Allegheny County, PA, Pardons Lawyer
A past criminal record can cause problems at the most inconvenient of times: during a job interview; when completing an apartment application; when applying for college. Individuals in this position may be able to seek relief through an expungement or a pardon, both post-conviction options that can clear a criminal record.
At DeLuca, Ricciuti & Konieczka, we help clients explore their post conviction options, aiming to minimize the effect that charges, a conviction, or a criminal record have on their lives. To find out more about your legal options to seal a criminal record, contact our law firm today to schedule an initial consultation.
If you were charged with but not convicted of a criminal offense, the record of that offense can be removed now through an expungement. Not all offenses can be expunged. Generally, expungement applies to summary offenses (lower-level offenses) and traffic offenses.
Certain criminal convictions can be removed after 10 years. Contact our law firm to determine if you can clear your criminal record through an expungement.
Certain offenses cannot be removed through an expungement. Individuals in this situation who wish to have a criminal offense removed from their record may seek a pardon by applying through the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons. Technically, there is no offense that cannot be pardoned. However, the decision of whether a conviction can be removed through a pardon is left to the Board of Pardons' discretion. Our attorneys can assess your case to determine if you may be eligible to receive a pardon.
