If you are concerned about the educational or employment consequences of your New Jersey criminal record, it is worth your time to look into whether it is possible to get your record expunged so that your arrest or conviction will not show up in background checks.
At The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, our expungement lawyers have the experience to help clients eliminate damaging criminal records. From our offices in Princeton, we have successfully obtained expungements on behalf of many clients in Mercer County and throughout the state.Determining Whether You Are Eligible for an Expungement
If you have been convicted of a crime — or even if you were arrested and never convicted — your criminal record may be having an impact on your job prospects and educational opportunities. Under New Jersey law, you may be eligible for an expungement of your record. We specialize in expunging the following records:
- Record of Arrest
- Municipal Ordinance Violation
- Misdemeanor Convictions (Disorderly Persons Offenses)
- Felony Convictions (Indictable Offenses)
- Juvenile Record
- Drug Offenses (under 21 years old)
Even if you are eligible to get your record cleared, the rules governing expungements in New Jersey are complex. Applications have to be made to as many as 12 different government departments throughout the State to get your record fully expunged.
Depending on the nature of the offense you were arrested for or convicted of, you may be eligible for an expungement right away, or you may have to wait as long as 10 years. Our attorneys will carefully evaluate your specific circumstances to determine whether you can apply for an expungement.
Trying to clear your arrest or conviction record without a lawyer can be extremely frustrating. We know the process and will work efficiently to get your expungement taken care of expeditiously.Experienced Criminal Law Attorneys in Princeton · (609) 683-8102
