Expungements: Your Knowledgeable Lawyer in Northeastern Pennsylvania

The effects of a criminal conviction last long after prison sentences, fines and probation. A criminal record will follow you for the rest of your life and have serious repercussions for employment, your family and your community standing. Background checks are becoming more prominent in the hiring process. Job applications devote a section to disclosing past criminal convictions.
