Restoration of Rights
Arizona does not allow for the expungement of criminal convictions. However, a conviction does not mean that your rights cannot be reinstated. For many offenses, you are entitled to have your civil rights reinstated. You may also be able to restore your right to possess a weapon.
Additionally, an application to set aside the judgment may be filed in a majority of cases. If the application is granted, the judge shall set aside the conviction, dismiss the accusations, and order that you be released from nearly all penalties resulting from the conviction. Although a set aside is not the equivalent of an expungement, it can be extremely beneficial in obtaining future employment.
Elizabeth Mullins has filed dozens of successful applications to set aside the judgment. She has also successfully restored gun rights for several clients, even in cases involving victims and multiple counts.
