Q: Attorney Tully, I have a prior conviction which is preventing me from getting hired at certain jobs. What can I do about it?

A: Well you may be in luck. One option is getting a pardon from the Governor but that is a long difficult process. A better alternative might be the following: Governor Wolf just signed into law (effective in November, 2016) legislation that allows for the sealing of arrest and conviction records for certain 2nd and 3rd misdemeanor charges. It is not a perfect solution but it may work for you. Call me to see if you qualify. Bernie
