Expungments and Pardons

Do you feel hindered by your criminal history? Like you are being passed over for job opportunities and promotions because of charges that have been filed against you in the past? Even if your case is dropped, or you are proven innocent, that charge is still listed in your criminal history. Thankfully, there are processes that you can go through to "clean up" your history.



If you have a low level offense that ended with a nolle prosequi (a case that was dropped) or a ruling of not guilty, you may be elidgible for an expungment.  This process removes the applicable charges from your public criminal history, meaning that potential employers will not see them. In today's competitive job market, this limited investment is a great way to boost your resume and help you get the job that you want and deserve.



Maybe you did do it. Guilty, but that was a long time ago. You did your time, and are no longer that person. There is still hope. You can apply for a Pardon. Through this process, we attempt to change the listing on your criminal history from "Guilty" to "Pardoned". With less serious offenses, once an offense is pardoned, you can then continue with getting the charge expunged from your record.

Don't let your past ruin your future. Let us help you move forward with your life.
