Help With Expungement In California
At Bird & Van Dyke, we help our clients looking to get a fresh start through expungement. A criminal record presents challenges and obstacles for those trying to put their lives back together. A felony conviction that shows up in a background check can end employment searches and other pursuits.

Upon approval, you can get a second chance without worrying about post-conviction consequences.
Not only can you apply for jobs without fear of a background check, you can also get your gun rights back. Your right to own a firearm is stripped away upon conviction of a felony, a lifetime ban that can only be overturned by expungement.
