In the early nineties, many prosecutors were still without a
viable connection to the numerous criminal database units.
As a result, many individuals were moving through the system
without anyone discovering their complete criminal history.
Once the additional connections were funded however, we saw a
substantial increase in court punishment as we uncovered convictions
from out of state jurisdictions and other sources.
A decade later, the information revolution poses the opposite
challenge to any individual who was the subject of arrest or
investigation. Today, law enforcement are not the only ones who can
see your record. Just about anyone with a computer and internet
connection can order up your file. In the beginning, an individual
needed to purchase this information from one of many websites.
Soon however, the database will become a literal free-for-all as
numerous courthouses begin to put their records and files online.
Now, as experienced criminal defense attorneys, we have come to
realize that sealing or destroying a criminal file is as important
if not more important than the actual disposition of the case.
Unfortunately, many people look at a case that was dismissed or a trial
that ended in acquittal and think the person was guilty nonetheless.
Likewise, many people who discover an isolated criminal conviction
over a decade old will always think of the individual as a "criminal".
This is truely unjust, as most of us have committed more than one
misdemeanor in our life. A political era of homeland security,
"terrorist" threat, and Bush administration has only helped to fuel
A UNIQUE SERVICE AND A SECURE,
Joining with computer experts with twenty years of experience in the
banking, telecom, and insurance industries, we have developed a virtual
file system with multiple levels of security and data encryption that
provides safe file access by our administrators, attorneys, and coming
soon, even our clients.
Other sites provide little information and are nothing more than a
central link to isolated attorney sites in various states. All of
our files are centrally managed for quick and virtual access by our
staff. We strive to provide the most comprehensive and
informative websites on Record Clearing and Canadian Rehabilitation.
We have made this Web site and provided these
materials for informational purposes only.
