California Expungement

Attorney Scott Dicus, founder of, is an experienced California expungement lawyer with a Five-Star Client Rating on TrustPilot and Yelp. If you were convicted of a felony, misdemeanor, DUI or infraction in California and would like to move on with your life, it is important that you expunge your California record. Obtaining an expungement in California can be tricky, though the pay off in the end is great. An experienced California Expungement Attorney should have no problem handling your case, even if you no longer reside in California.

Once granted, an expungement essentially changes the disposition of the case to reflect a dismissal under Penal Code 1203.4. Meaning quite literally that the court file, the California Department of Justice, and the FBI update their files to reflect that a plea of not guilty has been entered and that the case has been ordered dismissed and set aside by the court.

Practically speaking, what does a California Expungement actually do?

Once you have your California criminal record expunged, you can truthfully and lawfully tell most potential employers that you have NEVER been convicted of a crime. It’s that simple. Because of California disclosure laws, once expunged, it should no longer show up on criminal background checks.

In California, one is entitled to an expungement of their criminal records once their probation period and the requirements of the probation have been completed.
