About to Graduate? Criminal Record? Better Think Expungements

It’s April, which means that college seniors staring down commencement day are preparing for their post-collegiate lives, whether that means deciding on which grad school to attend, where to apply for – or accept – a job, and where to set down roots. I know these seniors are getting advice from everyone right now: Parents, teachers, mentors and friends are clutch when trying to decide the future when you’re just stepping outside the comfort zone of college. This Morgantown criminal defense lawyer would like to give a little advice, too – not only to my fellow Montaineers, but to students everywhere who are about to embark on the “real world”: If you have one, clear up your criminal record. Things can get crazy in college (and let’s face it, West Virginia University specifically), and students get charged with all kinds offenses – from disorderly conduct to underage drinking to driving under the influence. All that information on the charge and/or arrest is then a matter of public record, and will be available to every employer and grad school you send a resume or application to. I had a client who was almost denied an apartment lease because of a criminal charge that had been dismissed but still appeared on his record. Bad, right? But here’s the good news I wanted to make you aware of: Many charges can be expunged in West Virginia, which means that it will be permanently removed from your record. My firm files expungements all the time for college students and recent graduates who are trying to get a clean slate – and I’d be happy to help you, too. Give me a call and let me know how I can help.

"I had hired Mr Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before i had met her for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her. My mistake to hire him for her but her blessing. I know she didn’t thank you enough so allow me to for her. Very highly recommend Mr. Logue.” A.C.

I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped for. Sean and his team worked hard for me. They're the best! Anonymous

After the salesmen told me my gun application "wouldn't be a problem," I was charged with an illegal attempt to posses a firearm. Sean Logue has a good relationship with the DA, but still pushed them to have a trial and I was found not guilty of the felony charge. Sean is a tough and smart lawyer who knows his way around the courtrooms. Anonymous

I am happy to be able to share this information with everyone. Mr. Logue gave attention to our problem immediately and resolved the issue for us quickly. He is an attorney who is respected, not just by us but the court system. I am thankful we found him, and would recommend him to anyone needing a great attorney to represent them. Anonymous

Mr Logue was the one I hired after talking to other attorneys about my case. He was the most knowledgeable and explained everything to me about his plan for me moving forward. He was always available to answer my questions and fought hard and got my charge dismissed!! Don't waste your time looking for anyone else to help you. Mr Logue did an amazing job and very professional! Anonymous
