DUI Expungements

Los Angeles DUI Expungement LawyerWhat is an Expungement?

An expungement is a legal process whereby you essentially withdraw your "guilty" or "no contest" plea and, with court approval, the court then allows the case to be dismissed. This basically removes the coniction from your record for most instances. For those having prior DUI arrests, it is sometimes very important to be able to have them expunged. By consulting with a Los Angeles DUI lawyer, they can help you determine whether expungement will work for your specific circumstances.

An expungement of a DUI conviction can greatly assist an individual attempting to get employment where it would otherwise disqualify them. Most employers seeing a conviction on an applicant's application will think twice about hiring you, or choose a candidate that has a clean record.Once expunged, you would no longer have to put a DUI conviction on any job application or in other instances. However, if applying as a peace officer, teacher, or running for public office, this would still need to be disclosed.

Michael Kraut is outstanding! He genuinely cared about my case and instructed my mom and I throughout the entire process. He was very clear on what he needed in order to receive the best results. He kept us updated until the end. I thank him so much for getting my charges rejected. I highly recommend him to anyone with legal needs! Shaquan
I contacted Michael with concern for my personal and business reputation. He was very reassuring and confident the entire time. After about 3 weeks it was determined that no charges were being filed by any agency and I was in the clear of any investigation. One thing that is amazing is just how FAST Michael is at replying to phone calls, texts, and even emails! We are talking under 30 minutes in most cases. That is unheard of for most attorneys! Michael is incredible and not your typical run of the mill attorney. For best results hire him if you feel like you might be under investigation or could face charges. Even if you know you are innocent it is best to take care of the smoke before it becomes a fire. Brad
Michael Kraut is-hands down-the best criminal defense attorney and I can't begin to thank him for all that he did for me and my family. I reached out to him in the middle of the night and less than a couple hours later, he had gotten back to me and scheduled a meeting. He's a no-nonsense attorney who knows how to get the job done! From the second we retained him, I had peace of mind in knowing that we were in the best hands possible. If Michael Kraut couldn't get it done, I knew that it couldn't be done at all. You can't put a price tag on your freedom. He was worth every single penny. Lida
Michael Kraut is an outstanding attorney. He was extremely professional, and straightforward, yet sensitive with my case. I am confident I made the right choice by hiring Michael. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly experienced lawyer. Daniel
Michael Kraut - I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for ​my son. When I came to you I read that you used to be a district attorney but I never knew how much that meant until I watch you in court. I knew it took 3 months but the final day when I heard the judge say that all charges were dismissed it was all worth it! I will always be grateful for all that you did for us. A.N.
