Expungement of Prior Convictions Lawyer in Fullerton

In California, expungement allows those who have been given deferred adjudication for minor crimes to clear their criminal record. California Penal Code 1203.4 and 1203.4a permit most people convicted of California crimes to have their convictions dismissed after—sometimes long after—their conviction or guilty plea. Unlike adult court, when a minor is booked in juvenile hall, bail is not issued. Rather on the minor’s first court date, called a detention hearing, a referee or judge will have input from the juvenile probation department, as well as from the juvenile deputy district and juvenile defense attorney, on whether or not to detain the minor pending adjudication. Adjudication is when a juvenile judge sets the case for trial, and unlike an adult court, your child is not entitled to a jury trial.
Sometimes it is hard to find records of your former convictions. In many cases, court records after 10 years have been destroyed. See Government Code section 68152. Therefore, your California expungement attorney may first seek an abstract of your criminal record from the California Department of Justice to make sure all your prior acts get dismissed. Cleaning up a criminal history can be complicated. If you are not sure whether your record qualifies for expungement in California or for advice about your personal situation you should contact the qualified criminal Law Office of Ray Dinari. A good lawyer can guide you each step of the way.

After my 2nd DUI in Orange Co., I was unsure of what to do and what was going to happen to me. All I knew is that I needed to find an expert in the field and get great legal advice and guidance. I spoke with a few firms and found that they were not a good fit for me or my case. As luck would have it, the next firm I spoke with (Law office of Ray Dinari), was beyond professional and a perfect fit for my case. Ray Dinari, is a consummate professional with a wealth of expertise in Law and DUI Defense cases. He was able to encourage the court to permit me the help that I needed. It wasn’t jail, It was rehab. I and my family thank Ray for all he has done to provide the proper tools that is now leading me down success road. For that I’m forever thankful and full of gratitude.
