Highly impressive
June 3, 2017
I was totally impressed with their approach as they walked me through the reduction process step by step with detailed instructions, and utmost professionalism.

This place is a joke
May 19, 2017
I provided them all documentation up front. For $250 all they had to do was answer a simple yes or no question....does a PC 17(b), which has already restored firearm rights in CA restore firearm rights federally? So they say they have to do to "research". I gave them a PC 17(b) court order, a California DOJ criminal print out, a FBI criminal printout, a California Personal Firearm Eligibility Check affirming firearm rights, and after weeks....nothing! All they did was copy the information I gave them on the previous documents notated, "We are not working on this case." Apparently they either don't have time or don't have competent lawyers. Don't waste your money.

Anybody use the clear background ?
August 6, 2016
I used the removal background service. I was told the removal background service was suppose to remove your criminal background from 30 commonly used background companies that employers and landlord use when conducting a background check. Since then I had one job interview, got the job offer and a week later after the background check was done I was emailed basically stating they had to take the offer back because of the misdemeanor on my background which why I gave 3 stars. Now i'm a little worried as I was before I came across the service. Have anybody else used the removal background service ? If so how did it go for you ?

Phil August 18, 2016

Did you have more than just a misdemeanor? I was thinking of using this web site.I don't want to be scammed. I have been scammed before, its like people take advantage of others personal info and use them for numerous of who know whats.These days you never know.

Did you wait the 14 days after, or confirm the deletion?

Demone Reno August 23, 2016

No, just the one misdemeanor. I won't necessarily say it's a scam just YET. For one, I don't think I waited 14 days after the process was done because I was anxious to interview for a job so that could have been a reason my background showed.

C. Moon October 28, 2016

@Demone Reno -Did you ever reconcile this? Find out if they really DID get the records removed? Or ask for your money back? Or any other helpful info for others considering using that service? Thanks for any updates...

Darryl September 17, 2018

I had the same issue when I applied for a position and was given a tentative offer. After the background check came back the company rescinded the offer because of the felony. I contacted Highbee who stated that certain background checks will still show the felony. Specifically, those that are required to comply with FCRA have to accurately report all information. I didn't realize that when paid for the services.

ShayLaWinns March 19, 2019

Question? Could I use this service so that con-Ed won’t see my background?

Excellent Service
August 17, 2015

February 18, 2015
As for me,this service was well worth it! I never gambled between making right or wrong decisions.

Michael May 19, 2017

If you never gambled with wrong decisions, why did you need a lawyer?

December 11, 2014
Higbee and Associates is a wonderful firm. Great people and even better service. At every turn they kept me updated on what was going on with my expungement. I recently received all the documents to my case in the mail, and I have to say I a quite pleased with how everything turned out. They gave me my life back, and a second chance at that. I am forever grateful to the staff at Higbee and Associates, they were professional, knowledgeable, and just excellent in how they handled everything.

Outstanding Work.. Thanks for all of your assistance!!!!!
December 10, 2014

I had two cases reviewed to be expunged. One was granted and one was not. This was not an easy scenario plus it was across multiple states. Higbee had a number of attorneys well versed in the varying laws across state line and impact in one state on the other. They were willing to go another round on the one that was not granted but I was happy with the one that was granted. It was the main one I wanted to pursue. If I change my mind to complete the second one I will not hesitate to contact Highbee.

The team treated me very professionally and was very prompt addressing any and all questions I had regardless of how simplistic they may have been. They provided recommendation and best/worst case scenarios. All of which, I think we came out with closest to the best.

We also pursued a firearms disability exemption (restoration) and that was also granted. Higbee and associates went so far as to continue to reach out to the state police until my records within their system reflected the updated information as well.

I am very very happy with the results and would not delay in contacting them or recommending anyone contact them Higbee and associates. The main thing to keep in mind is to be patient and leave it to the professionals.

Thank you very much to everyone that worked on my cases!!! Tyrone G

Top Notch - Used Them Twide
November 17, 2014
I have used this firm twice. The first was to reduce a 1990's California Felony to a misdemeanor and have it dismissed. Success!!! The second time was to restore my Firearm Rights in Washington after the Felony expungement. Again, Success! This team worked tirelessly to review my cases and take them in front of the court system with expertise and excellent representation. I would recommend them to anyone trying to pick up the pieces from mistakes in the past! Well done!

Tim Miller December 10, 2014

They are helping me to clean up my past . Thank you Recordgone Team.

Fake reviews
May 31, 2013
Check out the reviews of this place elsewhere online. The only reviews that look legit are the negative ones. The positive ones are obviously shills trying to keep their ratings up, and they flood the scam sites with them. This is an online reputation gimmick. Just because of that alone I wouldn't trust them. They've already lied to me.

May 3, 2013
This is a scam. I was a previous client for this fraud expungement lawyer. Keith mayer who previously commented does in fact work for do not be fooled. I took out a loan to get my record but instead got tricked for$1200. Karma will get back to them.

Excellent Service - Great Law Firm
February 17, 2013
Hat's off to Higbee & Associates! I had many questions at the front end during the process and at the end. Everyone I dealt with was helpful and very professional. It took a little over a year to have my felony set aside and dismissed but let me tell you it was well worth the wait and investment. All my rights have been restored to me including gun ownership! I would recommend this firm for record clearing to anyone looking to have their record cleared up. This firm was consistent and went over and above to make sure I understood what was going on every step of the way. The client account system is state of the art and will keep you in on the "KNOW" about your case ever step of the way. No need to call every week for an update, your client account will be linked to your email if you choose to and an alert will be sent to your email when their is an update or change in your case. Thank you Mathew, Shae and the rest of the team, I appreciate all you did to get me cleared, it feels great to know that what happened 23 yrs ago from one dumb mistake is now cleared. Thanks again! Best Regards, Mark Is The Smartest Thing Ive Ever Done.
