There are specific guidelines that must be met before applying for civil rights reinstatement, which an attorney can inform you of.

Defense of Felony Crime Charges: When accused and charged with a felony crime, one of the most important things you can do is seek the legal advice and representation of professional legal counsel. When you hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you, your attorney's duty is to aggressively and zealously protect your legal rights using every legal resource available under the law. The defense also has a legal right to present a viable defense and theory of the crime. Evidence must be examined and put under a microscope, witness must be interviewed, the accused alibi must be presented, and the prosecution must be held to their lawful standard of proof while presenting their case against you, which is "Beyond and to the exclusion of any reasonable doubt." As with any criminal case, the actions of law enforcement must also be examined to determine if any civil rights violations occurred, or if the investigation was compromised in any way.
