Expungement Attorney in Los Angeles

Petitioning for Expungement (Record Clearing)

Having a criminal record, whether it involves an arrest or conviction, can prove to have disastrous long-term consequences on a person's life. Such a record can greatly impede an individual's endeavors, both personally and professionally, for months, years or even a lifetime. One who possesses a prior arrest or conviction may have substantial difficulty in obtaining a job, applying for a loan for a home or vehicle or pursuing secondary education.

Fortunately, there is an available legal tool that can address these issues, and it is known as expungement. Expungement is a process whereby a person's prior criminal arrest or conviction is erased or sealed forever. Effectively, it gives a person the legal right to say that they were never involved in the commission of the crime in question. A large number of criminal offenses are eligible for expungement, including both misdemeanors and felonies, and it is recommended that you contact a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer with the experience to handle these properly.

Important Information About Expungements

Legally speaking, expungements are a type of a lawsuit targeted specifically for first-time offenders. If enacted successfully, defendants whose criminal records show marks from a past offense will no longer have to worry about that offense negatively impacting their ability to find employment, purchase a home or anything else. Expungements effectively seal a person's record from being viewed by other professionals who could later use the knowledge against a defendant whose past is no longer a part of their future. It should be understood, however, that expunging a record does not remove the criminal mark from existence. Rather, it removes the record from general review, i.e. that of the public.
