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.

Why Post-Conviction Relief?

Fighting To Protect Clients Charged With Crimes throughout Illinois

Criminal Defense Options

If you have been charged with a crime, in general, your options are that you can fight the charges and, in working with an attorney, seek that evidence be dismissed if it was obtained in violation of your rights, or (also working with your attorney), work out a plea deal that represents a negotiation of what both you and the police/prosecutors are seeking.

During each of these steps, working with an experienced attorney is essential, as they will have a very good idea of where the prosecution’s weak spots are and what the negotiating points are. An experienced attorney will also be able to ensure that your criminal record is as protected from harm as possible.

Your Rights
