Don’t Let a Criminal Conviction Affect Your Livelihood
Aside from the potential legal punishments for a criminal conviction, you will likely be facing serious social and financial impacts if you are charged with a crime. Any type of criminal conviction will stay on the public record and can have an adverse effect on your livelihood and your ability to support yourself and your family. Many jobs require you to disclose criminal convictions before you are hired and in some cases a conviction can result in either being fired from your job. You will also be required to disclose your conviction on financial aid and credit applications, which may prevent you from obtaining student loans or a mortgage. At the Law Office of David G. Kontos, our attorney understands that there are circumstances in which good people find themselves facing criminal charges. When your life and livelihood is on the line, you want to know that you are getting the best legal representation available.
