Attorney Samuel Geller is an experienced expungement expert ready to help you clean your criminal record. An expungement is the removal of a specific record from both court and FBI records. Individuals who have pled not guilty to a crime and who were not sentenced may request the courts to expunge the record under Penal Code Section 1203.4. Expungement is available for those who have been charged with any type of crime, whether a felony or a misdemeanor.

Expungement can be a bit complicated, however, making it imperative that an experienced attorney handle the process. You’ll need to file a petition for your case to be heard in court. The case must be heard by a judge who will grant or deny the record expungement.

Mr. Geller will have no problem handling your case and seeing that the complicated process of expungement is much easier, with a gratifying conclusion at the end of the day.

Expungement of your record is essential in San Francisco and beyond if you do not want life as you know it shattered and in turmoil for many years to come. Your criminal record is public information, meaning anyone who desires to see the record can easily access it. Many criminal charges appearing on your record, even those you haven’t been convicted of, affect your ability to obtain employment and housing and more.

California Penal Code Section 1203.4 provides in part:

“Petitioner shall be permitted by the court to withdraw his or her plea of guilty or plea of nolo contendere and enter a plea of not guilty; or, if he or she has been convicted after a plea of not guilty, the court shall set aside the verdict of guilty; and, in either case, the court shall thereupon dismiss the accusations or information against the defendant and except as noted below, he or she shall thereafter be released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the offense of which he or she has been convicted.”
