Case Dismissal Attorneys Serving Santa Clara County
A criminal record can affect your ability to get a job and may affect future criminal convictions. Under certain circumstances, the courts will allow for expungement (dismissal) of a record or record sealing (records can still be viewed by the court or law enforcement). These court procedures can help protect individuals from job ineligibility and other harmful effects of a criminal record. If you have been charged with a crime and are seeking to have your record dismissed, our attorneys at Jachimowicz Law Group can explain your options for record expungement and record sealing.
Expungement and reduction of felonies to misdemeanors are court processes that help individuals protect their rights and their future. For more information about record sealing or expungement, contact us today for a free consultation.
A DUI on your record could prevent you from getting hired for a job. Like other crimes, a DUI is a serious offense that can lead to fines, jail time and a record that will affect your life. If you have had DUI charges or are seeking to remove or dismiss records of a DUI charge, our attorneys can help you understand your options. We have experience with expungement and record dismissal procedures, and we will take every step necessary to protect your rights.
If you are seeking to clear a criminal charge or protect your record, our attorneys can assist you with any of the following:
- We may be able to negotiate a dismissal after a successful probation period or reduce your charge to a misdemeanor, which may not have to be reported on job applications.
- We can seek to have your records dismissed. This will not eliminate the record, but it will limit access to it. You will not be able to hide the record from a government agency for professional licensing or employment purposes, but dismissal of the charges can help a job search.
- If you are an immigrant, we may be able to reduce your charge to a misdemeanor, which will help in avoiding deportation, loss or delay in obtaining residence, or denial of reentry.
