DuPage County Expungement Attorneys

Assisting Clients in Lombard, Bloomingdale, and Throughout Northern Illinois

Depending on the underlying offense, you may be eligible to have your criminal record sealed or expunged. Expungement is often utilized by individuals who were arrested for, or convicted of, a juvenile crime. Not every crime committed by a juvenile is expungeable. For example, you cannot have your record expunged for a murder or felony sex offense conviction. However, if you were never convicted of a crime or if the underlying offense upon which you were convicted would be a minor misdemeanor or petty offense, you should be able to have your arrest or conviction expunged.

Our criminal defense attorneys at Mevorah Law Offices LLC work hard to ensure your expungement is properly requested, and we follow up to make sure the police and law enforcement comply with the expungement order. Call 630-932-9100630-932-9100 for a free confidential consultation to discuss whether you are eligible for expungement or to have your record sealed with an Illinois criminal defense lawyer.

Why You Should Have Your Record Expunged

There are many reasons you may want to have your record expunged, such as:

  1. If you were wrongly arrested or accused of a crime (charges were dropped, or you were acquitted), you may not want to be subject to the biases of others who would perform a background check.
  2. If you are the subject of a police background check, having your record expunged improves your chances of not being labeled as a criminal or arrested for a similar charge based upon the arresting officer's belief you may have the propensity to commit a crime.
  3. Employers or prospective employers will often routinely run background checks. An expungement would ensure they are not persuaded by your past or question your veracity and character.

What Is the Difference Between an Expungement and Having Your Record Sealed?

When your record is sealed, employers and private investigators will not be able to see the content of the portion of your record that is sealed. However, law enforcement will still have access to the information.

When your arrest or criminal record is expunged, no one, not even the police and law enforcement, will have access to your record; it is destroyed. We follow up to ensure police departments follow through on the expungement order.
