Pardons

Pardons in New Haven, CT

Criminal records, especially felony convictions, can have a damaging impact on many areas of an individual’s life, including on obtaining employment, housing, student loans, federal benefits, licenses, and gun permits, as well as international travel.

Invest in Your Future

Erasure of a criminal record, also known as a pardon, is a way to invest in the future. The lawyers at Knight & Cerritelli Attorneys at Law know the pardon process well and can offer guidance through this complex process.

The firm represents clients before the Board of Pardons and Paroles. While it is not required to have any attorney represent you, it is strongly advised. The process is complicated and burdensome. Often, people try to obtain pardons on their own and are denied. Unfortunately, there is a year-long wait before one can apply again.

The lawyers here assist by ensuring that the application is complete, professional, and persuasive, and it contains all the necessary supporting documentation. Additionally, the lawyers will prepare and argue the petition before the Board of Pardons. We can help with the following types of pardons:

Full expungement pardon: This type of pardon erases the entire criminal record.

Provisional pardon: This kind of pardon prevents employers from accessing criminal records.
