I have one and I've had background checks and gotten through. EY doesn't care about your DUI, not sure which firm you're with. You can get it expunged if you want to, it'll cost you though, probably 3-5k. I think it's worth it, I have to wait another 6mths to start the process. You have to wait two years I think in CA

Hm, I also spent several thousand on a lawyer to get it to a wet reckless and she told me another 3k. Lawyers suck man

The cost of the wet and reckless was definitely worth it. The lawyer filling out a form though definitely not.

@EY1 They can't be expunged

^false statement. But different state laws come into play. My state can have them expunged.

It's just the beginning 😎

Only 1?

Yes, just one

Getting it expunged costs like $100-200 in CA. You fill out a form and send it in. They can block it too, then you have to go in front of a court and explain why you want it expunged. If it's you're only offense, they will let it go. This is all assuming misdemeanor DUI where no one was hurt. I'm sure felony ones are much different.

Thanks EY1

Damn. My state they can't be. #blown

I have a family visit coming up next week that is looking likely to conflict with a major client deadline. I’ve canceled my fair share of vacations for this job, but after a year+ of pandemic isolation, loss and nonstop work, this one is a big deal — I need to be present for my family for just these couple of days. Any ideas for how to frame this to the client? In house lawyers, is there an acceptable way your outside counsel could handle this situation? I am feeling so sad and stressed.
