A Clean Record Can Change Your Life
A criminal record is not only a reminder of past mistakes, it may be a major obstacle to your future. When prospective employers or those doing a background check uncover a criminal record, explanations must be provided and opportunities may be lost.
At Jacobs & Dow in New Haven, Connecticut, our criminal defense lawyers work with clients to expunge their criminal records.
A Clean Record Means an End to Explanations
When a criminal record has been expunged, you can safely answer "no" on an application or form that asks if you have been convicted of a crime. Law enforcement will still have that information, but it will no longer be available to prospective employers, loan officers, a college registrar or others checking your background.
The court must be convinced that you have earned a clean record. Our lawyers can help collect, organize and present evidence to the court and argue for expungement of your criminal record.
