Los Angeles Expungement Attorney

Expungement Lawyer in Los Angeles

An expungement, defined by California Penal Code 1203.4 PC, explains that once a person's criminal record is expunged, then the person is relieved of the penalties and disabilities arising out of the conviction.

Expungement is the process of going to court to ask a judge to seal a court record. An expunged record does not mean it is a destroyed record. The FBI, the police, and other public officials may still have access to seal records.

The main purpose for an expungement is to secure job opportunities, housing, and professional licenses. Criminal records affect these things and as your criminal lawyer, we will fill out all the necessary forms and appear on your behalf to get your records expunged.

Not everyone is eligible to petition for an expungement. As a general rule, you are entitled to expunge your criminal records if you were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony offense and you successfully completed probation and you are not currently being charged with a crime, on probation for a crime, or serving a sentence for a crime.

You will not be eligible to petition for an expungement if you went to state prison for the underlying crime or if the crime was that of sodomy with a child, lewd acts with a child, oral copulation with a child, or statutory rape.

The expungement process can be long and overwhelming and that is why our attorneys are here to help you and guide through the process.

We have done many expungements throughout the years and we are confident that we can effectively assist you and help you.

Contact our law firm and set up a free consultation and we will discuss the process and your eligibility further in detail.
