In Georgia, the only way to get a prior conviction off your record is to have entered the plea originally under First Offender status. If you did not do that, it is permanently on your record.
The only other thing to do if it was not a First Offender plea is to request a pardon from the governor. Information on how that can be done is here

I see your rating of "poor service". I cannot help what the law is. Our service must be honest with the state of the law, which my answer is. If the previous rating was simply because of the state of the law, please reconsider one of the right three ratings. Otherwise, it's akin to shooting the messenger.
