Inquire Here For Help Seeking An Expungement

Upon successful completion of the terms and conditions of probation, an individual is potentially entitled to petition the court to reduce felony charges to misdemeanors and clear or expunge the conviction from your record. Our office will do the required work to make sure that all appropriate motions are filed in order to have all legally available remedies granted.

If an individual is charged with a “wobbler” offense, the charges can be reduced to misdemeanors, prior to record expungement. A “wobbler” offense is a crime that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. If the charge is a “non alternative” felony, reduction of the charges to misdemeanor is not possible. While reduction of the charge is not available in the above mentioned situation, clearance is.

Any individual who competes the terms of either felony or misdemeanor probation, including the payment of all fees and fines, without a violation is legally entitled to expungement. A court can use its’ discretion in granting a request for expungement for any individual who has completed probation but has had violations during the course of probation. Our office has been very successful in persuading the court to grant our Motions to Expunge because of the individual attention that goes into each motion.

With very few exceptions, once expungement has been granted, convictions do not need to be disclosed to  employers.
