If you would like help removing a past mistake from your record, the law firm of Bramnick, Rodriguez, Grabas, Arnold & Mangan, LLC can help. Our criminal defense lawyers specialize in defending clients charged with all criminal offenses and know how to navigate the complex process of expungement.
In New Jersey, many prior arrests, convictions and/or violations can be legally removed from your record. Arrests are matters of public record and will often show up on criminal background investigations conducted by employers or creditors in both New Jersey and other states. The results of these investigations may affect personal relationships, employment, financial security and your overall reputation. For these reasons, it is crucial that you speak with a Linden Expungement Lawyer to clear your name.
What Is an Expungement?
Expungement is a legal process used to “clean” a criminal record by isolating the records of any prior arrests or convictions. Records, as defined by N.J.S.A. § 2C:52-1b, include: criminal complaints, warrants, arrests, commitments, processing records, fingerprints, photographs, index cards, “rap sheets” and judicial docket records. Upon successful completion of the expungement process, an ordinary background search will not reveal any offense that was properly expunged from your record.
