Record Sealing Attorneys
If you've been convicted of a crime, you know that having that on your record can have a negative impact on your life. It's likely that if you've ever been arrested that you have a criminal record that's easily accessible to the public even if you were found innocent of the crime. This means that any employer, future employer, even your friends and family will be able to see your past. Wouldn't it be nice if that record wasn't accessible? We're here to tell you that there's a way! Our highly qualified attorneys in Rockford, IL at Vella and Lund may be able to help give you and your past a clean slate.
Record Sealing Attorneys in Rockford, IL
Our attorneys at Vella and Lund use two different methods to try and clear your criminal record from public access: expungements and sealing. Contrary to what you may have been told, sealing and expungements are usually not just automatic. One you've been convicted of a crime (or arrested), you will more than likely have an arrest record even if you're found to be not guilty or if the case has been dismissed. Our attorneys in Rockford, IL take the extra step by filing a petition to seal the file at the proper courthouse and then a court order has to be signed by a judge so your criminal record slate is cleaned. Sounds simple, but every county and every courthouse in Illinois has their own guidelines that need to be followed. That's why hiring an attorney in Rockford, IL from Vella and Lund is highly recommended in order to follow the process correctly.
