Pursuing All Avenues Of Relief
There are a number of post-conviction relief opportunities available to you, depending upon the nature of your charge, the severity of the offense and other factors. We can help you pursue all of them, including:
- Expungement: An expungement essentially frees you from all penalties of a criminal conviction once you have successfully completed your probation. If your record has been expunged, you can truthfully answer “no” when a potential employer asks if you have been convicted of a crime. Many misdemeanor and felony convictions can be expunged, but there are requirement to be met, and evaluation is needed to determine if eligible for such relief.
- Reductions: In some circumstances, it is possible to have a conviction reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor or even a misdemeanor to an infraction.
- Juvenile Record Sealing
- Adult Arrest Record Sealing
- Certificate of Rehabilitation (COR)/Pardon from the Governor: We can help you determine if you meet the criteria for a COR or a Pardon from the Governor. If so, we can guide you through the filing requirements and other necessary legal steps. Pardon from the Governor is an extensive process. Ms. Freeze has successfully filed and won over 90 percent of her COR cases, and has three Pardons from former Governor Brown and several pending before Governor Newsom.
We can help you explore all the legal options available to you so that you can make the best decisions regarding your future.
