Individuals with criminal records often possess valuable skill sets, but their public criminal history disqualifies them from jobs using those skills.
MyClearStart is a service to assist individuals in determining their eligibility for having a criminal record expunged and guides potential employees through the legal steps that may clear adverse information from their past.
The MyClearStart service helps job seekers become productive members of society and provides employers with experienced employees that are eager to prove themselves.
The MyClearStart’s service was inspired by the Innocence Project, a non-profit organization representing individuals who have been wrongfully convicted and subsequently imprisoned.
The first step of the MyClearStart service checks whether you are eligible to have your criminal record sealed or expunged. The MyClearStart service includes a free eligibility test from the Law Firm of Higbee & Associates. If the eligibility test confirms you are eligible, you can retain Higbee & Associates to handle your case or you can hire a different law firm.
Once your lawyers finish your case, return here to obtain information about submitting your court order through the Foundation for Continuing Justice to the Expungement Clearinghouse, to have your record removed from private databases that hundreds of background screening companies use.
