Leave Your Past Where It Belongs — In The Past

Expungement refers to the legal removal of a conviction or an arrest from a person's criminal record — a tremendously powerful thing in light of the negative and long-lasting impact a criminal record can have on a person's career, education, family and finances. In New Jersey, record expungement presents a great opportunity for thousands of men and women to leave their past where it belongs — in the past.

New Jersey law allows for the expungement of drug arrests and certain drug convictions — meaning that the arrest or conviction is considered to never have occurred. The help of a knowledgeable attorney is critical if you are interested in pursuing the expungement of a drug-related conviction for a crime such as drug possession.

New Jersey's New Expungement Laws

In April 2016, new laws went into effect designed to directly benefit those who were convicted of a crime and have led a crime-free lifestyle in the intervening time period. Convicted individuals who have graduated from drug court — those who have successfully completed the state's probation program for drug addicts — might see their criminal records wiped clean.
