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.

Understanding Assault Under Illinois Law

Under Illinois law, an assault is defined as conduct that places another person in reasonable apprehension of receiving a battery. It’s important to understand that an assault charge doesn’t require physical contact or injury. The mere threat, when coupled with an apparent ability to cause harm, can be enough to warrant an assault charge.

Potential charges and penalties associated with assault vary based on the severity of the alleged crime. Assault may be charged as a Class C misdemeanor, which can have lasting consequences on your life. It’s important to seek an attorney’s assistance at the soonest opportunity no matter what type of assault charges you are facing. A conviction can have long-lasting impacts on your future: acting quickly with an attorney can help you reach the best possible outcome.
