About our Founding Attorney

Shan D Potts Esq, is the founder attorney of The Better Start. Over his distinguished career Mr. Potts has helped several thousands and continues to do so. As an advocate, negotiator and problem solver the Better Start was created to assist those with criminal conviction to have a second chance at a brighter future.

“One of my greatest joys is to help people achieve their dreams, to help others overcome legal hurdles and actualize goals. There is nothing else I rather do”.

The Better Start is one of the very few law firms in California to focus solely on criminal record clearing and post–conviction criminal defense.

From the moment you sign up for one of our record clearing services you will work closely with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney, who will be there for you every step of the way. The best part of it all is that you don’t even have to leave your home to get started. Convenient, Confident, Secure and Trusted … A Better Start.
