Chicago Post-Conviction Relief Attorney

Just because you were convicted of a crime doesn’t mean that your conviction must forever haunt employment background checks, stop you from becoming a U.S. citizen or remain a deportation threat.

There is no reason to let a youthful mistake, misunderstanding, past criminal record—or especially a criminal identity theft—be a barrier to future opportunities. Many options of post-conviction relief are available to help you, even after you have served time, finished probation, or paid your fines. Relief is critical for clearing the records of victims of criminal identity theft.

Through post-conviction proceedings, the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus can attempt to lessen the negative consequences of having been convicted of a crime. Your background may be used against you in rental matters, employment and education opportunities, by Immigration and Naturalization—and even socially.

Don’t Make the Mistake of Not Hiring a Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney

These consequences might include a fine, court fees, a mark on your criminal record, a revocation of your driver’s or professional license, jail time, or a long-term prison sentence. Of course, being convicted of a crime can also harm your personal and professional reputation, and may result in you losing your job, and having difficulty securing employment or housing in the future.
