to help me clear my record from 2007. It's a misdemeanor case didn't serve time in prison and I have paid my fine. How much would a lawyer cost for this kind of service?
Technically we are not allowed to use AVVO to solicit business or quote fees. Misdemeanors can be expunged and your record of conviction would be not reportable by filing a motion pursuant to California Penal Code 1203.4. Any attorney can do this for you and the cost should not be excessive. Call around many of us on AVVO offer free consults.See question
