In Tough Economic Times, an Expungement of a Criminal Conviction Can Help

By: Wallin & Klarich

Recent unemployment numbers out of California show the unemployment rate at 12 percent. Experts predict that the unemployment rate nationally will top 10 percent. In today’s competitive job market, the difference between being hired or passed over for a position often comes down to minor factors. One of these potential factors can be past criminal convictions.

An employer may pass over a candidate who has a criminal conviction, in favor of one with a clean criminal record. However, those with a criminal conviction should not let their criminal record hold them back from gaining employment. California laws allow an individual convicted of a criminal offense, to have their record expunged, or in other words erased. There are a number of eligibility requirements that must be fulfilled before the court will grant an expungement.

Hiring an experienced criminal defense law firm is the best way to ensure your record is expunged. The skilled California expungement attorneys at Wallin & Klarich have been helping people for over 30 years.
