BOYNECLARKE LLP Announces New Record Suspension Service

Posted in: Press Releases

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, January 16, 2018Terry Sheppard, partner and criminal lawyer at BOYNECLARKE LLP, is offering a new record suspension (formally known as pardon) service. For a flat fee, Terry will complete the complicated and lengthy application process and apply on your behalf for a record suspension.

What is a record suspension?

A record suspension allows those who have been convicted of a criminal offense, but have served their time or demonstrated good behavior, to have their criminal record kept private if they successfully receive a record suspension.

Record suspensions allow those with a past criminal record to gain employment, travel outside Canada and ultimately, provide freedom.

The Service

Criminal records can affect many aspects of a person’s life such as employment, child custody, education, and travel.  Lawyers can ensure that the complicated process is fully accurate and complete and will provide you with the highest chance of a successful record suspension.

“Many people are not aware that we offer this service,” says Sheppard.  “In fact, I’m one of very few lawyers who provides this service in Halifax,” something that is surprising to Sheppard as it is a complicated application process. “When you come to a lawyer for a record suspension you can feel confident that the application will be done right.”

For more information or to see if you are eligible for a record suspension, contact Terry Sheppard at 902-460-3401.
