Glendale Expungement Attorney
Interested in Sealing or Clearing your Criminal Record?
Expungements are an important part of Attorney Jonathan C. Rosen’s criminal defense practice. If you have previously been arrested, charge with a crime, or convicted of a crime, an expungement can help put the past behind you so you are free to move forward with a fresh start in life.
What is Expungement?
Expungement is the process of setting aside a previous arrest, criminal charge, or conviction and removing it from a person’s criminal record. After an expungement, you can legally deny having a criminal record, which is very beneficial for anyone applying for a new job, a loan, or anything else that requires disclosure of your criminal history. Furthermore, once your record has been expunged, your offense will no longer be viewable in the public record.
It is important to remember that expungement does not destroy your criminal record. Rather, your arrest, charges, or conviction will be set aside and dismissed, essentially removing it from the public record. However, if you are charged with another crime in the future, the district attorney can still take your criminal history into consideration.
