Every person who has been convicted of a criminal offense in New Jersey of Pennsylvania state courts has the right to an appeal. Attorney Stephen R. Piper has handled multiple appeals. He will help you appeal a conviction and help you to understand what you can expect from these cases.
The laws regarding expungements vary from state to state. Clearing criminal records for our clients in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we can answer any questions you may have about the process and help you understand your options:
- Pennsylvania: In Pennsylvania, only nonconviction criminal data can be expunged. You will be able to seek an expungement after a thirty day probationary period. With some cases, you may be able to seek an expungement sooner. After your expungement, your record may still be found under seal, in the Office of the District Attorney, where it remains confidential. Some cases may still be held by the Department of Motor Vehicles as well.
- New Jersey: In New Jersey, you may file for expungement to a criminal conviction after a certain number of years, depending on the offense. Once you have been granted an expungement you will be able to say that you have never been convicted of a crime, or even arrested. You may not expunge a DWI from your record, but these charges remain on your driving record, and will never be part of your criminal record. In New Jersey, people are only allowed one chance to expunge their records.
Whether you are interested in pursuing the appeals process to have your conviction overturned or you would like a fresh start with an expungement, we can help.
