In Some Cases a Criminal Record Doesn’t Have to Follow You for Life
A criminal record has the potential to haunt you for the rest of your life—long after you’ve served your time or satisfied your punishment for your mistakes. You can even suffer ramifications from records of arrests and charges that were later dropped.
The fact of the matter is, if a potential employer is choosing between you and another similarly qualified candidate, and they see a black mark on your record, who do you think the employer is going to choose? Fortunately, there is the potential for relief in the form of Expungement.
A legal expungement effectively erases specific aspects of a criminal record. However, Alabama eligibility requirements are strict, and you will need a skilled attorney with intimate knowledge of Alabama expunction law to help you effectively remove damaging information from your records.
