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?

Domestic Violence Lawyer Near Me

What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is a term that encompasses many different forms of abuse, including hitting, pushing, verbal threatening, and harassment. Domestic violence charges can lead to the imposition of an Order of Protection, jail time, and fines. In Illinois, those convicted of domestic battery must participate in 26 weeks of domestic violence classes, and the resulting mark on your record is permanent. If you have been arrested for any kind of domestic violence, your first call should be to an experienced attorney.
