Question: I need the help of a DUI attorney in the Van Nuys / Sherman Oaks area. Can an employer use a DUI conviction as a reason not to hire me???

Answer: I am not an employment law attorney, as I focus on DUI and criminal defense. That being said, it is possible that an employer would use a DUI conviction in determining whether to hire you or not. Particularly if the job would involve driving. I would recommend petitioning the court for an expungement (ie. dismissal) of the conviction, which can help you in the job market. Was your DUI in Van Nuys? Feel free to call me at 818-336-1384 if you would like to discuss the expungement option in more detail.
