Clearing your record

Why Work With An Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney to Clear Your Record?

Even though your jail time is over, your probation is finished and the fines are paid, you still have a record that could hold you back from pursuing higher education, finding a job, renting an apartment, buying a home and doing other things that require a squeaky clean police record.

Whenever you are filling out a application you’ll be limited in your options when you have to disclose your history. However, if you’re able to get your records expunged you’ll no longer have to worry about getting passed over for the job or the house of your dreams because of a bad decision that you made years ago.

You may be able to have your criminal records sealed and expunged so that in the future you can truthfully answer that you don’t have any records. Additionally, this will have a positive impact on your reputation since, when you are able to land a job, your employer will have preconceived notions about you due to your criminal record.

How An Orange County Attorney Can Help Clear Your Record

In addition to the thousands of cases we’ve had dismissed, we’ve been able to help people reduce their felony charges to misdemeanors. Finally we can get arrest records sealed so that no one will ever know about it.

There are numerous laws that dictate which types of crimes and convictions are eligible to expunge. Also your history will have an impact on whether or not you can get your records sealed or expunged. Remember, there are some offenses, the most violent ones, that are not eligible and may prevent you from getting other offenses, that are eligible, expunged.
