For as long as you have a criminal record, it can potentially prevent you from finding a good job, renting a decent place, or owning a home. Does a crime that you committed a long time ago have to follow you forever? In certain circumstances, a criminal record can be partially or fully sealed or destroyed. For a drug crime or a juvenile offense, there is a much better chance that you can break away from your past. One of our Long Beach criminal defense attorneys can help you determine whether this is possible for you. They can then provide you with the legal expertise you need to help you achieve this expungement. If you get your records expunged, you can then honestly answer "no" to the question, "Have you ever been convicted of a crime?"
There are certain factors that would make someone eligible for expungement. One is that enough time has passed since the date of conviction. You must also have served your sentence and not violated probation. There also cannot have been any repeat convictions, or convictions of any other crime. If an offense from the past is still haunting you, it does not have to any longer. You deserve to move forward with life. With over five decades of experience, the
Law Offices of Damone & Schroeder can provide the skill to help you to leave your past behind for good. For more information,
