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?

Evanston, IL Criminal Defense Attorney

As a defendant in the criminal justice system, you have a range of emotions that you are feeling, which can range from stress to fear. The legal system has a language of its own, and most defendants do not understand it. Not only do you need someone who can put things to you in plain English, but you also need an advocate. Without someone fighting on your side, you are left in the position of taking what the criminal justice system gives you, and the results can be harsh.

What Your Criminal Defense Lawyer Will Help Protect

Your fears are not unfounded. During and after your criminal case, you can face many consequences and lose numerous things. They include:

Some things in this world are too important to leave to change. Given the effect that conviction of even a misdemeanor could have on you, criminal defense representation is a must in your case. However, you do not just need any lawyer. You need one who is committed to fighting for you and working to help you achieve the best possible result in your case.

Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer Early in Your Case
