Served time in state prison? Parolee status affecting you getting a job or leasing an apartment?
You can expunge your criminal record even if state/federal jail time was served. An expunged record will also address parolee status in the eyes of employers obtaining a professional license or from getting a job to leasing an apartment (individual circumstance sensitive).

Record Clearance Testimonial
“I recently contact the law firm on a request to reduce a felony conviction to a misdeamenor. The request was denied (some time back using another law firm)because Probation, the DA and the judge said it has since been amended to a non-alternative felony”. The old law firm was shocked and of course never bothered to discover the changes to the charges) I knew at the time of the offense it was a wobbler. Well thanks to Mr. Green he did the research and found it was indeed changed but 18 months after my conviction date. Today I am no longer a convicted felon. My life will shine much brighter as a result. Thanks Holden! With great thanks. – G.S. Berfols 8/4/10″
