim first I would not have lost my job. (Read More Testimonials...)

I Would Highly Recommend Mr. O'Rourke as a Lawyer for Any Criminal Case.

Mr. O'Rourke represented me in a DUII case. I am a health care professional and I was worried about my professional license. Mr. O'Rourke gave me advice on how to approach my licensing board that was a great help to resolve my board problems.

Mr. O'Rourke's Team Helped Me Regain Who I Have Always Been; A Man of Character.
I am a pharmacist who became addicted to opiates post-ACL and meniscus surgery. I tried to hide my addiction for months but it was not long before I lost my job. I was charged with serious crimes but ended up with no convictions due to Mr. O'Rourke's efforts. (Read More Testimonials...)
