Lance Turnbow is contacted daily by people who are wanting to expunge an old arrest. In most cases they have just been turned down for a job because of their criminal history. Unfortunately many of these people did not hire a skilled attorney to represent them when they were arrested for the original charge and many are not eligible for an expunction.
