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.

He gave me the peace of mind that my DUI case was going to be resolved. He fought for what it was needed and helped me by answering all my questions. Mike is not an average attorney. He’s a very experienced, honest and straightforward person that is there for you!

I hired Attorney Mike Kraut and I'm am so happy and grateful that I did! I was arrested for a DUI because my BAC level was over the .08 limit. I ended up getting a wet and reckless instead of a DUI. I still have to do some classes and I'm on probation, but I do not have a DUI on my record. If you have a DUI hire Attorney Kraut, he definitely knows his stuff!
