A Criminal Offense Does Not Need To Be A Permanent Stain

If you have a criminal record, you have likely experienced some difficulties in rebuilding your life. You may have trouble securing employment, obtaining student loans or even simply finding a place to live. While a criminal past can be an encumbrance, you may not need to be tethered to it for the rest of your days.

Expungement — the process of a having a legal record sealed or erased — is one of the many areas in which we help our clients in the Covington area. At Russell & Ireland Law Group, LLC, our experienced criminal defense lawyers know that your past does not necessarily dictate who you are today, and we take pride in helping clients successfully move forward with their lives.

An Avenue To A Brighter Future

The expungement of a felony or misdemeanor conviction can effectively clear your criminal record. While Kentucky makes this legal action available to some individuals, there is a process involved, and there are eligibility requirements that must be met. Some factors that are typically weighed include:

  • The severity of the crime itself
  • The extent of the individual's criminal record
  • The amount of time that has passed since the conviction

At Russell & Ireland Law Group, LLC, our firm can offer you the assistance you need as you work through the expungement process. The applications and certifications that are required can be complex, and an experienced expungement attorney can help ensure that your information is as accurate as possible.
