California Expungement Lawyer

An expungement is the legal process of dismissing a case that has resulted from a guilty plea. The typical penalties will still take place, such as arrest, prosecution, and a conviction record. The court file, however, will reflect the entering of a plea of not guilty and case dismissal. Your criminal record is not destroyed, but FBI files and the California Department of Justice can have a notation that the case was dismissed and that you were found not guilty. At Rodriguez Lewis & Kahn, our criminal defense attorneys have helped numerous clients through the expungement process when they qualified.

We can help have your convictions removed by providing direction and insight as to the process. An expungement allows you to have the freedom to tell your future employer that you have never been convicted of a crime, which can significantly improve your chances of obtaining a job. Under an expungement, you will not be allowed to possess a firearm and the conviction can still be used to enhance future penalties if you are charged with another crime. If a sex crime has been committed, you may still be required to register as a sex offender. This process updates a case to show that it has been dismissed, but does not remove all records.
