Top 10 Reasons to Use a Lawyer for Expungement
Reason 6: We Go to Court FOR You
We have represented clients from all over the world, because criminal convictions follow you wherever you go. Just because you are not a current resident of the state of Ohio, does not mean that an Ohio conviction will not prevent you from a job in another state. In the state of Ohio, as part of the expungement process, a hearing is required that may require the presence of the client in court. Often times, our out-of-state and out-of-country clients cannot make the trip back to Ohio to make their case. We have represented dozens of out-of-state applicants who have travel limitations, medical issues, job or education responsibilities that prevent them from appearing in person at the hearing. In many of those cases, we have successfully filed motions with the court to waive their appearance, and our team has gone to court on their behalf – and won!
Here is what a few of our out-of-state clients had to say about their experience:
After a long time with the same company, I began to look for a new job and knew that a background check could hold me back due to a minor mistake I made years ago. The team at OhioExpungementLaw.com supported me at each step of the way and represented me during the expungement hearing because I live in another state. Thanks especially to Greg and Sam for your help! – W.T.
I am very pleased with the assistance I received in submitting my expungement request. Although I have lived in another state for 9 years, the process was very timely and seamless without me having to return to Ohio to complete. Sarah, paralegal to Mr. Mathews, was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Thank you very much. – A.M.
