A criminal record can have a negative impact on your life. There are many reasons for wanting to have a criminal record set aside. Many employers will not hire someone with a felony. You may be wanting to have your gun rights restored or regain your right to vote. You may have been denied when applying for a lease on an apartment or other contracts as well. Having your record set aside and putting your past behind you is a great way to move on with your life.

If you’ve been “convicted” of a Felony offense in the State of California, you’ve lost certain important rights (known as “civil rights”) such as the right to vote, the right to serve on a jury and the right to possess, use and/or own a firearm. Furthermore, a convicted Felon may be ineligible for certain professional and occupational licenses.
Please remember that a “withhold of adjudication” is not a conviction and will not cause you to lose your civil rights.
The loss of your civil rights can have a devastating effect on your life. You may encounter problems getting the type of job you want, or getting a loan or financial aid, or even living in an apartment complex of your choice.
