Edmonds Criminal Defense Attorney for Expungement Petitions

Living with a criminal record can be difficult, to say the least. If you have been convicted of a crime, you may be experiencing considerable difficulty in securing credit or finding suitable housing, in addition to the fact that many employers will refuse to hire a job applicant who has a criminal record. You cannot simply hide the fact of your conviction, as failure to disclose this information can lead to serious consequences in the future.
