Recent Victories - Part 2

CHARGE: Possession of a Controlled Substance
OUTCOME: Expunged

Our client's case of felony drug possession was expunged. She was living in a State that prohibited her from certain state benefits because of her drug case. She was in a dire situation. We were able to expunge and destroy her record. It was a significant relief for her and her family as they no longer worry about being denied benefits, housing, or employment.

CHARGE: Resisting Arrest
OUTCOME: Expunged

Our client was arrested for resisting arrest after being falsely accused of retail theft. We filed a Petition to Expunge. The State's Attorney objected because the crime involved a police officer. We were able to convince the Court, and the arrest record was expunged. Our client graduated from college and moved on with her life. With her record expunged, it will never come again.

CHARGE: Criminal Damage to Property
OUTCOME: Expunged

Our client was arrested for causing damage to another vehicle after a road rage altercation. He wasn't a US citizen, and a final adversarial outcome of his criminal case could jeopardize his immigration status. With his record expunged, he and his family no longer have to worry about being deported. With arrest records and all the documents connected to his case destroyed, he can continue to live in the U.S. with his family.

CHARGE: Retail Theft / Municipal
OUTCOME: Expunged

Our client was arrested for Retail Theft pursuant. Her case was prosecuted in the Village Court instead of Circuit Court. Many municipalities charge people under their ordinance and prosecute them in their own "Courts" because it generates income for the given village. Our client was a contract employee of the US Government, and such a case would have detrimental consequences. We were able to expunge her record. With her record destroyed, she no longer has to worry about her career.

CHARGE: UUW
OUTCOME: Expunged

Our client, a business owner, was arrested and accused of unlawfully possessing a handgun. After years of being told that his gun case can't be expunged, he had all but given up. After we reviewed his case, we determined that his arrest record was eligible for expungement. Over the State's objection, we were able to persuade the Court, and his record was expunged, Our client is a licensed profession, and his records were limiting his ability to progress. He no longer has to fear losing his job because of an honest mistake that he made in the past.
