Client and his then girlfriend were in a longterm relationship. The couple became pregnant and so my client decided to get engaged to form a loving family unit.The couple moved in together and shared a cramped one bedroom apartment. Soon signs that the relationship was troubled began to surface. The couple got into arguments regularly, and the girlfriend would often go out with her friends at night to cope. After the birth of their son, things only deteriorated further.
One night my client’s girlfriend stayed out late with her friends and returned home around 2am. My client refused to let her into the house and the couple argued at the threshold of the door. The neighbors called the police and they came and arrested my client.
He ended up being charged with a misdemeanor, for forcefully holding the door closed and obstructing the entrance to the home.

Expungement Client met her first love.
Unfortunately he was the bad boy type and was involved in heavy drug and alcohol use.
My client entered a dark phase in her life, and ended up shoplifting from Nordstrom’s. She was eventually convicted of petty theft, California Penal Code Section 488.
After she completed her probation she wanted to turn her life around. She ended things with her boyfriend and moved home. She enrolled into a nursing program. She did exceptionally well. When it came time for her to apply to a University to transfer and in preparation for her licensing exams, she hired me to have her conviction expunged from her record.
I filed her petition and in it, I articulately expressed to the court that my client was the embodiment of what the law deems as a rehabilitated person. She had moved on with her life, completed probation without any issues, and now was receiving top marks in her classes and wanted to pursue a career as a nurse, and become a responsible member of society.
The court granted our petition under Penal Code Section 1203.4.
Result: Client cried and went off to apply to the nursing programs within the California UC School system.
