Domestic Violence Expungement in San Jose

Need a Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer to Help Clear Your Name?

If you were convicted of domestic violence and are interested in clearing your criminal record to get a fresh start, a defense attorney at our law firm can help. We handle domestic violence expungement for clients throughout this area and can conduct an initial assessment of your case to determine whether you may qualify.

Domestic violence may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the case, and either of these types of convictions may be cleared from your record – as long as you did not serve prison time. You may be able to file a petition to withdraw your “guilty” or “no contest” plea or may have a “guilty” verdict set aside.

Once a conviction is successfully expunged from your record, potential employers can no longer use it against you in determining whether to hire you. You must meet certain qualifications, however, and as such it is important to talk to a lawyer who understands this process and can not only help you with your petition but who can guide you through to a swift and positive result.

Clear a Domestic Violence Conviction from Your Criminal Record

How will expungement affect a domestic violence conviction? Though the record may be cleared, this does not mean that it is completely destroyed. It will be unavailable for the public to view, but government agencies may still consider an expunged domestic violence conviction when determining whether to hire an applicant. A previous conviction, even when expunged, will also count toward any new domestic violence offense and may affect sentencing.
