Paramus Criminal Arrests & Record Expungements
An arrest or criminal charge from Paramus will leave a record on your criminal history no matter what the outcome was. Many people mistakingly believe that if a matter is dismissed in New Jersey, it is automatically sealed. This is untrue. Unfortunately, you don’t usually find out that the charges are still on your record until a prospective employer finds out.
Even where you were convicted of the charges, they may be expunged depending on how long ago it occurred and the rest of your record. Give me a call to inquire whether you are eligible for an expungement.
