Working To Reduce The Impact On Your Life
If you are a foreign student, a criminal conviction can have immigration consequences with regard to your student visa. If you are pursuing a career in law enforcement, government service or the military, relatively minor offenses can have lasting consequences. Potential employers also routinely check applicants’ criminal histories. A clean record should be the goal of any student and parent. You need to protect your rights and freedom. Put Aiken & O’Halloran on your side as soon as possible.
