Criminal Defense

DuPage County criminal defense lawyersPeople are often surprised to learn that simply being arrested adds a charge to their criminal record. Even worse, that record can be seen by the public, including potential employers. What can you do to remove this charge from your record, and how much does it cost? Well, in some cases, there may not be a fee for the sealing or expungement of a record. The following can help you determine if you qualify.

Record Expungement versus Record Sealing

Before determining if you might qualify for record sealing or expungement, it is important first to understand the difference between the two actions. Expungement removes a charge, arrest, or probation from your record; it cannot remove a conviction unless the court has reversed it, or there are other extenuating circumstances.
