An Arrest Or Conviction Doesn’t Have To Ruin Your Future Opportunities – Talk To An Experienced Morristown Criminal Defense Attorney
Filing an appeal of your case is the first step in fighting a conviction in New Jersey criminal cases. If you do not agree with the outcome of your case in trial court, you may appeal to a higher court. Appellate courts are designed to ensure that laws are correctly interpreted and accused individuals are treated fairly in lower courts.
At James M. Porfido, Attorney at Law, LLC, in Morristown, NJ, we represent clients in appeals. Typically, these appeals are the result of a conviction in the Municipal Court after the trial. These appeals are filed and heard on a Trial de Novo basis in the Superior Court. These are complex cases that require a thorough understanding of New Jersey and federal criminal statutes, as well as court procedure and conduct. Attorney Porfido’s credentials as a trial attorney who appears regularly in court make him a trusted lawyer in a broad range of criminal matters.
Expunging A Criminal Record In New Jersey
An appeal is available to a person who feels they were convicted in error. For those who do not feel their arrest or criminal conviction was in error, expungement is a means of removing an arrest or conviction from public records so it will not be seen by employers, prospective employers, landlords, lending institutions, or other parties that may conduct a background search on you through the New Jersey State Police or the FBI.
Following expungement, a person is legally able to state that an arrest or conviction never occurred. You are right to be concerned about an arrest or conviction. It can have long-term consequences on your life. We are prepared to review the facts of your case and recommend an effective course of action.
