Expungements – Clear Your Criminal Record
Thousands of people in California have criminal records long after they have served their jail sentences, completed probation, and/or paid their fines. Yet, most people don’t know that they may be able to clear the record or seal their criminal history from the public’s view.

Frequently Asked Questions About Clearing Your Criminal Record
Our criminal defense attorneys strive to answer all of your questions about expungement, from how to clear a felony from your record to understanding why it is so important to clear your criminal record.
What is expungement?
Expungement is clearing or dismissing the conviction on one’s criminal records. Your criminal record consists of all of your misdemeanor and felony convictions.
What can I clear from my criminal record?
Your criminal record consists of all of your misdemeanor and felony convictions. You may be eligible to have your arrest record sealed from public view or all of your convictions set aside and dismissed.
Is it important to clear my record?
A criminal record can prevent you from getting good jobs and benefits, obtaining credit, coaching youth sports, voting, renting an apartment, receiving certain licenses and other important activities. In today’s rough economy, employers, landlords, and government agencies are doing more extensive background checks before they hire, rent, or give licenses. An expungement dismisses the criminal offense from your record, and in most cases allows you to truthfully answer that you were not convicted of the offense.
Can all criminal convictions be cleared?
Not all criminal convictions can be expunged. Contact us now for your free consultation (916) 303-2800.
