Legal Tune Up can help remove eligible criminal records from WORCS

Why Clean Up Your Records?

“Adverse online information can be a huge barrier for people who did no wrong, or were found not guilty or had the charges dismissed,” according to Ray Dall’Osto, a defense attorney at Gimbel Reilly Guerin & Brown. “Their opportunity for employment, housing and credit can be and is severely impacted when people look on CCAP and see this information, even when a case is dismissed.”
The Importance of Accurate Records

Removing eligible criminal records can have a positive impact for people and their families.

Landlords and employers can search criminal records in approving renters or in hiring people.
This can lead to bias against people based on the current records
Removing these records can increase the opportunities to get a new job or housing.
