Having a criminal record is like being sentenced for life. Even if you were never convicted of the offense, the consequences will continue to haunt you. Most employees and landlords perform criminal background checks on applicants. If you have a criminal record, you may be unable to pass criminal background checks, which may prevent you from finding reliable employment or quality housing.
Fortunately, you may be eligible to seal your offense and the related case. The record sealing process, however, is time sensitive and complex, so it is vital that you hire an attorney that specializes in record sealing, and who has experience with the courts in Franklin County. Investing in an attorney is an investment in yourself, helping to make sure that everything is done right the first time, saving you time and money, and maybe even saving your case from resulting in a failed petition.
When you are looking to have your criminal record removed it is important to have a licensed expungement attorney working on your behalf. You can count on RecordGone.com's experienced attorneys and trained staff to guide you through the entire process without ever having to come in for an expensive office visit or appear in court.
Expungement proceedings are quite complex and in many cases the outcome is up to the judge. Having RecordGone.com represent you will ensure that you do not end up waiting for months, or even years, because of simple mistakes that can start the process over.
Because most attorneys do not solely practice in this area of law, and therefore charge higher prices. Because RecordGone.com is completely dedicated to criminal record removal we have streamlined the process and passed the savings on to our clients.
