ERASE YOUR PAST MISTAKES
In some cases, certain arrests and/or convictions may be expunged or removed from your record. An “expungement” is an Order from the Court, signed by a Judge, which requires law enforcement and Court agencies to destroy all records of certain arrests and/or convictions.
If your charges have been dismissed or you were found not guilty at trial, and your record has not been properly expunged, these charges will still show up on a criminal background check.
We routinely speak with people in the community who have suffered the loss of opportunities as a result of a past mistake. It is common practice for employers to run criminal background checks on potential employees. Property managers and landlords often rely on criminal record checks when approving tenants applications for homes and apartments.
A past mistake can follow you indefinitely, making it impossible to put it behind you and move forward and negatively impacting your life for years to come. If you are unsure about what may be on your record, please call the Law Offices of Peter David Brown. We have helped many people “clean up” their records.
