Expungement of Criminal Record

When you have been convicted of a crime, that conviction follows you far beyond the end of your sentence. Many employers and professional organizations do criminal background checks on potential new hires and applicants. A criminal conviction can bar you from employment, admittance to schools, professional licensure, and even from some housing. Just because a criminal conviction has made it onto your record, though, doesn’t mean it will always be there. Many convicted criminals in the state of California are eligible for expungement, which wipes their legal records clean.
