Expungements

> Practice Areas > Criminal Law > Expungements

An expungement allows you to be released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from your prior criminal offenses. A primary reason to get your criminal charges expunged is for employment opportunities. While an expungement does not completely erase your convictions as if the conviction had never occurred, it does change a guilty verdict to a dismissal, which allows you to claim “no prior criminal convictions” for certain job applications.

In California, Penal Code §1203.4 states that an individual may be eligible for expungement if he or she has completed probation, paid all fines and restitution, and has not been currently charged with a crime. These eligibility requirements can change depending on whether your conviction was for a misdemeanor or a felony and whether the sentence imposed by the court was probation or a prison sentence. A felony conviction requires additional motions to first reduce that felony to a misdemeanor before any request for expungement can be made.

As former prosecutors, the attorneys at Kundani Chang Khinda & Wilso LLP can help you navigate through the confusing procedures of getting your criminal records expunged based on the specifics of your criminal history. Our attorneys have substantial experience assisting clients in expungement cases, and we can advise you on the best actions to competently and effectively dismiss your criminal convictions.
