Expungement Lawyer

Santa Barbara Expungement Attorney

The Law Offices of Gregory McMurray P.C. is a Santa Barbara law firm with expertise helping people expunge or seal their criminal records. We understand the importance of having a clear criminal record. A negative mark on your criminal record can affect your future employment options, educational opportunities, and greatly impact your way of life. For these reasons, we strive to make the expungement and sealing process easy.

Once your criminal record has been sealed or expunged, we know that you will feel a sense of relief and have the ability to move forward with your life. Most people refer to an expungement as “cleaning up your criminal record.”

If you have a criminal record, then you already know how it can cause long-term problems when you apply for jobs, loans or even try to rent an apartment or home. An expungement is a legal procedure in which a conviction is cleared from a criminal record. This does not mean that the conviction is removed entirely; rather it means that the conviction will no longer be able to be viewed by the public.

After an expungement has been successfully completed, the individual may legally say that he or she has not been arrested for or convicted of the expunged crime. This will give a person the fresh start that they need to pursue their goals, without having the stigma of a criminal conviction.

Why Seal your Criminal Record?

The majority of people do not understand that if they were arrested but never formally charged or even if their case was dismissed or they were not found guilty, the records of the arrest and of the court case still exist. These are part of a person’s non-judicial and judicial criminal records. These records are public and will not simply disappear or go away with time. If this situation applies to you, you need an experienced expungement lawyer. After an expungement, you can truthfully answer a job or loan application that you do not have a criminal record. This can make all the difference in important opportunities. FYI: Not everyone is eligible to have their criminal record expunged.

Free Consultation, Reasonable Fees

Keep in mind that you can only have one conviction cleared at a time and that you must follow the necessary steps to have each individual offense removed from your record. Not all convictions can be cleared from your record. We will investigate your case, and establish whether or not you are eligible to have your record cleared. If so, we will begin the process immediately. We are committed to answering your questions, returning your calls promptly, and keeping you up to date on the progress of your case.

Mr. McMurray was my lawyer when I was arrested by the SB County Sheriff’s department. I won’t go into details, but I was in serious trouble… Mr. McMurray was truthful and helpful through the entire process. I ended up avoiding jail time all together and I haven’t looked back since.  I can happily say he got me a second chance.


I reached out to Elvia to help with an expungement. It was a very complex case and Elvia was extremely thorough, diligent, and professional throughout the entire process. In the end, our request for expungement was granted and I’m quite sure it would not have been granted without her help. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a great attorney on their side


Mr. McMurray did an amazing job helping my son through a series of negotiations. He researched the case, attended meetings, and supported my son one hundred percent. He had a great rapport with my son and helped him feel less anxious about the proceedings. I recommend Mr. McMurray wholeheartedly.

Past Client

In a field that many people don’t know much about until circumstances force them to seek legal help, Elvia looks out for her client’s interests above her own. She responded quickly to my concerns and explained everything to me in a manner which I understood. Elvia is trustworthy and honest. I highly recommend Elvia!
