Extensive Experience · Dedicated To Helping You Move On
I'm attorney Benham J. Sims, and I help my clients move on with their lives after minor criminal charges. Over the past 20 years, I have held numerous roles, including criminal defense lawyer, prosecutor and judge. During this time, I have been named to Top Lawyers, 2012, by Louisville Magazine, former Fraternal Order of Police Prosecutor of the Year, and I have been involved with thousands of expungements in the state of Kentucky.
Expungement is the legal process for removing a criminal charge or conviction from your criminal record. People commonly seek to expunge their record when applying to college or graduate school, seeking a new job or promotion, or seeking to volunteer at their local school or church.
To learn more about expungement and find out if a charge on your record can be expunged, call my law firm at 502-589-6190 or contact me online to arrange a free consultation.
A Minor Criminal Charge Can Put You at a Major Disadvantage — Don't Let Your Past Determine Your Future
Today over 96% of all employers run criminal background checks prior to making a hiring decision. If there is a conviction on your criminal record, over 50% of the companies will not even interview applicants. A relatively minor criminal charge(s) can become a life sentence for those seeking a new job.
Under Kentucky law, if a criminal offense is expunged, you do not have to disclose it on a job application, college application or any other application.
Unfortunately, many people mistakenly assume that a dismissed charge will not appear on their criminal record. A charge resulting in a dismissal or a criminal conviction remains on your record forever unless you return to court and file a motion to expunge.
