Sacramento Victim and Witness Attorney
Victims and witnesses are recognized by the state legislature as having special status. Proposition 9 or the Victim's Bill of Rights Act of 2008: Marsy's Law greatly expanded this area of the law. If you have received a subpoena to testify in a criminal case, contact us to discuss your right and obligations. Having an experienced attorney on your side can make your difficult experience as a witness or victim a bit easier. Understanding the criminal legal process is only one part of the process. Understanding that you have specific rights is the more important part.
If you're looking for a new start or are simply trying to obtain a job but your misdemeanor or felony conviction makes it difficult, you should apply for an expungement. An expungement is a petition to the court to dismiss your prior conviction and seal the records. While an expungement will not erase criminal history, it will update it to show that the charges have been expunged. A California employer cannot legally deny employement based on any convictions that have been expunged. Also, in most cases, an expungement will enable you to once again legally and truthfully check the "no convictions" box on an employment aplication.
