Expungement in Orange County California

Santa Ana, Newport Beach (Harbor), Fullerton, and Westminster

All legal work is done by an Attorney team with 25 + years legal experience and more than 4000 successful expungement cases. We have expunged several hundred cases in Orange County California.

Contrary to popular belief, records of criminal convictions are not expunged automatically with the passage of time, but require the filing and granting of a Petition for relief by the Court. Once relief has been granted, you can honestly answer "no" to a question regarding criminal convictions in most circumstances.

We have successfully expunged misdemeanor and felony criminal records in Orange County, CA. The procedure can take from 10-16 weeks depending upon the Court, the complexity of the case, and how old the conviction is. Some delays can occur as this is a large county with limited resources dedicated to expungement processing. Santa Ana Central is by far the busiest Court, and many expungements, including all felony cases, are processed there.

Our fees are reasonable, and include the petition, court hearings, filing fees and research. You will not need to appear in Court.

Judges here are good about granting expungement petitions, including reductions in felony cases. They are well informed on the law and the rights of petitioners. For many years we had a very active criminal defense practice, so are familiar with the Orange County Court system.

We have expunged more than 1,000 records in the Orange County courts.   We have an office in Santa Ana, CA that serves all of Orange County.

Please give us a call to discuss your case and the specific facts of your matter; consultation is free. 800 495-2819.

A California criminal expungement is a legal process that petitions the Court to review a conviction to determine:

  • If probation was successfully completed, or, if no probation was granted, a year has passed since the conviction;
  • That all fines, restitution and reimbursement ordered by the court has been paid;
  • That the petitioner is not now on probation for another offense;
  • That the petitioner has no new pending cases;

The Court then allows the petitioner to withdraw their plea or finding of guilt, enter a new "not guilty" plea, and orders the case dismissed. You will receive a copy of the Court Order when your case is complete.
