Expungement

Need Help With Expungement in New Jersey?

Criminal records can represent serious problems for anyone with a past record of convictions or even arrests. Contact an experienced defense lawyer at the Law Offices of John F. Marshall for statewide client service in expungement.

Protect your employment prospects and educational opportunities

To expunge a criminal record is to keep it out of public view. Expungement keeps prospective employers, landlords, and university admissions offices from finding records of a conviction or arrest. Your interest in achieving expungement is obvious, but the process can be complicated.

We work with our clients to make sure that you're eligible for expungement and that your application is complete and accurate. The right to a clear criminal record varies according to the nature and severity of the offense, and records of certain crimes cannot be expunged. Examples include criminal homicide, certain other violent crimes, major drug crimes, many sex offenses, and crimes like perjury or false swearing.

Also depending on the particular offense, you might not be able to achieve expungement of your entire criminal record. We use our experience with criminal records problems to give our clients dependable advice about their options so that you can decide whether you stand to gain from expungement proceedings.

Our attention to detail in expungement can protect your future

The more information you can give us about your past experience with law enforcement and the criminal courts, the easier it will be to analyze your situation and make sure that all of your criminal records are covered in your expungement application. Our own investigation picks up where yours leaves off — there's nothing worse than to find that a successful expungement still leaves criminal records available for public view.

In many cases, we can achieve expungement for indictable offenses, disorderly persons convictions, juvenile records, young drug offenders, and arrests without conviction. To learn more about your own eligibility for expungement, contact an attorney at our office in Shrewsbury, Cranford, or four other New Jersey locations.
