Felony Expungement

A felony conviction on your record can weigh you down mentally and prevent you from obtaining meaningful employment. In today’s very competitive job market, most employers conduct background checks. Therefore, it is essential that you do everything possible to give yourself the best possible opportunity in this extremely competitive job market. Under Penal Code section 1203.4, there is an allowance for us to file a petition on your behalf with the court to have your felony conviction expunged. Once granted by the court, this petition will set aside your original conviction and allow you to apply for jobs with complete confidence so that you may answer honestly that you have never been convicted of a felony! California Penal Code section 1203.4 permits a person with a felony conviction to petition the court to have the court reopen the case, set aside your guilty plea, your nolo contendere (no contest) plea or factual finding of guilt, and set aside the conviction and dismiss the case. Moving forward in this regard, you will no longer be considered to have been convicted of a felony by the state of California. Your criminal record will be permanently changed to display a dismissal rather than a felony conviction. After the conviction is expunged by the court, you can truthfully tell employers, your family and all other interested parties that you have not previously been convicted of a felony.

Misdemeanor Expungement

In California, being convicted of a misdemeanor does not just weigh on you mentally, but it will affect you negatively when you seek to secure employment in this very tough job market. This affects you and your family’s future. The good news is that there is relief available that allows you to forget your past and embrace your future. This law firm will file a petition with the court on your behalf under California Penal Code section 1203.4. We will ask the court to expunge your misdemeanor conviction. Once granted by the court, this petition will set aside your original misdemeanor conviction and allow you to pursue employment opportunities with complete confidence. You will not have to worry about answering honestly that you have never been convicted of a crime!

You qualify for a Penal Code section 1203.4 misdemeanor expungement if you satisfy the following criteria:

  1. You have to be charged with a state court conviction, not a federal one.
  2. You must have successfully completed probation; however, if you are not given probation, at least one year must pass since your conviction date. However, if you are still on probation, there are some early termination probation services that we can offer you.
  3. It is imperative that you have satisfied all of the requirements of your sentence, including fines, restitution, mandatory program compliance, community service and other requisites that were imposed by the court at the time of sentencing.
  4. In order to qualify, you must not currently be charged with another criminal offense, be on probation for another criminal matter or be serving a sentence for another criminal offense.
