A common misconception is that misdemeanor charges are minor or trivial cases. People often believe that they are automatically expunged or cleared from your record when the case ends.
The reality is that people are sentenced to supervision, probation and even jail on misdemeanor cases. If such a sentence occurs, a misdemeanor can have lifelong consequences on your future and especially job prospects. Even if your misdemeanor case is dismissed, the arrest is not automatically cleared and will show up on a background check.
That is why it is imperative to select a criminal defense attorney devoted to your case and with an eye towards your future. Our office is devoted solely to the practice of criminal defense and we specialize in expungements and sealings. We will create an individualized legal strategy tailored specifically to you and the ability to possibly clear your record.
