Torrance, Long Beach and Airport Court Expugement Law
Contrary to popular belief, records of criminal convictions in Long Beach, Airport and Torrance Courts 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.
All legal work is done by an Attorney with 20 + years legal experience and more than 2000 successful expungement cases.
We have successfully expunged a large number of criminal records in Torrance, Airport and Long Beach Criminal Courts. 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 (Los Angeles) with limited resources dedicated to expungement processing.
Our fees are reasonable, and include the petition, court hearings, filing fees and research. You will not need to appear in Court.
South Bay Courts are very 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 Court systems.

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.
