Los Angeles Expungement Attorney

Criminal Lawyer for Expungement of Criminal Records

Expungement is a legal process where a conviction or plea of either guilty or no contest in a criminal case is set aside and the case is dismissed. It relieves the defendant of certain penalties that result from a criminal conviction, such as having to reveal your criminal record on employment applications.

Whether your conviction was a misdemeanor or felony, it is important to attempt to get your record expunged. If you have a felony conviction, it must first be reduced to a misdemeanor before it can be expunged. Under the California Penal Code, it is one in conjunction with an expungement petition. This applies only to what are called "wobblers," which is crimes that can be charged as a felony or misdemeanor. It is possible to petition the court to withdraw the jury verdict, a plea of guilty, or dismiss the criminal charges. An expungement is not an option for those who have been convicted of felony child molestation, some sex crimes, and certain traffic offenses.
