Client Stories

The entire LAOC staff went above and beyond to help me with my case. They could not have been be more helpful. My attorney was especially compassionate, knowledgeable and extremely patient with me during the entire process.
~ Kimberly

The attorney at the Expungement Clinic was extremely knowledgeable and helpful about my situation. He made me feel really good about my chances of receiving my cases expunged, and then LAOC assisted me in getting all of my paperwork completed correctly and sent to the right people. I have since gone to court and had all three of my charges expunged. I have been able to get the job that I wanted and needed to support my family. Thank you for all of the good work.

I want to express my gratitude to LAOC.  When I first came through the door in February 2020, I was completely without hope.  I had spent the last decade in an abusive marriage, and my spouse wanted to take my children away from me.  Thanks to you, I sought the mental health treatment you recommended and have been sober for over a year.  You took my case and advocated for me so that I could get divorced, have parenting time with my children, and get an equitable split of the few assets we had. I am forever grateful and sincerely thank you for the positive impact you had on my life.
