We can expunge your Van Nuys Court conviction by withdrawing your plea and having the case dismissed, under most circumstances. The law is somewhat complex in certain areas, but expungement is something that should be done by everyone with even a minor record; non traffic Infraction cases can now be expunged.
Contrary to popular belief, records are not expunged automatically with the passage of time, but require the filing and granting of a Petition for relief in Court.
All legal work is done by an Attorney with 20 + years legal experience and more than 2500 successful expungement cases.
We only do Expungement Law; Record Clearing is our only practice, not a "sideline" to a general law practice. Our fees are competitive and include all Court fees, legal work and service of the petition for expungement on all parties, as well as court appearances. You will not need to appear in Court in most cases. We may not be the 'cheapest' price, but we do things right. Be cautious of non-attorney expungement sites.
Both 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. We have successfully expunged a large number of criminal records in Van Nuys Court. The procedure can take from 8-16 weeks, depending upon the Court, the complexity of the case, and how old the conviction is.

The Van Nuys Court is 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 this Court system. The LA District Attorney prosecutes felonies in this court, and the LA City Attorney prosecutes misdemeanors; we have dealt with both entities both in expungement law and with an active criminal defense practice since the early 1990s.
