Customer Question
Greetings, I was convicted of...
Greetings, I was convicted of armed robbery as an adult at 17 years of age. I was released and served 5 years probation. I am now 41 and have been in restaurant management for the last 10 years and my opportunities to relocate and advance have obviously been stopped due to my background checks. I'm wondering about clemency. The thought of going hunting with my future kids will also be eliminated. Can clemecu help and what are the steps? I live and was convicted in Florida.

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
