Expungements

The stigma of a felony or even misdemeanor conviction can prevent you from securing or keeping a job and cause severe harm to your reputation. The ease with which an employer can conduct a background check of your criminal history is such that no one is safe from such scrutiny any more. With search engine precision and companies offering online background checks at the click of a button, people with convictions are more vulnerable than ever to prying eyes. But there is hope.
