What Does Expungement Do?

Expunging a criminal record means erasing it so that it is as if it never happened. An expunged charge or conviction will not show up on a background check ever again.

Under California law, expungement can be sought for various items on your criminal record, including:

  • Arrests that did not lead to charges
  • Charges that were dismissed or resulted in a “not guilty” verdict
  • Certain misdemeanor and felony convictions

Only convictions for nonviolent, nonsexual and nonserious criminal offenses are typically eligible for expungement. The Law Office of Sean M. Hobson will meticulously review your record and provide honest advice about your likelihood of success. The firm will handle all necessary paperwork and court filings on your behalf with a commitment to efficiency and attention to detail.
