According to the Society for Human Resource Management, approximately 92% of employers conduct criminal background checks before hiring a potential new employee. A criminal charge on your record can have long lasting implications on your life and your job prospects. Because of this, it is important to make sure your record is criminal charge free.
Pennsylvania allows for the expungement of many criminal charges that may have been filed against you. An expungement is a court order directing all of the institutions that have records of your charge(s) to destroy those records. This will prevent anyone running a background from seeing that those charges have been filed.
If you or someone you know has been criminally charged, contact the experienced attorneys of the Law Offices of Justin J. Ketchel, LLC at 412-456-1221. We can evaluate your charge(s) for free and determine whether you are an eligible candidate to have your charge(s) expunged.
