What is Expungement?
Expungement is a legal process by which a conviction or plea of either Guilty or No Contest in a criminal case is set aside and the case is dismissed. It relieves the defendant of certain penalties and disabilities that result from a criminal action, such as having to divulge your criminal record on employment applications or in other similar situations.

Do I Qualify for Expungement?
Commonly, expungement can be granted for drug crimes,
white collar crimes, certain
felony offenses and many others if you are qualified, and this will be adjudicated on an individual basis. Those convicted of serious
sex crimes involving children will not be allowed to expunge their records. In order to be eligible, you cannot currently be on probation or serving a sentence for any criminal offense and you cannot, as well, be currently charged with any crime. If you were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, a key part of eligibility will be the fact of having successfully completed your probation. Even if you violated the terms of your probation, our firm can in some instances still have the court agree to expunge your records.
Once we have verified your eligibility, we gather the necessary information so that your petition to the court is correctly prepared and filed. Finally, we represent you at your expungement hearing towards the goal of giving you the fresh start you need.
A seasoned Los Angeles criminal defense attorney from Diamond & Associates can help you to understand the process of expungement, what the eligibility requirements are and can work to see that your expungement is carried out correctly.
