It May Be Possible To Expunge Your Criminal Record
As new laws are created and amended, you may find that some criminal charges and convictions have been significantly changed. For example, now that recreational use of marijuana is legal in California, many charges associated with it have been relaxed or eliminated.
Many crimes that used to be felonies are now misdemeanors in California, and you may be eligible for retroactive relief. These crimes include property offenses, some forms of burglary, and some drug crimes.
If you have a criminal record, it likely has drastically inhibited your ability to accomplish things like establish a stable career or buy and own firearms. With these convictions on your record, your livelihood, financial stability and reputation may be compromised.
