A criminal record could make it more difficult to get a job or even rent an apartment. Under Indiana law, expungement is a legal remedy that allows people to seal certain criminal records to the general public. In recent years, the State of Indiana has reformed its laws to make it easier for people to expunge their records. Our law firm has helped many clients take action to seal their criminal records to the maximum extent allowable under the law. Do not assume that you have no options. If you have any specific questions or concerns about clearing or sealing criminal records in Indiana, please do not hesitate to contact our expungement lawyer for help.

State and Federal Appeals

As frustrating as it can be to receive an unfavorable decision, it is not necessarily the end of the road. You have the right to file an appeal. That being said, you only have a limited amount of time to initiate an appeal in state court or federal court. Take immediate action to preserve your rights. Our law firm handles both criminal and civil appeals. Jared Michel Thomas has extensive experience representing clients in state court appeals and federal court appeals. Notably, an appeal is not simply another chance to re-litigate your case. These are complex cases and the appeals process is governed by strict rules and procedures. It is imperative that you have a skilled professional on your side. Contact our Evansville, Indiana appeals attorney for immediate assistance.
