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.

Criminal Matters We Handle

Like every type of legal matter, each criminal case is different, with its own charges and potential penalties. Illinois law sets out many types of criminal offenses, and the prosecution must prove specific elements of each offense beyond a reasonable doubt in order to obtain a criminal conviction. The right defense help makes it significantly more challenging for a prosecutor to achieve this. 

Our law firm takes on all types of criminal cases, including:

We assist with all types of felony and misdemeanor charges under Illinois law. Many people think that misdemeanor charges are not serious issues, and they do not need professional legal help. However, misdemeanors can have serious and lasting penalties, just like felony offenses, so you want to do everything possible to avoid a conviction or minimize the consequences that you face.
