Recent Victories - Part 3
Our client was employed by a national organization and had a highly public position. He was arrested for Domestic Battery after an altercation with his wife. After the matter was dismissed, we filed a Petition to Expunge the Record. The State's Attorney objected to our Petition. After a lengthy hearing, we were able to convince the Court that our client was worthy of having his record expunged and that the public had no interest in keeping the record from being destroyed. Our client was relieved that he was able to keep his high profile position and avoided the embarrassment of having a Domestic Battery arrest on his record.
Our client was arrested after a high-speed chase resulting in a car accident. She had other cases in the past that we had expunged or sealed. However, sealing such a serious case with a background was a challenge. We convinced the Court that our client had changed her life and is a good citizen. We explained to the Court how difficult it was for her to get a job or housing. The Court agreed with us and sealed her record. She is now employed by a major transportation company with a highly responsible position.
Our client was arrested for Retail Theft. She was employed with a major retailer and was accused of theft using gift cards. We were able to expunge her record, along with a previous retail theft case she had in the past. With two retail theft cases, her prospects of getting employed were dim. With both of her records destroyed, she can move on with her life with the burden of her past mistakes.
Our client was in the US on a work visa and was arrested for Domestic Battery after having an altercation with his wife. He was employed by a major corporation in the technology field. With such a serious charge, his and his family's immigration status was jeopardized. After his case was dismissed, we were able to Expunge his record. With his record expunged, he was able to keep his employment and no longer worry about getting deported.
Our client wanted to enter a licensed profession in Illinois and needed to clear his arrest record. With a Criminal Trespass charge, he was worried that he would be denied from entering his field and not fulfilling his dream. His mistake was no longer a burden of moving forward with his life. Since an expunged record gets destroyed, it will never come again in the future. -
