Criminal Convictions: Understanding the Aftermath
All criminal convictions on your record can impact your ability to secure employment and in some cases to secure housing. We may be able to assist you with having your record expunged if you are eligible. Those who are not eligible to have their criminal record expunged may be eligible to have their record sealed. Expunged records are “wiped clean” meaning no one has access to the record. Sealed records are available only to law enforcement officers.
Whether you’re currently facing criminal charges or you need help having your record expunged or sealed, contact The Law Office of Oscar H. Brown Jr. at 708-426-2111. We’ll work hard to clear your name ensuring your future isn’t tarnished by a foolish mistake.
