Expungement of Criminal Records

Don't stand alone, know your rights

If you meet certain requirements, and depending on the nature of your conviction, you may be eligible to apply to have a conviction expunged from your record. The purpose of a dismissal is to relieve you from penalties and disabilities that may result from the conviction being on your record.

You should note: certain convictions (sex crimes) are not eligible for dismissal.

Felonies require a hearing, misdemeanors do not. You may also be eligible to apply for a Certificate of Rehabilitation, which may relieve you of the duty to register pursuant to Penal Code section 290.

If you or someone you know is seeking an expungement, dismissal or a Certificate of Rehabilitation, we advise you to call our law offices for a free consultation.
