Learn More About Clearing Your Record Through An Expungement
An expungement is a civil action that seeks to completely remove or seal records of your previous criminal arrests or convictions from the eyes of the public. Even in cases where you were found not guilty of accusations against you, an employer may be able to see a record of your arrest. To protect yourself from embarrassment and keep your prior arrest information private, contact The Goldberg Law Firm in Cleveland. We have over three decades of experience defending clients’ privacy and helping them move their life forward in a positive direction.
