Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyer Helps Arizonans as New Expungement Laws Go Into Effect

The new laws allow Arizonans to petition the court to seal criminal records


The Law Office of Zayed Al-Sayyed, PLLC announced that they are working with clients to navigate the new Arizona expungement laws that went into effect on January 1. These new laws allow those previously convicted of some crimes to petition the courts to seal their criminal records.

“We are excited to be able to help people truly get their freedoms back,” founder and lawyer Zayed Al-Sayyed said. “Expungement removes our clients’ past mistakes that they’ve already paid an enormous price for, and allows them to continue living their lives without their past haunting them. This is a truly great gift that we look forward to bringing to the people of Arizona.”

The Law Office of Zayed Al-Sayyed, PLLC has begun working with their criminal defense clients on sealing their criminal records since the law went into effect on January 1. Those seeking expungement can go to the courthouse, or courthouses in the event of multiple cases, where their criminal case was filed to receive a copy of their court record. These documents help determine if the convictions are eligible for expungement.

Through expungement, people with prior convictions can have parts of or their entire criminal record protected from public view. This can result in better job opportunities, better mortgage rates and insurance options, new options for starting a family such as adoption, opportunities for public assistance through SNAP and other government programs and general privacy. Each of these benefits can greatly increase the quality of life for those filing for expungement and their families through financial and emotional ways.

With over a decade of work in the area, The Law Office of Zayed Al-Sayyed, PLLC has established their foundation on providing Aggressive Compassionate Representation. This foundation feeds into desire to help those needing assistance navigating these new laws.

“Petitioning the courts to seal any criminal record, even with this new law, is still very nuanced,” said Al-Sayyed. “Having legal representation will help to ensure that the documents and records that you have a right to be sealed get and stay sealed so you can move on with your life. That is our commitment.”
