Expungement Attorney In Morris County, 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.

Expungement Leads To Benefits In Job Searches, Housing Searches, And More

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.

Attorney James M. Porfido is a knowledgeable and respected criminal defense lawyer, known throughout New Jersey. His skill and experience as a criminal defense lawyer is reflected in his certification by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a criminal trial attorney in 1995 and in 2002. Mr. Porfido has frequently lectured on victim’s rights and criminal trial preparation for continuing legal education courses and seminars, teaching other lawyers. Mr. Porfido has also frequently appeared as a guest on Court TV as a commentator on the Closing Arguments program, hosted by Nancy Grace, and Trial Heat, hosted by Janice Floyd.
