A past criminal conviction can lock up your career

A criminal conviction is a common reason your application to your licensing board, department, or agency may be denied. In addition, a criminal conviction can be the sole basis to have an Accusation filed against you. It is imperative that you have an experienced attorney assist you in cleaning up your record before applying for the career of your choice, and when defending you in an Accusation.

Expunging a criminal conviction will be seen as rehabilitative

While expunging a criminal conviction will not “save the day,” it will be seen as rehabilitative. The attorneys at Unlock Legal have filed hundreds of petitions for dismissal, or “expungements,” on our clients’ behalf. We will review your RAP sheet; file a petition for dismissal on your behalf; and offer the judge evidence of your rehabilitation. When a petition for dismissal is granted, it means that your guilty plea is withdrawn and the case against you has been dismissed.

Once granted, you may honestly state that you have not been convicted of a crime. However, if you are applying for a professional license, you still must disclose the prior conviction even if it has been expunged.

Unlock your probation early.

A Motion for Early Termination of Probation can be filed with the court. The attorneys at Unlock Legal are familiar with the evidence of rehabilitation that must be shown in order for a judge to grant a Motion for Early Termination of Probation, and allow your probation to end early.

Certificate of Rehabilitation

A felony conviction with prison time will not necessarily lock you out of your future career. A Certificate of Rehabilitation can be filed with the court, and will assist you in moving forward with your licensing boards.

A Violation of Probation Charge Does Not Always Mean Jail

If you allegedly violate probation due to a new law violation, or a failure to comply with the terms of your probation it does not always mean that you are going to jail. The attorneys at Unlock Legal have litigated many alleged probation violations to a successful result and will represent you in the same professional manner.
