What is Expungement?

To expunge something is to remove or erase it completely. The term “expungement” refers to a court process that destroys or seals a criminal conviction from federal and state records. In juvenile court cases, this is commonly seen. It also applies to adults who want a clean record. If granted by a court, an expungement order will require the court to consider any criminal conviction as if it never happened. This allows defendants to request that the court seal their criminal record so that it will no longer be visible or accessible via public records.

In order to get a conviction expunged from one’s record, it must be ordered by the judge who presided over the original trial. Expungements and pardons are two distinct legal remedies that can be used to clear an individual’s criminal record. While both can be used to remove the conviction from an individual’s record, they differ in how they are granted and their legal effects. Pardons are granted by public officials, such as state governors or the President, and do not require the conviction to be removed from an individual’s criminal record. Instead, they are a form of forgiveness, indicating that the individual has been rehabilitated and is no longer considered a threat to society.

Pardons do not erase the conviction, but they may help to mitigate the consequences of having a criminal record, such as difficulty finding employment or housing. On the other hand, expungements are a legal process that actually removes the conviction from an individual’s criminal record. In order to qualify for an expungement, the individual must typically meet certain eligibility requirements, such as completing their sentence and demonstrating that they have been rehabilitated. Expungements are intended to clear an individual’s record and allow them to move on with their lives without the burden of a criminal conviction.

It is crucial to hire an attorney who has experience in this field, as there are a variety of laws that dictate the types of charges that are eligible for expungement and who can have these convictions removed from their record. Since it is vital to ensure one’s livelihood by maintaining a clean record, the Los Angeles expungement lawyer at Tabibnia Law Firm focus on clients’ interests and seek solutions that provide for the best future.

Who Is Eligible for Expungement in California?

In the state of California, not everyone who has been convicted of a crime is eligible for expungement. According to the California penal code, expungement is only an option for defendants in non-incarceration cases who have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor and successfully completed all the requirements of their probation.
There are certain circumstances in which an individual may not be eligible for expungement, including:

  • Convictions for serious sex offenses against minors
  • Individuals who have served time in state prison, whether as part of their original sentence or due to violating probation.
  • Individuals currently serving time for another crime.
  • Individuals currently on probation for any crime.
  • Individuals currently charged with a crime.

It is important to note that these are general guidelines and eligibility for expungement may depend on the specific details of an individual’s case. It is always advisable to consult with a qualified attorney to determine if you are eligible for expungement.

The cost of hiring a lawyer for expungement in Los Angeles will depend on a variety of factors, including the complexity of your case, the lawyer’s experience and reputation, and the amount of time and resources that will be required to handle your case.

Does an Expungement Mean That All Records Will Be Erased and Destroyed?

It is important to note that an expungement does not necessarily mean that all records will be erased and destroyed. In most cases, an expungement only applies to certain types of criminal records, such as arrest records or court records. It does not typically apply to records maintained by other agencies, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or the Department of Justice (DOJ). Additionally, an expungement does not necessarily erase the conviction entirely. While an expungement can help to remove the stigma of a criminal record and can make it easier for a person to find employment, housing, and other opportunities, it does not necessarily mean that the expunged conviction will not be used against a person in certain circumstances. For example, in some cases, an expunged conviction may still be used for sentencing purposes in the event of a future conviction. If you have any questions or concerns about expungement, you should contact an experienced attorney who can provide guidance and advice.

Important Information to Gather When you Consult an Attorney

There are several important questions to ask when meeting with an attorney to discuss expunging your criminal record. These include:

  • How long will my case take to complete? Each case is unique, so it is important to ask your attorney for an estimated timeline.
  • What are my responsibilities in the expungement process? Your attorney may need you to provide certain information or documentation, so it is important to understand what you will need to do.
  • What will the legal fees be, and what does that include? It is important to know the cost of your attorney’s services and understand exactly what services are included in the fee.
  • Is my case eligible for expungement? It is important to understand the legal basis for expunging your case, so be sure to ask your lawyer about the specific provisions of the law that allow you to petition for expungement.

Asking these questions will help you understand the expungement process, your responsibilities, and the likelihood of success in your case.

    My family had an urgent matter late on a Friday night. Cyrus took our call at 10p, listened to our situation, and answered all our questions. He was thorough in his explanations and addressed our concerns. What we appreciated the most was that he was not pushy and walked us through different approaches for our situation. We have not needed legal representation yet, but with Cyrus’ flexibility, transparency, and straight forwardness, we would highly recommend him.

    Dedicated Attorney I have had the privilege of knowing attorney Cyrus Tabibnia since 2010, when he used to be a dedicated Board member at our local Bar Association in Los Angeles. He has always been respected by his colleagues for his legal contribution to the members of the Bar Association. While interacting with him professionally, I have found him to be a man of integrity, a competent counsel and zealous advocate for his clients in a variety of civil and criminal cases. Despite his busy professional schedule, Cyrus adheres to his family values and keeps his precious friendship with the rest of us. I am honored to call Cyrus a colleague and endorse him for the services that he offers to the public.

    Several years ago, I was contending with a serious legal issue. Out of the blue, I became aware that a corporation had obtained a large civil money judgment against me, in court, and on a case I was not aware of. When I became apprised of the judgment and the company's efforts to enforce the debt against me, I became angry and concerned. How would this case and judgment affect my financial future? Was there any way to fix this? I approached several other attorneys for assistance, but they all said the same thing: that because the judgment was over a year old (almost 2 years old, actually) it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove the judgment and to re-open the case. Given what other attorneys had told me about my case, I was not hopeful. But I decided to turn to and hire the Tabibnia Law Firm because I was aware of their strong reputation in both civil law matters and criminal defense cases. Mr. Tabibnia went out of his way to fight for me. To my great surprise, he convinced the court to set aside the judgment against me and to re-open the case. And months after getting the case re-opened, I was astonished when he then got the case completely dismissed! So, I went from having a large money judgment against me to getting the judgment removed and case dismissed in a matter of months. Throughout the process, I found Mr. Tabibnia to be honest, aggressive, competent and extremely fair with his fees. Most importantly, he kept me informed throughout the case. I cannot recommend the Tabibnia Law Firm highly enough.
