Whether you are applying for a job, a loan or an apartment rental, chances are you are likely to face a criminal background check. While background checks were once relatively rare, the Internet has made it easy for potential employers and others to discover information about a person's criminal record. Unfortunately, even those who were not convicted of a crime could find themselves denied opportunities because information about them shows up in a criminal background check.
The good news is that, in some circumstances, Texas law offers options for clearing and sealing criminal records. At The Law Office of Leon Reed Jr., we can explain your rights and help determine whether you are eligible for an expungement or orders of nondisclosure (record sealing) of your criminal record.
