The skilled criminal defense lawyers at Schibell & Mennie have helped people reclaim their lives after a criminal conviction.
Even a relatively minor criminal offense can tarnish your good name. Because most records are easily accessible online, a criminal past can come back to haunt you in a number of ways. From applying for jobs to renting an apartment, just one mistake from years ago can trip you up over and over again.
Fortunately, New Jersey law makes it possible to expunge arrest records and certain criminal and juvenile convictions.
The expungement process can be complicated. It involves a great deal of paperwork, as well as a knowledge of the law and the steps involved. You have a much higher likelihood of success if you work with a lawyer who knows how to handle expungement cases.
For felony convictions, most people are eligible for expungement attorney after five years as long as they can show the expungement is in the “public interest.” If 10 years or more have passed since your conviction, you don’t need to prove the public interest element.
At Schibell & Mennie, we are in the business of helping people improve their lives. Don’t let an arrest record or criminal conviction hold you back.
