A Los Angeles Expungement Can Be a Game Changer

Posted by Jason Beahm | Dec 04, 2018 | 0 Comments

More of our clients than ever are seeking a Los Angeles expungement. Of the eight million Californians living with an old criminal conviction, their prior conviction has a long lasting impact.

Technically, in California the processes informally known as expungement is called a “petition for dismissal,” (it is also known as a 1203.4 motion.)

Through a Los Angeles expungement, we can help you put your past behind you and turn your life around. Once granted, the court will vacate your conviction and dismiss the case. That means: you can honestly say that you have never been convicted in Los Angeles. The conviction is gone–for most purposes, it's as if it never happened. It may no longer be used against you in most hiring decisions, opening doors to all kinds of new job possibilities in Los Angles and beyond.

There is no doubt about it: a clean record can be a game changer for business, school, travel and more.

Right now, there are over 2 million Californian who are eligible to clear their records, and more of them are located in Los Angles County than anywhere else in the state. We pleased to report that we are filing Los Angeles expungements around the clock, and getting them granted in record speed.

In fact:  According to Californians for Safety and Justice, among those in Los Angeles with a conviction:

  • 5 in 10 (46%) have difficulty finding a job
  • 5 in 10 (45%) struggle to pay fines and fees
  • 4 in 10 (40%) have trouble sleeping or other health issues
  • 4 in 10 (35%) have difficulty obtaining occupational licenses
  • 2 in 10 (24%) have difficulty finding housing

Our clients have also been able to use the expungement process in order to get approved for travel into Canada, as well as TSA Precheck and Global Entry.
