Trying to make a fresh start, to obtain a job, get professional licensure or return to school, can be severely hampered if you have a prior criminal record. And no matter whether the conviction was for a minor offense like shoplifting, or for something more serious, while you have turned the corner and put this particular mistake behind you, a misstep of the past may still come back to haunt you.

Our Firm’s Approach
Our approach to your situation really depends on you and the circumstances surrounding your prior criminal record. If the legal criteria are met, we will make a formal motion to the court to have the record expunged. Often all it takes on our clients’ part is to have a phone conversation with either Steven or Chris Harmon to provide information. From that point, our firm can handle everything — you needn’t appear in court nor take any further action to follow up. We have even handled expungements for out-of-state clients without their ever having to travel to California.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of expunging your record so that you may take advantage of the career and educational options open to you, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney, Christopher Harmon. Contact us today to arrange a free initial consultation.
