Customer Question
I pleaded guilty in the...
I pleaded guilty in the magistrates court in 2008, i received 150 hours community service work which i completed, as i understood i never received a conviction. After applying for a job recently my background checks have come up with a criminal record. If i never received a conviction, how long does the case stay on on my record and is there a way to find out why i received a conviction thats if i did?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
