Our firm believes everybody deserves second chances and no one should have to suffer under the perpetual burden of guilt, embarrassment, and prejudice. For the sake of your peace of mind and your future, after your case has been tried, there are further steps for you to consider. In certain circumstances, you may be eligible to have your record sealed and even expunged depending on the nature of your criminal charges as well as your criminal history.
A sealed record occurs upon motion by the petitioner to have a charge/offense physically sealed so that a private party/employer is prevented from learning of its content. However, in certain circumstances your record could be viewed by certain state and law enforcement agencies.
An expunged record results in the physical destruction of your file and occurs upon motion by the petitioner.
Our firm would love to be able to help you pursue expungement. Having your record sealed is a huge relief that is like starting your life over with a clean slate. This step not only provides you with peace of mind but provides you with better chances for employment and education. No one enjoys having perpetual guilt hanging over their head. We all need second chances, and we can help you obtain yours! Get your free consultation today.
