Expungement Lawyer PC 1203.4

Dismiss Charges – Expungement

When it comes to the future of our clients, an Expungement is an important part of the rebuilding process.  Many believe that a “fresh start” begins with a “clear record”.  Let us look into the possibility of expunging those old criminal convictions that remain on your record.  Since it’s not always possible to get a criminal conviction dismissed, we’ll review each prior individually to determine whether or not an Expungement is possible.  If you were convicted by a judge or jury; or even if you entered into a plea bargain, you need an attorney who will look out for your future and fight to clear the convictions from your record so that you can get your life back to normal as soon as possible.

To many people, clearing their record is extremely important, especially when it comes to employment or planning a career.  After a successful expungement, the entry on your record will show a dismissal of the case and charges filed against you.

Penal Code Section 1203.4(a)(1) (1203.4 PC)

1203.4.  (a) (1) In any case in which a defendant has fulfilled the conditions of probation for the entire period of probation, or has been discharged prior to the termination of the period of probation, or in any other case in which a court, in its discretion and the interests of justice, determines that a defendant should be granted the relief available under this section, the defendant shall, at any time after the termination of the period of probation, if he or she is not then serving a sentence for any offense, on probation for any offense, or charged with the commission of any offense, be permitted by the court to withdraw his or her plea of guilty or plea of nolo contendere and enter a plea of not guilty; or, if he or she has been convicted after a plea of not guilty, the court shall set aside the verdict of guilty; and, in either case, the court shall thereupon dismiss the accusations or information against the defendant and except as noted below, he or she shall thereafter be released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the offense of which he or she has been convicted, except as provided in Section 13555 of the Vehicle Code. The probationer shall be informed, in his or her probation papers, of this right and privilege and his or her right, if any, to petition for a certificate of rehabilitation and pardon. The probationer may make the application and change of plea in person or by attorney, or by the probation officer authorized in writing. However, in any subsequent prosecution of the defendant for any other offense, the prior conviction may be pleaded and proved and shall have the same effect as if probation had not been granted or the accusation or information dismissed. The order shall state, and the probationer shall be informed, that the order does not relieve him or her of the obligation to disclose the conviction in response to any direct question contained in any questionnaire or application for public office, for licensure by any state or local agency, or for contracting with the California State Lottery Commission.

Vehicle Code Section 13555

A termination of probation and dismissal of charges pursuant to Section 1203.4 or a dismissal of charges pursuant to Section 1203.4 (a) of the Penal Code does not affect any revocation or suspension of the privilege of the person convicted to drive a motor vehicle under this chapter. Such person’s prior conviction shall be considered a conviction for the purpose of revoking or suspending or otherwise limiting such privilege on the ground of two or more convictions.

Nolo Contendere

The defendant who pleads nolo contendere submits for a Judgment fixing a fine or sentence the same as if he or she had pleaded guilty. The difference is that a plea of nolo contendere cannot later be used to prove wrongdoing in a civil suit for monetary damages, but a plea of guilty can. Nolo contendere is especially popular in antitrust actions, such as price-fixing cases, where it is very likely that civil actions for treble damages will be started after the defendant has been successfully prosecuted.

NOTE**     A plea of nolo contendere may be entered only with the permission of the court, and the court generally will accept it only after weighing its effect on the parties, the public, and the administration of justice.

CLEAN UP YOUR RECORD 1203.4(a)(b)

The MyRIghtsLawGroup is committed to helping individuals who were convicted of a crime in the past but have completed all the terms and conditions ordered by the court and are now ready to start clean, which includes a clearing up any criminal convictions on their record.  Many people have the misconception that an expungement removes criminal convictions from their record, it doesn’t hide the fact that you were charged in a crime, it does change the outcome of that case to one that shows the matter, “Dismissed” and that could mean the difference between being offered a job and not being passed up for a position.

If you’ve successfully completed all the terms and conditions required of you, then now may be the time to clear your name and record, once and for all.  Start re-building your life and future, call the MyRIghtsLawGroup and talk with an attorney today.

Dan P.
Thank you Kirk. You guys are top notch. Kept me informed on everything that was going on with my case and I didn’t have to show up in court once. Got my case dismissed, now I can move on. I would recommend this law firm to anyone that wants a fair shake.
James
I had a difficult case that I was trying to fight from outside the state it was turned down twice. Once by the DA, and the second time by the judge, they continued to fight for me, and got the results I was looking for. They really do care about their clients and will not stop fighting till they get you the results you want.
Adrian A.
I couldn’t be happier with the service we received. From the very beginning I could tell that these lawyers knew a lot about DUI cases and throughout our court days they went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared for whatever might come our way. They definitely prepare you for the worst but get you the best. They covered every single base and we got an amazing outcome. I would recommend them any day.
Client
I want to thank Bobby, Kirk, and the entire staff. They recalled my warrant and got my case dismissed in no time. They answered my concerns and took me step by step in the process. I didn’t even have to appear in court. They represented me and took care of my case all the way. Thank you!!!
Suriel A.

Bachir
Good attorneys are hard to find! Bobby Shamuilian actually represented me with my best interest at heart. He gave it his all and because of that my case is being dismissed today. This firm is most definitely the best one to have if you need a criminal attorney. God forbid I ever need a criminal defense attorney, I would not even consider anyone else to represent me. Absolutely an amazing attorney!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Christine
I had the pleasure of working with Kirk, and his office regarding my DUI case. I was originally charged with 2 felony counts (vehicle codes 23153A & 23153B). Kirk’s office was very professional and was able to negotiate with the District Attorney get my conviction reduced to a 1 count misdemeanor. Throughout the whole ordeal of two court dates, he and staff was available for any of my questions and concerns.
Tobias
Everyone in the office was helpful and professional. There was never a time when I thought they weren’t going to be there when we needed them. Their reputation and professionalism was the primary factor for using this law firm. Boy, were we impressed with all of the work they put into our case. Thank you to everyone in the office for always making us feel like we were your only clients!
Neckole S.
I found myself facing a DUI and scared to death. From the very start of the initial consultation, Attorneys Kirk Tarman and Bobby Shamuilian put me at ease. They handled my DMV Hearing and the court proceeding and truly fought for me. They were always attentive to my phone calls and emails, keeping me informed. They were able to get me a reduced charged so that I do not have a DUI on my record. I am so thankful to have retained them for my case.
Blaine
Got my case dropped from a felony to 2 misdemeanors to having everything dismissed. Justice has been served, nothing more I could ask for! Many thanks Patty, Kirk and Bobby!
