A: Easy answer is to call the lawyer who represented you. If that isn't possible, the public defender's office in the county where the conviction occurred can help you. In many counties, you can just call the prosecutor's office. Most of them have an assigned person or team who is taking care of these. Not 100% of cases qualify, but pretty close.

If you want to hire someone to go through your history and make these contacts for you, you certainly can do that as well. Offices like mine can certainly get it done for you if you don't want to track them down yourself.

A: They are going to start automatically vacating VUCSA drug possession convictions in Washington State. It's a big project for the State and details of when are scarce.
