Expunge US Veterans is a nonprofit organization based in Tampa, Florida, that helps men and women who served seal /expunge their minor criminal histories at no cost. We strive to restore honor and dignity to our nation's veterans by making sealing / expungement accessible to veterans who cannot otherwise afford it.
Our organization began when the founder, Larry Weglarz an Army and Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran, heard veterans express concern and helplessness regarding minor criminal histories at support group meetings. These veterans expressed anguish regarding employment opportunities, job promotions, educational opportunities, and housing. Even though many veterans graduated from Veteran’s Treatment Court, their criminal arrests were still public record. Once the record was sealed or expunged, in accordance with State Law, the record was removed from government sites and data bases.
While Attorneys charge up to $2,000 to perform this service, our business model allows veterans to have this service offered at no cost to them. On December 1, 2016, Expunge US Veterans formally joined WestCare Inc., a national non-profit organization. With WestCare’s resources and services already providing veterans, it was a perfect fit. While some non-prfit organizations provide Assistance with the sealing and expunging of criminal records, we found no other organization who offers this service at the level we do. We partner with great attorneys who strive to better life for our Nation’s Veterans.
