Obtaining a Governor’s Pardon in California Under Gavin Newsom
Gavin Newsom became California’s 40th Governor on January 7, 2019. He is a well known liberal and criminal justice reformer.
Under Governor Brown, our law firm is proud to have obtained full and unconditional pardons for 20 clients. All rights, including gun rights, were restored to our clients.
Most people who think that they need a California pardon actually need an expungement rather than a Governor’s pardon. That’s actually good because the odds of receiving a criminal pardon in California are much lower than the odds of obtaining a California expungement. However, for many people – who want to do everything possible to clear their name – a California governor’s pardon is the only option. We can serve as your California pardon attorney and handle everything.
In many cases, the first step is to determine whether you qualify for an expungement rather than a governor’s pardon, and determine whether that will achieve your goals.
If you do not qualify for an expungement, the next step is to determine whether you qualify for a Certificate of Rehabilitation, which provides many benefits, and also serves as an automatic application for a California pardon.
If you do not qualify for an expungement or a certificate of rehabilitation, then we can seek a direct California pardon from the governor’s pardon office. This is also known as “executive clemency.” Applying for a pardon is a long and complex process. However, for some people, a California pardon is exactly what’s needed and is the only remedy that will achieve their goals.
