San Jose Appeals and Record Clearance

San Jose and Palo Alto criminal defense lawyers serving Cupertino, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Redwood City, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Saratoga & Sunnyvale

The criminal defense lawyers at Cahners & Samuels understand the serious consequences that criminal convictions can have for clients, their families, their jobs, and their futures. Through appeals and record clearances, we work with our clients from the entire Bay Area to eliminate those consequences and return their lives back to normal.


Our attorneys file appeals on behalf of our clients, challenging their convictions and sentences. Because there are time limits for filing an appeal, contact our criminal defense law firm immediately so we can file the necessary paperwork in a timely manner to begin the appeal process. Even if we did not represent a defendant at trial or sentencing, we can review the case and file an appeal on his or her behalf.

Record Clearances

Our attorneys also assist clients with record clearances.  These record clearances are available for many convictions including misdemeanors, felonies and DUI’s. We discuss the benefits of these clearances,  help clients determine whether a record clearance is an option for them and file petitions on their behalf.

We understand how important a record clearance is to our clients, particularly as it affects how they answer questions on job application forms. Therefore, this is a very serious part of our practice.
