Clean Slate Application

For the past two decades, the Clean Slate program has helped people clear their criminal history. Our program can help you dismiss convictions, reduce felonies to misdemeanors, and seal and destroy arrest records so you can meaningfully move forward in life. We understand the difficulty of navigating the legal system during the pandemic, so we made this application process as easy as possible!

Simply complete the below application and we will: 1) obtain your criminal history, 2) identify eligible relief, 3) file legal motions, and 4) contact you by mail within four weeks of your initial application. By submitting your request, you authorize the Public Defender’s Office to obtain your criminal rap sheet. If you have any questions, please call 415-553-9337. Thank you for your interest in our program!
