SANTA ROSA CRIMINAL defense
some serious stuff.
Not all criminal convictions can be expunged. Most misdemeanors and some felonies qualify. Under California law, felony convictions can be expunged if you were not sent to state prison and successfully completed probation. A judge usually has the discretion to grant or deny a petition for expungement. Expungement proceedings often get complicated and can require multiple court hearings, arguing your case against the district attorney or explaining things to a judge. We will conduct the research, file the necessary motions, respond to written or oral opposition from the district attorney, and send one of our attorneys to court to argue the case in front of the judge.
