Understanding Your Options

An expungement and a pardon are two very different things, and both of those are different than sealing a criminal record. Attorney Fiscella will sit down with you and clearly explain the choice that would be best for you. He is deeply familiar with both Illinois law and federal law, and he will work tirelessly to clear your record.

  • Expungement: This is normally used for completely removing an arrest or case disposition from your record. Expungements are commonly used to erase misdemeanor arrests, including retail theft, drug possession, prostitution, solicitation, vandalism, disorderly conduct and similar crimes. Usually, even law enforcement agencies would not have access to records that were expunged.
  • Sealing a record: Sealing prevents the record from being viewed by the public, including potential employers. However, these records are still available to law enforcement agencies and some other governmental bodies. There are strict requirements concerning the crimes eligible for sealing, and Mr. Fiscella is familiar with them.
  • Pardon: These are used to clear a conviction from your record. This can be a lengthy process and involves petitioning the governor, not a court. Mr. Fiscella will evaluate your eligibility for a pardon and advise you honestly.
