It's too late to complain about the lawyer you had or the deal you took.
Yes, you can apply for early termination of probation. You must file a petition to do so. Typically with no violations, you can make the request to terminate after half the probation time frame.
California does not have a true "expungement" statute. What we do have is a dismissal under Penal Code 1203.4. If granted, it doesn't wipe the case off your record, but it adds a notation that the case was dismissed. That allows you to tell most employers that you have not been convicted of the crime, but it remains on your record and still counts as a prior conviction.See question

You're asking for a "pro bono" attorney. That is often viewed as asking for a free attorney or one that is willing to take a case on for free. Not entirely correct. An attorney may take on a case pro bono publico - "for the public good". That means they are in fact willing to work for free on a matter that has great social implication or that has far-reaching implications. Not many attorneys can take on something as complex and time consuming as this for free. The criminal system is designed to protect those that cannot afford an attorney at any stage with appointed counsel (who isn't working for free either, they're just paid by the government and not the individual client).
So - is there something compelling where you think an attorney would take it on without pay because of great social issues involved in the case? Or are you just asking for an attorney to work for free?See question

You need a good criminal defense attorney. I'd strongly suggest you find someone who focuses on criminal law and who routinely practices in the court where this case will be heard. Yes, you may well have a viable self defense claim. Speak IN CONFIDENCE with your lawyer.See question
I am on an informal probation and need to complete a 52 week program. Before my case, my family and I were set to move from CA to NV at the end of January next year. Am I able to do part of my program in California for the remainder of our time he...
I assume this is a 52 week domestic violence program. It is a mandatory term of probation and typically mist be done in person. If there is an equivalent program where you're headed, and as long as the court allows the modification, you may be able to move and still complete your obligations.
Do not just move and assume it is okay. You will need to clear this through the judge. Talk to your lawyer about finding a program and getting your case back in court for your request.
It goes without saying that your odds of success go way up if you're otherwise doing well on probation.See question

Maybe. It depends on what your prior(s) are for, what your entire record looks like and what your attorney can do for you.

My girlfriend was arrested 09/02/16 and had a warrant for missing her court on 8/31/16. The same day she was arrested she went to court and was sentenced with 150 days in county jail, she has a projected release date of 11/10/16. I believe she was...
The 11/10 day appears to be accurate. She will do half of the 150. She may get out earlier for overcrowding, but assume the worst and hope for the best.See question

It shouldn't, but what kind of case? A traffic ticket? A misdemeanor? Felony?See question

You should at least be sitting down with a good local criminal defense attorney to discuss things more thoroughly before walking into a trap. You could face allegations of forgery, tax evasion or other ugliness.See question
Would it be possible to meet with an acquaintance on a weekend, at a location that is not on route between home and work, driving there on a restricted license in California? The idea would be to meet for the purpose of a business discussion, e...
You're tempting fate.
If you get stopped, you better be able to prove you were driving within the restriction and not outside it. If you're driving outside the restriction, it's treated as driving on a suspended license - a misdemeanor carrying potential jail time, fines of a thousand or more dollars and a violation of your underlying probation. If the suspension is because of a DUI as I suspect, you're looking at mandatory jail time and an ignition interlock device if you don't have one already.See question
1.5 years ago i was arrested for a 273(a)b. Charges were never filed. The charge was for being intoxicated while home with my kids there (7, 12 ages). The kids told the officers they were scared so they called the ex who called the cops. There was...
That code section also covers child endangerment. Being so intoxicsted that you couldn't care for your children - to the point where they were scared enough to call for help... I think you'll face an uphill battle on a factual innocence petition. Get s copy of the police report and have a good local lawyer review it. Do NOT hire an attorney who makes this situation sound like a piece of cake to get granted. You want an honest lawyer who isn't out just to get paid and file something they know have no shot at winning. In fact - see several lawyers to get a feel for your chances.See question
