Glendale DUI Expungement Lawyer
Counsel from an Experienced Glendale DUI Attorney
If you've been arrested and convicted for driving under the influence,
the penalties you have been charged with are harsh enough to deter you
from repeating such a crime. Unfortunately, this does not mean that it
automatically gets removed from your record after your sentence is completed.
DUI expungement can be especially helpful for those hoping to clear their
record. This offense can make it difficult to obtain future employment
and even increase the seriousness of other traffic violations. A Glendale
DUI attorney from The Law Offices of Wade J. Skalsky, APLC can work with
you to ensure that your petition for DUI expungement is up to the standards
of the court.
How does DUI expungement work?
A DUI conviction is recorded in two places – both on a DMV record
and a criminal record. The offense on a DMV record, or driving record,
is irrelevant after 10 years according to California's laws. The criminal
record offense, however, is permanent unless expunged.
Expungement means that the DUI conviction is removed from your criminal
record and no one will ever know that you were convicted. In order to
achieve expungement, you must be eligible.
Eligibility is determined by the following:
- Probationary period completed
- All fines and restitutions paid in full
- Not facing any other charges or sentences
A DUI attorney can help you craft a petition which proves that your expungement
is in the best interest of the court. Your petition will then be reviewed
by the court and will either be granted or denied. The process typically
takes between 90 and 120 days.
