I have my first DUI case as a crime on my record in spam of 30 years and since 3 years in US. Is it possible to expunge DUI case of my record for H1 visa and from immigrations
Expungement of any conviction has no immigration consequences. However, a DUI will not prevent you from obtaining H-1B status or a green card.

DUIs are notoriously difficult to Expunge, primarily because they are driving related criminal offenses. I do not believe that a DUI disqualifies you from receiving an H1 Visa, but check with an immigration attorney.

Expunging a DUI conviction will not prevent immigration from finding out about the conviction. As part of the immigration process, you will need to submit to fingerprinting, which will be crossed checked against the government database to find all criminal convictions.
If it is a simple DUI, that should not affect your H1 visa. However, I recommend that you speak to an attorney to discuss the specific facts of your case, so that you can get a informed response.
