Expungement Attorney


In some cases, certain arrests and/or convictions may be expunged or removed from your record. An “expungement” is an Order from the Court, signed by a Judge, which requires law enforcement and Court agencies to destroy all records of certain arrests and/or convictions.

If your charges have been dismissed or you were found not guilty at trial, and your record has not been properly expunged, these charges will still show up on a criminal background check.

We routinely speak with people in the community who have suffered the loss of opportunities as a result of a past mistake. It is common practice for employers to run criminal background checks on potential employees. Property managers and landlords often rely on criminal record checks when approving tenants applications for homes and apartments.

A past mistake can follow you indefinitely, making it impossible to put it behind you and move forward and negatively impacting your life for years to come. If you are unsure about what may be on your record, please call the Law Offices of Peter David Brown. We have helped many people “clean up” their records. Please contact us at 843-971-0099 for a consultation.

We have had extremely great service from Peter Brown's Law Office. Peter's entire staff gives you the personal service, that you do not get from any other firm. Peter personally has paid attention to every problem that we have hired his firm for. Peter Brown's Law Office has never overcharged us for any of the things that we have retained him to handle. We have had other Law firms look over our cases, but wanted an astronomical fee. This firm will fight for you, get things done for you in a timely manner and not over charge you for their services. There is no flashy commercials, telling you to dial 9999999, 7777777, or 8888888. This firm is straight forward, no silly gimmicks, jumping over cars, or dropping numbers from the sky!! I would not want to do business with silly gimmicky law firms. We would highly recommend that you trust the Law Office of Peter Brown, for all of your legal matters. You will be pleased with the fees, easy payment plan and the results of your case. This why we recommend Peter Brown's Law Firm to all of our family and friends.

Peter Brown handled two situations for my family honestly and fairly. I don't want to go into much detail regarding our interactions, but I will say one of the situations was life changing for my family. When you are faced with tough decisions, you need someone you can depend on. Peter Brown is that person. He helped us navigate the complex legal system and earned my complete trust. I hope I never need to call on his services again, but if I had to, I would not hesitate day or night.

My family and I have had the pleasure and fortune to be witness to the breadth of knowledge and legal expertise of Peter David Brown since our arrival to the greater Charleston, South Carolina area roughy a decade ago. Peter is an extremely active, community-minded attorney who happens to be one of the most brilliant legal minds of his generation. Time and again, his reputation as a mentor, advocate, and counselor would reveal themselves both in his work and philanthropy. With over 30 years of experience Peter David Brown has a remarkable ability to explain the legal process in a manner that can be understood by a layperson. His legal training and expertise are so readily evident in his interactions with other lawyers, paralegals, courtroom staff and clients. Peter and his legal team have proved invaluable to me whether it was as an advisor when I was starting my own business, handling the affairs of my will, or simply adjudicating a traffic infraction for one of my family members. As I would become more familiar with his legal prowess, it became readily apparent that this man was heavily sought after for both his keen ability in the courtroom, as well as his wisdom and insight as a trusted advisor and forward thinker. This should come as no surprise since he completed his undergraduate at the Citadel and earned his Law degree from Emory University. He treats his clients’ cases with the utmost respect and dignity, whether he is handling a worker’s compensation case, a D.W.I., or a complex homicide. For potential clients seeking legal representation, I highly recommend The Law Office of Peter David Brown. In my estimation, they are the only law firm to call when legal counsel is needed.
