Why This Website Was Created
This site is designed and maintained by a criminal defense attorney. After many years in the courtroom it became obvious that too many people were being mis-labeled as criminals and were finding it hard to find even a simple job. The public often mischaractizes people that have a record without understanding the facts. We set up this site to help people overcome these issues.
Fortunately, many states allow you to remove these labels from public records. This is typically called an expungement (although there are other names that ae sometimes used). In order to qualify you have to understand the expungement laws in each state and the many alternatives that exist. Because each state's laws are unique it is best to speak to a knowledgable local expungement attorney where you were arrested rather than a national
one-stop-shop office that will just hand your case off to some lawyer you have never even talked to.
An expungement can turn your life around. It is an important issue that needs to be addressed correctly the first time. If done correctly the fee is worth every penny. If you have an unknown attorney do it incorrectly your relief is an appeal and that gets very expensive. This is why a LOCAL ATTORNEY that you have talked to is the better choice.
