Areas of Criminal Defense
include but are not limited to
White Collar Crime
Post Conviction Motions
These crimes carry serious legal consequences as well as a lasting social stigma. In Mississippi, the laws governing these crimes have become more rigid, and the punishment for a conviction can often be quite severe. Because of this, it is extremely important that you entrust your criminal defense case to experienced, local, legal counsel. Doing so is the best way to keep yourself out of jail, or even prison.
Kelly Law Office has over 27 years of experience in personal injury law in the state of Mississippi, including Brandon and Jackson as well as Rankin, Hinds, and Madison Counties. Personal injury cases range from auto accidents to job site injury and many other physical, mental, or emotional injuries. Automobile accidents can result in significant and expensive injuries that can require years of medical attention. Workers compensation cases can take years to resolve without a professional attorney on your side. Have you been hurt on the job, injured in an automobile accident, or need a wrongful death attorney? Call Kelly Law Office today at (601) 825-6455.

With Criminal Background Checks becoming part of the standard operating procedure for potential employees, it is important to know that
Not All Expungements Are the Same
Most Common Types of Expungements
Guilty pleas entered pursuant to a non-adjudication agreement
Felony and misdemeanor arrests where there was no formal charge; or where there was a charge, but no prosecution followed or the case was dismissed or remanded to the files
First offenders convicted in any Court, of any misdemeanor (except traffic offenses)
Drug possession offenses (felony and misdemeanor) committed while the offender was less than 26 years of age
Convictions of misdemeanors (except traffic violations) in Municipal Court, regardless of the offenders age, that are over 2 years old, upon a showing of good conduct
Convictions of single felony excluding violent, sexual, or drug trafficking.
Before you send off your next resume, have Kelly Law Office remove prior arrests and convictions from your record through a court ordered expungement done correctly. Because even if an expungement order is entered, if it is not drafted and handled properly, it is of no value. This can greatly limit you in your future prospects as there are various types of professional licenses that will not be issued to someone with criminal convictions on their record (no matter how long ago the conviction occurred). Furthermore, even if a degree is earned and/or a professional license is obtained, potential employers often will not hire persons with a prior criminal arrest or conviction.
