Record expunged
I hired Paul Podlejski to get my record expunged a few years back. He was awesome. I didn’t have to see the judge or anything. I recommend him to everyone who mentions needing a lawyer. I think he’s one of the best.

Inaccessible, lazy, plea bargain attorney. Waste of money.
Worst lawyer in Anderson. Wants all money up front which is bad business from the get go. No incentive to work your case from that point. Overloads himself to make more money to support his playboy lifestyle. Inaccessible, doesn't return phone calls, poor note taker and retention of information. I could go on forever, but I would get exhausted from typing. Don't hire this guy and if you do DO NOT PAY ALL UP FRONT. You will regret it for sure. Once I finally spoke up and voiced some concerns he sited irreparable attorney client relationship. Had to fire him at that point with nothing to show for it but a home detention ankle bracelet. I pointed out his downsides tactfully and also pointed out his better qualities as well. And I'm not referring to his hair, suits, cologne and sunglasses. Pretty boy, plea bargain attorney on his best days, imposter in a suit on his worst. A complete waste of time and money. Probably spent a total of 3-4 hours on my case. And that's being generous. Don't hire this guy. I am a single father of a 13 year old son, and my case centers around my son. He is single with no children and clueless in this area. Pretty boy all the way.
