In our previous blog post, we discussed the fact that expungements are very complex matters that must be handled very carefully. Any missteps can mean that you don’t get the outcome you desire. The same is true of criminal appeals.
We know that you might not be sure where to turn. The fact is that handling appeals and expungements isn’t something that can be done unless you have a full understanding of how to proceed. We can help you learn what you need to know so that you can decide if these options are some that you wish to pursue.
When it comes to these matters, the outcome is too important to leave to chance. Think about how much having a criminal record expunged could change your life. The record of the conviction wouldn’t show up on the database that employers check, so you might find it easier to get a job and earn the money need to support yourself.
A successful criminal appeal could mean that you aren’t incarcerated any longer, and you will be able to begin working to enjoy your life. It could also mean that you enjoy some of the same benefits as an expungement, such as the ability to find getting employment a bit easier since the conviction wouldn’t be on your record.
We can help you learn more about the process of appealing or trying to get your record expunged. Knowing the criteria for each option and finding out if your case meets the criteria could help you to decide if you are going to proceed with one of these.
