In addition to protecting your rights during criminal proceedings, our criminal law attorneys can also help protect them afterwards.

Our criminal defense attorneys have helped many residents in New Jersey obtain expungements.

On April 18, 2016, a law amending New Jersey’s Expungement Law went into effect. The amendment makes it easier for nonviolent ex-offenders to clear their records. It is crucial that you have the assistance of a qualified New Jersey attorney with vast knowledge of the many laws that can affect the outcome of your case.
