Have a past indiscretion that keeps coming back to haunt you
whenever you are asked to disclose your history? Does a
criminal conviction come up when someone searches you
online? In today's tough job market it is more important than
ever to have a clean record. Employers will undoubtedly
conduct an extensive background check on all applicants.
We expunge Long Beach Criminal cases under PC 1203.4.
Your case can be dismissed as long as you have not have
violated the terms of their probation in any way, for example
the person seeking the Long Beach expungement must not
have sustained any new conviction or have been arrested for
any new offense while on probation.
All crimes can be expunged, with the exception of those
crimes excluded by statute and commonly barred sex
offenses listed under 290 of the Penal Code such as child
molestation. Notably, the California Appellate Court ruled in
December of 2006 that crimes of "attempt" such as attempted

proper legal form and must be served on the appropriate
agencies in order to be reviewed by the Judge. A local Long
Beach Lawyer should be retained to be sure the petition for
expungement is filed correctly. In many cases a judge will
reject an otherwise meritorious petition because the form was
not completed properly or some technical rule was not
Once the Court petition for an expungement has been granted
by the Court, the person can, in most cases, state that he or
she has not been convicted of a crime for purposes of private
employment. In effect the case will have been dismissed.
For more information, please refer to Penal Code 1203.4. In
addition to expungements, our attorneys can file other
motions to seal and destroy arrest records and remove
convictions for all juvenile criminal matters in Long Beach.
Not all lawyers have the same success rate as others, paying
too little to a lawyer for an expungement can result in an
ineffective removal of the criminal charge.
