Southern California Expungement Attorney
Protect Your Reputation
To have a case “expunged” means to have it removed from your criminal record. The fact that you have a conviction for a crime, no matter how large or small, may often affect your life years from now. This can be a black mark on your reputation and bar you from the residence, the occupation, or the future you want for yourself or your family.
At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, we understand that even a brief lapse in judgment can result in a criminal conviction and forever affect the trajectory of an individual’s life. Mr. Geller is a former prosecutor who believes that criminal defendants who have paid their debt society deserve to move with their lives free of stigma. Our firm can assist some of the clients with sealing their record or expunging it, giving them the legal authority to deny their prior charge.
If you have a criminal record you believe is eligible for expungement, we can assist you. Call our Southern California expungement lawyer at (626) 714-3112 today.
Benefits of Expungement
Having a criminal record can inhibit your life in a number of ways. Any circumstance in which you have to demonstrate your trustworthiness and/or integrity can be challenging when you have to disclose that you were once convicted for breaking the law.
A prior criminal charge can complicate:
- Acquiring employment
- Enrolling the military
- Applying for housing
- Securing certain professional licenses
- Petitioning for immigrant visas
