Post-Conviction Restoration Lawyer in Chesapeake

Post-Conviction Relief in Virginia

If you’ve been convicted of a crime, it is not the end of the story. There are a variety of ways in which you can obtain relief from some of the consequences of criminal convictions, such as clearing your record or having certain rights restored. Turn to the experienced legal team at J. Bouchard Law to learn more about how we can help you with post-conviction relief in Chesapeake.

We offer assistance with the following types of post-conviction relief:


An expungement can clear certain items from your public record, giving you greater opportunities for employment, housing, firearm rights, and more. In Virginia, you may apply for an expungement of criminal charges that resulted in acquittal or dismissal, or if someone else committed the crime using your name. You may also petition for a pardon of a conviction, which will permanently remove the crime from your record.

Gun Rights Restoration

If you have lost your right to bear arms due to a felony or misdemeanor conviction, we can assist you with petitioning for a restoration of those rights. In some cases, you may need to submit a petition for a “restoration of civil rights” to The Secretary of the Commonwealth before regaining firearm rights. We can help you determine if you are eligible and make the requests for you.

Habitual Offender Restoration

If you’ve been categorized as a “habitual offender” due to repeated traffic violations, we can help you regain your license and have the categorization removed from your record. This can be complicated process, which is why we recommend that you secure aggressive representation from a criminal defense lawyer at our firm.
