Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 17, 2014
Musell Law, LLC is expanding their efforts to help those convicted of a criminal offense in Colorado seal their records. “Musell Law, LLC is committed to helping individuals who are eligible to seal their criminal records put the past behind them,” says Brian J. Musell, owner of the prestigious firm.
Criminal records leave those convicted unable to compete for quality jobs. Additionally, the stigma of having a record, especially if wrongfully convicted, has an impact on the individual’s relationships, confidence and quality of life. For those correctly identified, charged and convicted, once their debt is paid to society, they should have the option of a fresh start.
Quite often, good and honest work is key to a former criminal regaining self-respect and becoming a productive member of society. However, the Colorado job market is very competitive and even small Colorado companies conduct criminal background checks as part of their hiring process. Removing eligible criminal arrest records may make the difference in obtaining a job, especially in this competitive job market.
Colorado legislature recently expanded the criminal offenses that are eligible to seal. Municipal court convictions can now be sealed if certain eligibility requirements are met. Musell Law, LLC supports this new legislation and is putting forth considerable efforts on behalf of eligible applicants.
Musell Law, LLC is one of Denver’s top rated criminal defense firms. Under the direction of Brian J. Musell, the firm takes on the toughest criminal cases, including (but not limited to) DUI/DUAI, domestic violence, harassment, sexual assault, felony and misdemeanor assault, manslaughter, larceny, murder, disorderly conduct and stalking.
Brian J. Musell, a graduate of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law School, discovered criminal defense while working as an intern at the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office in Fort Collins while attending Colorado State University. “The time I spent investigating cases for the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office in Fort Collins opened my eyes to the inequities of the criminal justice system, and fueled my passion to defend the rights of the accused.” Seeing a need for a passionate individual to defend those often presumed guilty of heinous crimes, Musell went into practice with a vow to seek justice for those in need. At the time he noticed an occasional cultural bias from courts and prosecution that imposed individuals facing criminal charges with unnecessary stigma. Musell recognized a true opportunity to defend justice and fairness within the court system. He has never regretted his choice.
