Requirements for Expungement in San Jose, CA

San Francisco Record Sealing Attorney

San Francisco Criminal Expungement Lawyer

At the law offices of Jachimowicz Law Group, we strongly believe that a crime should not affect a person's entire life. We help our clients secure a successful future by expunging misdemeanor convictions from their criminal record.

Expungements are possible if:

  • The crime was a misdemeanor. Most but not all felonies can be expunged.
  • The offender completed all necessary disciplinary actions, including attending any classes or rehabilitation groups required by the court.
  • The person completed probation successfully (on good behavior).

Even if you do not meet all of these requirements, there may still be a way to expunge your criminal record. Our experienced California criminal expungement lawyers understand the specifics of the expungement process. They may be able to persuade a judge that he or she should allow your expungement by highlighting your grades, community service or other positive actions since completion of probation.

If you would like to pursue expungement of a criminal record, contact our San Jose and Gilroy law firm or call 408-246-5500.

Advantages of Expungements

Once the expungement is granted, you are officially free from the constraints of your criminal past. Potential employers, credit reporting agencies, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and private investigators will not be able to find the crime on your record. If somehow they do, they cannot legally use it against you.

Government agencies such as the police or state licensing agencies, however, can be an exception to this rule.
