California DUI Expungement Lawyers

In the California criminal system, a DUI conviction becomes a permanent part of a person’s record. A person’s DUI charges are shared with law enforcement agencies, the legal system, and the Department of Motor Vehicles. The length of time that those charges remain on the DMV records and affect your driving privileges depends on the severity of the charges and a wide range of other factors. The experienced Orange County DUI court attorneys at Takakjian & Sitkoff, LLP will be able to explain these factors, answer any questions you may have, and will explore every opportunity to have the DUI charges expunged from your records.

Depending on the specifics of the situation, a DUI offense can be classified as a misdemeanor or felony and result in fines, community service, jail or prison sentences, as well as drug or alcohol classes and counseling. To qualify for DUI expungement in California, you must have:

  • Completed any prison sentences which arose from the DUI conviction
  • Performed any community service ordered by the court
  • Paid any fines resulting from the DUI conviction
  • Attended drug or alcohol classes and counseling sessions
