Queens Expungement Attorney
Can I clear my criminal record?
One consequence of a criminal conviction that most people take for granted is the burden of a criminal record. While monetary fines may threaten your immediate financial stability and jail time is a decidedly negative experience, in most situations both these penalties have a set timeframe. Once a fine is paid off, one no longer has that burden on his or her finances. Likewise, once a prison sentence ends, an individual can more or less go home. A criminal record on the other hand, stays with an individual for years and years. If you would like to have an offense cleared from your criminal record, you should not hesitate to speak with an attorney about the possibility of expungement.
The Benefits of Expungement
With a criminal record, every time a potential employer, landlord, or bank loan official performs a background check, he or she will see your criminal offense. While some offenses can be easily explained away, people, especially individuals running a business, will be more inclined to trust someone without a criminal record over someone who has a criminal record. Through expungement, an individual can seek to have his or her record wiped clean. Once an offense has been expunged from your record, it will no longer show up on a background check.
