Belchertown Expungements Lawyer
Sealing Criminal Records - Expungements - Motions to Vacate
A criminal conviction can create serious problems for an individual, even long after all penalties have been served. A convicted felon will likely have problems obtaining employment following conviction and may face other consequences, such as motor vehicle registration problems, and immigration problems. In fact, a criminal conviction may result in automatic deportation or removal proceedings for immigrants.
At the Law Offices of John P. McKenna, P.C., we advocate for our clients and work to protect their rights now and in the future. We help them enhance their opportunities following a criminal conviction by sealing criminal records and utilizing other available remedies to protect their reputation. Contact our criminal defense lawyer Us for assistance sealing, expunging, or vacating a criminal record.
- Motion to vacate: Once an individual is convicted of a criminal charge, we carefully analyze his or her case and look for reasons why the judge should reconsider the case. We are experienced in requesting a motion to vacate the order. This may result in a new trial, a reduced sentence, or reduced probation period.
- Sealing criminal records: Once an individual has served any jail time or completed any penalties for a criminal conviction, it may be possible to seal his or her criminal record from anyone outside of the government or law enforcement. We help evaluate whether our client qualifies for sealing of his or her criminal record or arrest record and, help the client through the process so that he or she can move past the conviction.
- Expungement of criminal record: An expungement entails the actual removal of the criminal conviction from your record completely. This is especially important for individuals convicted for felony offenses. Multiple felony convictions can result in harsher criminal penalties. We help clients expunge felony records and other charges on a criminal record to avoid future severe penalty and potential difficulties in finding employment.
If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony offense, we have the experience and skill to help you minimize the future impact of your conviction. Contact our Western Massachusetts law firm to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
