The Expungement of a Criminal Record
Clearing a criminal record, or seeking an expungement, is removal of all records on file within any court, detention or correctional facility concerning a person's past criminal history including detentions or trial regarding an offense within the US criminal or juvenile justice system. Having a criminal record on the books, even one decades ago in another lifetime when you were another person, can impede professional career development and also diminish chances for loans and other official business. Clearing a criminal record can be looked upon as getting a second chance for that one bad day, with punishment long paid, shouldn’t have to mark you for the rest of your life.

But when it comes to working efficiently through the justice system, having an experienced lawyer working for you can get you to an expungement order sooner than later.
