Our client was previously convicted of felony assault with a deadly weapon under California Penal Code Section 245. Having a criminal record had devastating consequences on our client. Seeking relief from these consequences, our client called Wallin & Klarich.

Attorney Klarich met with our client and determined the best way to seek relief would be to apply for a Certificate of Rehabilitation. Our skilled attorneys filed a petition for Certificate of Rehabilitation to the court and showed the court how our client had demonstrated rehabilitation since being convicted.

The court granted our client a Certificate of Rehabilitation.

There are many benefits to a Certificate of Rehabilitation in California. Obtaining a Certificate of Rehabilitation can do all of the following:

  • Relieve some sex offenders from their lifetime duty to register under PC 290
  • Serve as an official document to show that a convicted offender is rehabilitated, which could help when seeking employment
  • Enhance an offender’s ability to acquire a state license
  • Serve as an automatic application for a Governor’s Pardon
