Mercer County Expungement Lawyer | Here to Help Clear Your Record
Were you convicted of a crime? Are you sick of being weighed down by your criminal record? You need an experienced Mercer County criminal defense lawyer who can help you receive the expungement you need to move on with your life.
What is Expungement?
If you were ever arrested, it goes on your criminal record. If you were convicted of a crime, that goes on your criminal record too. The court keeps detailed documentation of everything. Employers and apartments often check your record. Just one arrest can cost you big. Some offenses have even greater implications.
An expungement attorney can help. Expungement is achieved through court proceedings. When a judge rules in your favor, it’s like saying nothing ever happened. All traces are completely removed from your record. As a result, you should see more housing options, more employment opportunities, you will have your gun rights restored, and an overall better reputation.
Who is Eligible for Expungement?
An expungement attorney can evaluate your eligibility. Determining factors include:
- The Conviction: Some convictions, such as murder or sexual assault, cannot be expunged.
- Number of Convictions: They will only grant expungement so many times.
- Fines: You should pay your fines before going to court.
- Pending Charges: If there are charges pending against you, now might not be the best time.
- Time Since Conviction: New Jersey has wait time guidelines.
Expungement Attorney Douglas Herring will evaluate your case. He will tell you if now is the right time. If not, he will advise you on wait time. Douglas never charges for consultations.
