I highly recommend RecordGone (Higbee & Associates). The staff did a fantastic job through diligence and hard work and had my case completed in just a few months and with less cost to me than any other Attorney I received a quote from for the same service. Thank you, I now have a better outlook towards my future.

Most financial institutions will not hire an applicant who has a criminal conviction that indicates a "breach of trust" or "dishonesty" such as petty theft, grand theft, fraud, embezzlement, burglary, or money laundering.
