We can determine whether you qualify for expungements and we offer free initial consultations with attorney Morrell. Eric Morrell will listen to your circumstances and discuss the options available to you. The professionals at our office have extensive knowledge of the laws and procedures governing expungements. We handle all matters necessary to complete the process including preparation and filing of all necessary documentation and representation during hearings.
On April 18th, a new law in New Jersey took effect changing the expungement process!
Generally, the waiting period to expunge an indictable offense will be reduced from 10 years to 5 years, and disorderly persons/petty disorderly persons will be reduced from 5 years to 3 years. It is our understanding that if you were accepted into and completed Drug Court, you can also expunge your entire criminal record. This is all done with the discretion of the County Prosecutor’s Office.
People, who previously were not eligible for an expungement, could now possibly have it done much earlier. If you or someone you know wants to expunge their record, and want more information about the process, please contact our offices at 732-249-9933.
