Expungement Attorney in Los Angeles
What is expungement and how can it help me?
Expunge means to erase or remove entirely, especially something unwanted. It is sometimes referred to as "cleaning your record." When a person is convicted of a crime, it goes on their record and potential employers and educational institutions can see your history. This can have a very negative effect on your life. There are often actions that you can take to expunge or "clean" your record. Once you have successfully had your record expunged, you do not necessarily have to disclose a prior arrest or conviction on applications for employment, housing or the like. Normally, if a potential employer, school or other institution runs a background check, no record of an expunged conviction or arrest will appear. It is a valuable action worth taking. If you have a prior arrest or conviction on your record and you want it expunged in order to clear your way for future opportunities, you need the services of a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney at Lessem and Newstat.
