  1. As far back as you have something in your background.

    An attorney-client relationship is NOT created by the answering of this question. If you would like to discuss your matter more fully with my office, please contact me to set up an initial consultation.


  2. There is no set limit. In this day and age, if you have a history, they will probably find it.


  3. There is no limitation. Arrests/convictions as a minor are not so easily accessible, but certainly anything after the age of 18 would be.
