How to Expunge Records in Alameda County Courts
Alameda County is the heart of the "Silicon Valley" and home to many large tech companies. Hiring is very competitive, and jobs carry high salaries. To have every competitive edge in the hiring process, expungement of your record is very important.
Misdemeanor and felony convictions can usually be expunged. Once relief has been granted, you can honestly answer "no" to a question regarding criminal convictions in many circumstances. Under certain circumstances, a felony conviction can be reduced to a misdemeanor. Contrary to popular belief, records of criminal convictions in are not expunged or cleared automatically with the passage of time, but require the filing and granting of a Petition for relief in Court.
All expungement cases in Alameda County are now handled in the Wiley Manuel Courthouse in Oakland. A court hearing is usually set, although you need not attend- we handle it for you. The procedure usually takes 8-12 weeks. The Courts here give a lot of deference to the probation officer's report, so getting the proper information in the original filing package is very important.
All legal work is done by an Attorney with 25 + years legal experience and more than 4000 successful expungement cases.
Alameda County Courts are fairly generous about granting expungement petitions, and are reasonably well informed on the law, and the rights of petitioners.
