Don’t let old mistakes get in your way on the path towards success. If you have ever been arrested, convicted of a crime, or found delinquent in juvenile court, you must read this!! Having a criminal record serves as an obstacle to future life choices. It may prevent you from getting a JOB, going to COLLEGE, in obtaining professional or commercial LICENSES, it can lower your CREDIT, prevent running for public office and joining the military. In addition, if you’re ever in court again, your criminal record may lead to HARSHER PUNSHMENT if you’re convicted.

It is seldom known to non-lawyers, but in most cases you have the RIGHT to:

  • Have your Felony convictions reduced to misdemeanors
  • Early release from probation
  • Seal your juvenile record
  • Expunge your adult felony and misdemeanor convictions
  • File for a Certificate of Rehabilitation

Regardless of what type of criminal record you have, it is strongly recommended that you clean up your record as much as possible. You need a Los Angeles criminal lawyer. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
