The Law Office of Adam Williams provides legal assistance for any individual with a criminal record. The expungement of a record can provide a fresh start for those looking to live a life unencumbered by past mistakes.
In the state of Oklahoma, public criminal records can be accessed by employers and landlords. Most people do not realize that felony and misdemeanor court proceedings remain on a record even after the successful completion of a deferred sentence. Jail time, even if no charges were filed, will also remain. These blemishes can cause individuals to be denied housing or passed over for employment.
For these reasons, attorney Adam Williams works to expunge criminal records for qualified clients.
Individuals are encouraged to contact the law office for an analysis of personal criminal records. Depending on each client’s eligibility, there are two types of expungements Mr. Williams can pursue under Oklahoma state law. The first, 22 O.S.991(c), is the sealing of court records following the successful completion of a deferred sentence. The general public will not be able to see the record. A second type of expungement, 22 O.S. 18, provides for a full erasure of the criminal offense.
Mr. Williams has practiced criminal law in Oklahoma for six years and has served in the United States Air Force for sixteen years. He believes strongly in advocating for the rights of the criminally accused.
Mr. Williams said: “For better or worse, the information age has put unprecedented amounts of data at just about everyone’s fingertips. Fair or not, that’s the world we all live in and it’s extremely important to erase blemishes on our records as soon as the law allows.”
