Many people have misconceptions regarding the restoration of their firearm rights. One of the most common misconceptions is that you must have your conviction vacated in order to have your firearm rights restored. This is simply not true. You can choose to have your firearm rights restored without having your conviction vacated.

However, the Attorneys at RestoreMyRecord, a division of the Law Office of Erin Bradley McAleer, have handled hundreds of firearm right restorations and vacations. We also offer discounts if you choose to hire us to handle both the vacation of your conviction and restoration of your firearm rights.

Class A felonies are classified as having a maximum punishment of up to life in prison and up to $50,000 in fines, or both.
