Palo Alto Appeals and Record Clearance

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

The criminal defense lawyer Edwin E. Samuels, Attorney at Law understands the serious consequences that criminal convictions can have for clients, their families, their jobs, and their futures. Through appeals and record clearances, I work with clients from the entire Bay Area to eliminate those consequences and return their lives back to normal.


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

Record Clearances

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

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

Criminal Defense Lawyer Who Understands the Process

The California appeals and record clearance process can be technical and complicated. It is imperative to hire a qualified criminal defense attorney with specific skills in these areas. Clients may have several options available under the law based on the nature and disposition of their crimes. I can explain the options available and determine the best course of action for each particular case. Contact me online today.

My Palo Alto criminal defense firm serves all of Northern California and the Bay Area with particular emphasis on appeals and expungements for Cupertino, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Redwood City, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and Alameda County.
