Pasadena Criminal Record Expungement Lawyer

California law allows persons convicted of certain offenses to apply to the court for an order to remove criminal records from the public domain. This process, known as expungement, gives nonviolent offenders an opportunity to apply for jobs without having to acknowledge the fact of a past misdemeanor or felony conviction. Background checks into your criminal record will indicate that the charges were ultimately dismissed.

If you’re interested in seeing whether you’re eligible for expungement of a past criminal conviction for the sake of your future employment prospects, contact Los Angeles expunged criminal records lawyer Mark Khalaf in Pasadena. He can determine whether any or all of your past offenses might be eligible for expungement, and he can initiate the process of making sure that your past record stays out of the public view.

Most nonviolent offenses that resulted in an actual sentence of one year’s incarceration or less are eligible for expungement. To be able to truthfully state on a job or college application that you were never convicted of a felony can give you a good head start toward a productive life.

Pasadena criminal expungement attorney Mark Khalaf will also consider the possibility of obtaining a continuance for dismissal if you have been arrested for drug charges, property crimes, serious traffic offenses, or other nonviolent criminal charges. A continuance for dismissal is arranged with the prosecuting attorney early in a criminal case, and means that no further action will be taken against you in the case if you avoid any additional trouble with the law for a period of months. If you get through the continuance period with a clean record, the original charges will be dismissed, and no conviction will appear on your record.

For additional information about Mark Khalaf’s ability to clean up your criminal record and improve your chances to get ahead in life, contact him at Khalaf & Khalaf in Pasadena.
