Expungement Attorney in Pasadena

Pasadena DUI Lawyer Serving Altadena, Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, San Marino & Sierra Madre

An expungement, also known as a Record of Clearance, is a petition made to the court to have your criminal record sealed in order to remove the conviction from public records.  In order to qualify for an expungement, you must have completed your sentence and probation successfully, as well as met all other terms outlined in your original conviction, such as paying restitution, completing mandatory counseling or classes, or performing community service.  Expunging your record serves to allow you to get a clean slate on your public record, thereafter permitting you to legally complete job applications or loan documents without having to report a prior conviction.  If you would like to improve your record, contacting a Pasadena DUI lawyer from Floyd Skeren & Kelly, LLP can help in this regard.

Another method of seeking an expungement is through a Certificate of Rehabilitation, which is a petition to have your conviction set aside, with the formal appeal going to the Governor for a pardon.

California revised state law in 2008 making it more difficult to obtain an expungement for certain offenses.  Previously, such crimes as DUI, vehicular manslaughter or a hit and run on your record were automatically expunged once your sentence was served and probation completed.  Now a formal court hearing must be requested before a judge in order to obtain a clearance of your record.

Clearing Your Record

Since it is important to be able to start with a clean slate once you have met your obligations to society after completing your sentence and probation, applying for an expungement can help in improving your future prospects.  As skilled and dedicated criminal defense attorneys, we can prepare a thorough petition with appropriate declarations showing your good character, so as to improve your chances of approval by the presiding judge.
