A criminal record expungement attorney is basically a lawyer whose practice focuses on cleaning up conviction and arrest records. This allows an individual who has a criminal record to have their history cleared to the extent allowed by law.
In other words, expungement is actually a process of “reformatting” your criminal record. Most US states have their own definition of the expungement law, but the following are some of important criteria in California that would help you determine whether your criminal record is eligible for expungement or not.
Requirements for Expungement
In general, all misdemeanors can be expunged, along with most felonies. Filing for expungement would only be possible once the convicted person has successfully completed probation with compliance to every aspect of the judge’s imposed sentence.
