Have you had a "youthful transgression" in New Jersey that you regret and wish would go away? Is it interfering with you getting a job or moving on with your life? Then perhaps an expungement of the charges would be in order!
An expungement is the wiping out of minor criminal convictions or arrests from the public record. Once it is entered, the arrest, conviction, and any proceedings related to the offense are deemed never to have taken place (with some exceptions).
An expungement can wipe away a multitude of sins, including:
- Disorderly or petty disorderly persons offenses (misdemeanors)
- Violations of municipal ordinances
- Arrests of any felony, misdemeanor, or ordinance where there was no conviction
Expungements are a one-shot deal, so they should be used only once. If you are looking to "clean up your act" and get the skeletons out of your closet, this can be just the thing!
If you live in southern New Jersey and would like to get an expungement, I would be happy to help! Feel free to call me at 856-432-4113 or contact me through this site" for a free consultation in my Woodbury office.
