California Expungement Attorneys - Clean & Seal Your Arrest Records Today

There was a time when having a criminal record wasn’t as big of a deal. This has changed over the past five years as background checks have become popular, inexpensive, and easy to obtain. A recent study found that 8 out of every 10 companies now run a background check on potential employees as part of their standard due diligence inquiry into the candidates.

How does the process work?

Step 1
The first step is to hire an attorney who will help you prepare for the expungement. They will assess your situation and develop a strong case for you.
Step 2
The next step is to file a motion of expungement with a California state court. Our attorneys will help you with all of the documentation that goes into filing for an expungement.
Step 3
A judge will be assigned to your case and will assess your petition for expungement. With a strong enough case, they will usually go ahead and expunge the conviction.
Step 4
If the judge decides to expunge your case, your conviction will be dismissed and cleared from all standard background checks.

Expungements in Orange County

Our professional attorneys have over 25 years of legal experience with more than 25,000 records cleared. Most of those records were expunged right here in Orange County, California. Many people have the misconception that their criminal records will disappear after time. However, this requires legal filing and granting of a Petition of relief by the Court.

Getting A Petition of Relief

To get a criminal record expunged, you need legal experience in petitioning the court to relieve your convictions. This could include reducing a felony to a misdemeanor or removing the conviction completely. Once relief is granted, you can honestly answer “no” to questions regarding past criminal convictions. This also prevents potential landlords and employers from seeing your record on their routine background checks.

What are expungements in Orange County?

A California criminal expungement is a legal process that petitions the court to allow you to withdraw prior findings or pleas of guilt. Then, you can enter a new “not guilty” case that the court will dismiss. This will remove your criminal convictions from public records so that potential employers and landlords can’t see them.
