You Deserve Compensation For Criminal Background Check Error

Did you lose a job prospect, housing situation or another opportunity because your background check came back with wrong or outdated information? You may be entitled to significant compensation. The law imposes strict limits on what information can be disclosed in background checks. It also requires employers, landlords and background check companies to give you notice of the report and an opportunity to challenge it.

At DHF Law, P.C., we can help you dispute the criminal history background check and pursue compensation.

Millions Of Dollars In Proven Case Results

Not many lawyers represent consumers in background check cases – and fewer still obtain recoveries totaling in the tens of millions. At DHF Law, P.C., we have secured millions for clients.

Background Checks Aren’t Foolproof

Mistakes and illegal disclosures happen more often than you’d think. Background check companies routinely make errors such as:

  • Reporting information for the wrong person (mismatching names, especially among those with common names)
  • Disclosing sealed or expunged records
  • Disclosing outdated information (including old criminal convictions)
  • Providing misleading information (such as misreporting charges)
  • Misclassifying criminal offenses
  • Leaving out critical information (such as an acquittal)

You should not pay the price for the mistakes of background check companies that care more about their bottom line than the rights and reputations of consumers. At DHF Law, P.C., we’ll stand up for you, fighting for every penny of available compensation.
