Clients often ask if we can assist them in clearing their records from out of county courts such as DuPage or Lake. The answer is YES!
Unfortunately, to clear every arrest on your record, a separate expungement needs to be filed in each county in which the arrest originated. For example, if you have an arrest in Chicago and also an arrest in Roselle, a petition to expunge would be necessary in both Cook and DuPage County, respectively, in order to clear your criminal record.
At the Law Offices of M. Fakhoury, we often file multiple expungements concurrently in multiple counties to clear your criminal record as fast as possible. There is no need to hire an attorney from Cook and a different attorney from DuPage or Lake Counties to clear your record. Doing so would only add confusion and extra expense.
