Law Office of John Stanko — SF Bay Area Criminal Defense

If you have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor crime in California, that conviction will be documented on your permanent criminal record. Even if the conviction occurred years ago, you may be required to disclose the arrest and conviction when filling out a job application or other documents. If a criminal record is hurting your search for a job or housing—contact my law firm about expunging these convictions and getting a fresh start.

Expungement: A Chance to Start off Right

As a lawyer, one of the most valuable services I provide to clients is in helping them to expunge previous criminal convictions from their public record. My firm represents people throughout the San Francisco Bay Area in these matters and also provides help with post-sentencing concerns such as sentence reduction hearings, early termination of probation hearings, and more.

While certain serious crimes may not be expunged, many individuals will have the right to clear or expunge their record as soon as one year after a conviction or after completing probation. In any event, if your previous convictions are eligible to be expunged be assured that I will do everything I can as your attorney to make certain you get the second chance you deserve.
