DUI Expungement in California- Law Overview and Summary:

Posted by Thomas "Doug" Allen | Jul 29, 2014 | 0 Comments

(See our YouTube Video HERE Visit our WEBSITE)

DUI convictions are one of the most common criminal offenses in California. Violation of 23152 or 23153 of the California Vehicle Code can result in conviction, fine, alcohol school and custody time.  Such a conviction can have long lasting repercussions in employment, and adversely impact quality of life. A DUI expungement helps mitigate this mistake.

The legal standard for California DUI Expungement cases is higher than other expungements due to a rather recent change in the Expungement law.

Experienced legal counsel greatly increases the success rate in these matters as the court must make a finding that the expungement is in 'the interest of justice'. In many cases, a Felony DUI can be reduced to a misdemeanor and then expunged.

Potential clients get a free telephone consultation with an Attorney with hundreds of DUI defense cases, including many jury trials. Our fees are reasonable, competitive, and include all legal work, court costs and court appearances. We DO NOT charge more for a California DUI expungement case, unlike many lawyers.

We have successfully expunged hundreds of DUI records all over the State of California. Please be aware that while all DUI cases can not be expunged most can be; there are some limits on the relief an expungement can grant; such as- DMV does not remove their record of the case after an expungement is granted in the criminal Court.

California DUI records are not expunged automatically with the passage of time, but require the filing and granting of a Petition for relief in Court.
