Expungement Attorney NJ

Expunging A Criminal Record Can Open Up New Opportunities

Once a conviction has been rendered, it stays on your criminal record forever until action is taken to remove it from the record. In some situations, though not all, it is possible to remove criminal convictions from a person’s criminal record. This process is called expungement. This is a formal petition to the court that needs to be handled by an experienced expungement attorney.

At the office of James M. Porfido, Attorney at Law, we have extensive experience helping clients navigate the expungement process and obtain a fresh start. We have handled many different types of expungements, including DUI expungements and felony expungements. However, we are able to handle most criminal record expungements for clients across northern New Jersey.

By expunging your criminal record, you essentially clear it and make it difficult for potential employers, future landlords, and other legal professionals to discover the conviction that previously existed on your record. It is important to note that not all convictions may be expunged and that the conviction may possibly be discovered at some point in time.
