Record Clearance Attorney

Post-Conviction Relief - "Cleaning" Criminal Records

If your criminal record stands between you and your goals, you may want to try and do something about it. Some people try this on their own. I think it's too important to try on your own because things can go wrong.

What will you do in court if a problem that comes up when handling your case yourself? 

This is why it is best to hire an attorney in these types of cases.

I handle post-conviction relief cases, felonies and misdemeanors. I also "clean" criminal records.
