Riverside Hall of Justice, Murrieta, Indio, Banning and Blythe Courthouses
All legal work is done by an Attorney with 20 + years legal experience and more than 2500 successful expungement cases. We have extensive experience in Riverside County criminal Court, and have represented hundreds of clients over the past 20+ years in their various Courts.
Contrary to popular belief, records of criminal convictions in Riverside County are not expunged automatically with the passage of time, but require the filing and granting of a Petition for relief by the Court.
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.
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. Riverside Central (Hall of Justice) is by far the busiest Court, and the majority of expungements 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.
Riverside County Courts are fairly good about granting expungement petitions, including reductions in felony cases. The DA's office will often object to the expungement (and often on very weak legal grounds) so legal representation in these courts is vital. For many years we had a very active criminal defense practice and handled a large number of criminal defense cases in Riverside Courts.
Please give us a call to discuss your case; 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.
