Prop 64's passage reclassified many marijuana-related crimes from felonies, to misdemeanors. Under the new law, a felony conviction involving marijuana possession, sales, etc., may be reduced to a misdemeanor (or an infraction, see below). We can petition the court on your behalf to get your felony reduced under Prop 64. Prop 64 reduction from felony to misdemeanor may help you in your employment, when seeking housing, and for many other purposes. Call Prop 64 Lawyer Matthew Luzaich for a free consultation regarding your eligibility to get your conviction reduced.
If you were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony that is now classified as an infraction, we are able to petition the court on your behalf to reduce your felony or misdemeanor conviction to an infraction. Infractions always look better on a person's record than either a felony or misdemeanor. Infractions are the lowest levels of crimes, and include violations like speeding, stop sign violations and other minor offenses.
Many employers don't even ask whether a person has been convicted of an infraction on their job applications. Not having to disclose an infraction conviction to a prospective employer may just be the difference landing you a position.
If you were convicted of a crime that no longer is punishable criminally, our law firm may petition the court that convicted you to dismiss your case and seal the record of conviction. For example, people convicted of a misdemeanor or infraction for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana (not in an open container in a vehicle) may now seek to have their conviction dismissed and sealed because under the new law, their actions would no longer be illegal. This is exceptional relief. Essentially, it's as if it never happened, and you can legally say "I've never been convicted of that crime."
